Biffo Cowan Takes British Lives For Granted
In a daring raid New York Times journalist Stephen Farrell was rescued by British forces. A British soldier, Farrell's Afghan interpreter and an Afghan woman were killed in the raid. British PM Gordon Brown honoured the bravery of the dead British soldier and the "breathtaking heroism" of all those taking part in the raid. Stephen Farrell holds joint British-Irish citizenship. Teashop Biffo "Brian" Cowen has so far made no comment or thanks for the sacrifice of the British soldier who rescued an Irish citizen. Is Biffo the new Ungrateful Bastard of The Year, replacing popular Hamid Karzi? Or has the Irish Prez. offered the Republic's thanks on his behalf?
