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.

First comment:

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…)
