Teacher sentenced to 15 days' imprisonment

Well, I suppose it is less bad than being flogged to death. However, the sentence passed on Gillian Gibbons today still demonstrates mind-boggling backwardness and mean-spiritedness.

What are we to make of a country which, over the last three years, has hoovered up £275 million of our infidel aid, yet which sticks two fingers up at an appeal for clemency over the naming of a teddy bear? I am not sure that I can find the words to express it.
