Utter Condemnation

Proof that the pen is mightier than the sword: Government immediately utterly condemns an MP’s tweet, but refuses to condemn shelling of hospitals and hundreds of missile strikes on family homes.

No nation would accept missiles raining down on them, they say (drone strikes on Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia don’t count).

So we refuse to condemn the slaughter of innocents. But it’s okay: pens are mightier than the most powerful armies on earth, and we will condemn anyone wielding a pen immediately and without reserve.
