Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

All right, I'm working the phrase "complete Horlicks" into conversation wherever possible. The link'll be dead by the time most folks read this (lacking a subscription), but here's a fine paragraph from the Financial Times.

Jack Straw, the foreign secretary, recently described the "dodgy dossier" compiled by Downing Street on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction as "a complete Horlicks". The same phrase would serve equally well to describe yesterday's long-awaited report from the Commons foreign affairs select committee on the government's decision to go to war with Saddam Hussein.



You remember Jack Straw, don'tcha? He's the chap wot said: "People are now trying to suggest that somehow the decision to take military action was entirely conditional on subsequently finding chemical and biological weapons material. That wasn't the case."

It was in all the blogs.
