No This Is Not An April Fools Joke.. Jack was being a bad boy..



British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw really said this....

There he was standing before some 200 dignitaries in Blackburn, the cameras were rolling and Condoleezza "Condi" Rice was listening attentively.As he introduced his guest, the Foreign Secretary held up a copy of a local newspaper and read out the headline: "Condom….er, Condi Comes to the Centre of the World".

Ahh don't believe it? Here is the link. Also if you want to hear is a link to the audio file. It's only a 47 second long clip. The "word" is around 25 seconds in to the clip.

London: Britain's Foreign Secretary Jack Straw was rapped for ungentlemanly conduct after reportedly commandeering US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's private quarters on her official jet.
Rice was reported in a number of British newspapers to have graciously offered her British counterpart the use of her bed and cabin on the Boeing 757 plane and Straw ungallantly accepted, leaving her to sleep on the floor.
What one newspaper called "Bedgate" is said to have happened as the political bedfellows flew to Kuwait at the weekend before transferring to a military flight bound for Baghdad.

I wonder what would have happened had someone said it in India. Or Pak for that matter? Jack Straw has balls for sure..Strange. Went unreported in Mumbai..

Sahibi, I saw that. How ungentlemanly. As I said Jack is being a bad boy!

Viewer maybe you can write a post about the Indian blunders. :)

Keshi.. politicians and dignity are kind of a tough combo to find.

Magpie.. it's not that well reported in the US either. Found the link at a British newspaper.

hey, love the counter you have that shows the cost of the war!! hey sorry for all the bs that you know who is arguing about with you. i just tried to post a comment asking to stop it.. hope it works..

Opin, That's fine, nice of you to try to put a top to that. I am not gonna continue those arguments cos the facts I have never get addressed. Instead something else is put forward or something different is addressed.
Also your place shoudn't be cluttered up with that.

Keshi said...

I think ur right..but atleast when a delegate from another country is being addressed!

Keshi.
