Alan \’not the minister\’ Johnson writes a puffed-up pompous piece on Iran (summary: \”they\’re mad bastards and they\’re going to kill us all! Time to invade!) using a laboured analogy to Camus\’s La Peste.
I\’ve just remembered that Camus\’s most famous novel tells of a man who killed an Arab because of \’the glare of the sun\’, and then shot more bullets into his corpse.
(yes, I know Persians aren\’t Arab. Fuck off…)
