Yeah, look how great the British track record is for making things peaceful in South Asia!

What amazes me is that all this tension is a result of a British desire for tea and spices. The United Kingdom: Our cuisine is so bad, it causes nuclear war!

Peter Preston in The Guardian: "Kashmir is part of the mess that Britain left behind. Fifty years on, the mess that we Brits left behind returns to haunt us all. And this time, with this coalition, we need to sort it. We've started: we have to find a finish."

Tony Blair off to India, lol, first they create the mess, then come back to try and fix it, I think not, maybe he should look in his own backyard, where the pakistanis, indians and skinheads have a nice healthy relationship going. What a sad excuse for a politician, but then aren't they all...
