"In a somer sesun, whon softe was the sonne"

Former Guantanamera inmate and not-a-terrorist Moazzam Begg channels the spirit of Piers Plowman :

A former Guantanamo Bay inmate said that the thought of walking the Worcestershire countryside had helped him cope during his imprisonment.

Moazzam Begg told an audience in Malvern that visiting the Malvern Hills with his family was something he wanted to do when he was finally released.

Moazzam Begg was speaking at a talk at Malvern Baptist Church organised by the Malvern branch of Amnesty International.

Hmm. How romantic. The useful idiot equivalent of 'Hello, Denver, you're a great audience and we love you". Isn't Malvern where these people (formerly the Royal Signals and Radar Research Establishment, sold off to the Yanks by NuLab at a giveaway price) do their work ? Maybe he'll be off to Cheltenham next.

Talking of useful idiots :
The Malvern branch of Amnesty meet regularly on the first Thursday of every month at 7.30pm at Abbey Road Baptist Church and anyone who wants to get involved is welcome.
