Minor Stupidity, Olympic Sized Hypocrisy

It looks like it isn't just New Zealand papers tthat are trying to cut costs by out-sourcing sub-editing duties to third world countries. Here is the sub-heading from an opinion piece in The Times Online, dated 14th July, 2008:

Minky Worden: China must improve its human rights record before the Beijing Olympics
Er, yeah. Like that is going to happen between now and the 8th of August. And even if it did, would three weeks of good behaviour balance out the atrocities carried out over the last sixty odd years?

Not that the actual headline, "China is losing the human rights race" is much better - China lost that race many years ago, and anyone who believed the platitudes offered up by the Bastards of Beijing in their Olympic bid is a fool. Anyone attending their evil games is complicit in their wickedness.

And the Times is far too late and far too mild with its condemnation.
