He'd boost his credentials more by joining Weight Watchers.

That $billion would have fed the country. But I admit I was surprised they actually managed to put a satellite into orbit.

Is it true his wife was hiding inside? Any escape is better than living in this hell on earth. I do feel for these people so completely deprived of even the most basic needs - umm...reminds me of Palestine.

A weather satellite? Really? Hmmmm - and they are so truthful too! I remember seeing details of their first one - that relayed a horrible plinky plonky children's tune - on Have I Got News For You on the BBC...
