Complaint to Sky News

Dear Sir,

I am astounded that Sky news has just broadcast a very pleasant and jolly interview with the editor of Al Quds magazine, regarding Bin Laden's death 50th Birthday (time now 20:42 Saturday).

Al Quds openly support terrorist organisations, and the friendly approach of the Sky news-reader is reproachable. Does Sky news have access to Google? Do they make the most basic checks as to who they have on air and what they represent?

Will Sky News be interviewing editors of Neo Nazi magazines giving their opinion on Hitler's anniversary?

I await your candid response.



Update: How embarrassing. The letter I sent to Sky News said Bin Laden's death, not his birthday. Shit. And to the anonymous commenter I apologise for not noticing your subtle hint. I thought you were just being thick.

    Nobody should be jolly about bin Ladin's death.

    Err I will be very jolly about Bin Ladens death, however nobody should be jolly about Bin Ladens birthday - which I presume you was referring to!

    But is he 50? Was it really his birthday this weekend? As a good Muslim he should be using the Hijri lunar calendar which means, if I got the calculation right, he has got to wait until August for his next round of jelly and trifle.
    Apparently his men bought him a magnificent horse for his 40th birthday. This year circumstances were straitened so he may only have received a gerbil.

    Good research Granny Weatherwax! He's most likely in a hideout in the mountainous region on the Afghan-Pakistan border, so they reckon, so I can't imagine where they would even find a gerbil. Perhaps his birthday present would be something a little more ghoulish. Who knows...

    All right then a rat. But rats can be intelligent little creatures and I didn't want to insult them.
