Vote-winning bill

September 29, 2006 at 10:30 am (Espresso)

The Senate and House of Representatives have approved a terrorism detainee Bill that, AP reports, prohibits “the severe abuse of detainees like mutilation and rape.” Thank god for small mercies. I’ve never had problems at US passport control. My former flatmate, a white, upper-middle class Englishman, however, was strip-searched, gloves on, the works. I told him he was probably stopped as part of their equal opportunities policy – ten camel-jockeys, one croquet player. Either way, we’re all for no mutilation and rape at Soul Bean and will vote Republican.
