Letter: Kosovo: no lectures from China, please
Tuesday 11 May 1999
It is two generations (with the honourable exception of Lord Carrington) since a British politician of any colour has accepted responsibility for conspiracy or cock-up in his ministry. So who will account for this disaster?
Managing to kill four neutral civilians in their own territory is an incompetence at least as great as being in thrall to an eccentric whilst in charge of a football team; failure to compare "intelligence" reports about the whereabouts of important buildings with up-to-date street-maps of Belgrade is negligent idleness commensurate with the failure on the part of a politician to see the inappropriateness of accepting a loan from a wealthy friend and colleague.
I and the People's Republic of China want to know who gets sacked.
