Jack 'n' Meg

Jack Straw got bumped from the Foreign Office because he believes it would be "nuts" to go to war with Iran.

Bush rang Blair and asked him (queruously) what his boy Jack was on.

British Foreign Secretaries are appointed in the White House.

The new Foreign Secretary is Margaret Beckett- famous for having been around a long, long time and for having never said or done anything memorable (except call Neil Kinnock, a "Judas").

She used to be a leftie, but that was in another country; and besides, the wench is dead.
