This time it's The Independent's Johann Hari. He's a bit like Aaronovitch only he doesn't have the leftist background so he can't be accused of knowing better. His Anglo-Iraqi friends like a bit of Harry Enfield apparently and think that the leader of one aspect of the rising against the occupation, Moqtada al-Sadr is the "Kevin the teenager" of Iraq. They are glad the invasion happened and believe that life is better since the invasion. Better for Iraqis in the UK or in Iraq? Don't even go there (as they say). Johann didn't, he stayed at home and watched television with his Anglo-Iraqi friends. I should have said that the link to Hari's comment is a tad superfluous. Would you believe it's pay per view? Don't...just don't. Buy the paper though. Their Middle East coverage is the best (though they have a Zionist editorial policy and have Eric Silver on the payroll - or is it vice versa), they came the closest to openly calling Lord Hutton a liar and they have a cartoonist - Dave Brown - to rival The Guardian's Steve Bell.
