Take 3

The second Khaddam interview was mysteriously postponed yesterday. It was supposed to air around 9pm last night but there was nothing. An "informed source in Beirut" said that it was only postponed for 24 hours but I have heard another reason which seems to make sense.
Khaddam has obviously had his diplomatic passport revoked and as a result, he has no status in Paris. One way he could sidestep this problem would be to declare political persecution and request political asylum in France. The most important factor in being accepted as a political refugee is that you refrain from making any political comments at all - hence the sudden disappearance of the interview.
If true, this is another problem that needs resolving because I think Chirac, just as much as the rest of us, wants to hear him speak publicly for posterity about the crimes committed by the Assad regime.

In other news, Ariel Sharon, the Israeli PM is in intensive care after suffering a massive stroke. I have already heard rumours from friends who claim they heard on the radio that he was dead but I have been unable to find anything in the mainstream media. I'll update if anything changes.

Jack Straw visited Lebanon yesterday and met with PM Saniora but snubbed Lahoud. Nice. Not a big fan of Straw's, but that was nice.

And on a final note, I think that after the flop of his last film, Jim Carrey has had a career change and is moving to Stamford Bridge to play with my lovely Chelsea under the unlikely name of Maniche (he also does a great Portuguese accent - uncanny!). He should bring a smile to any midfield.

Enjoy.

you'll see the resemblance isn't so obvious... In this one he looks a bit like Maldini!
