Agreeing with every word…

…that Simon Jenkins says about Burma, over here at the Grauniad a few days ago. Oh, and could someone please persuade Channel 4 News to stop talking about how the Chinese earthquake is all the greater a tragedy because of China’s one child policy? As if grief is proportional to how many kids you have, as if Jimmy Mizen’s parents should by now be struggling to remember their dead son, seeing how he was one of nine. I rather suspect that if I, only child that I am, was crossing the road with a multi-siblinged friend and we were both mown down by an out-of-control bendy bus, my parents would not mourn any more than my friend’s parents.

Bah.
