Just finished reading Michael Gove's Celsius 7/7. No stunning insights or shocking revelations, he's just catalogued the milestones to surrender very neatly. After reading it, I was more pessimistic about our future (was that possible ?)
The surrender to force which was the Danish cartoons affair, when no British newspaper would publish them, and then Foreign Secretary Jack Straw actually apologised for them, will be in the minds of the Orange board when considering the case of Inigo Wilson, the Orange employee suspended by his company after writing a Lefty Lexicon which defined an Islamophobe as someone who objected to being blown up on public transport.
I'm quite sure that this is a board-level issue for Orange. And I'll be amazed if the Muslim Public Affairs Committee don't win this one. If an entire democracy is attacked and deserted by allies like Britain, how will one multinational company perform ?
