True enough. She should be given something to cry about.

Talking of dozy bints, where's Orla Guerlin these days?

(Where are Arafat's millions and why aren't the "Palestinians" angry about them?)

...where are Arafat's millions...

I'm glad you asked.

Ms. Plett missed an opportunity to join her beloved Arafat sitting at the feet of Allah, enjoying raisins.

I admire the way she kept her composure during the  report.  She wept copiously off-air for the bomber(s). A true humanitarian and empath.
