Why Don't You Then, Dearie

There seems to be no end of people who think Israel the root of all evil. This time, it's Jenny Tonge, MP of the British House of Commons. Seems Jenny would consider being a suicide bomber herself:
I think if I had to live in that situation - and I say that advisedly - I might just consider becoming one myself."
Thankfully, her remarks have been pretty roundly condemned (although the PM has been silent). She'll be standing down at the next election in the UK, so her parliamentary career is nearly over, and she'll be free to kill herself. Let's just hope she doesn't take any innocents with her.
UPDATE: Today (Friday), the Leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, The Rt Hon Charles Kennedy MP, stripped Dr. Tongele of her party leadership role.
