British Coverage of U.S. News

I'm behind on my reading, but even if these items are a bit dated, I thought it might interest readers back home to get a look at how the U.K. press covered a couple of stories out of Washington earlier this month. From the 11-24 November issue of Private Eye:


PRINCE Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles have said it was a humbling experience to visit the site of America's worst catastrophe, the Bush Presidency.

"Nothing can really prepare you for seeing 'Ground Zero', or the Oval Office as it's also known, at close hand," a clearly shaken Prince told reporters afterwards. "This place really brings into focus just what wickedness lurks in the heart of men."

Charles and Camilla later joined in a minute's silence to remember Lewis 'Scooter' Libby who gave his career so that thousands of American troops could die in Iraq.

THE Republican Party has welcomed George Bush's latest nomination for the Supreme Court, Judge Attila the Hun.

"We would, in an ideal world, have preferred someone whose politics were slightly to the right of Attila the Hun, but we will accept this nomination," said a senior Republican (cont. p. 94)
