Libya: rioters are ‘legitimate UK government’
World News: A gleeful Colonel Gaddafi warmly praised the rioters and looters running amok on Britain’s streets today, and has been quick to officially recognise them as ‘the legitimate UK government’.
Congratulating what he called ‘London’s young rebel fighters’ for mounting a ‘revolutionary strike’ against the ‘Cameron tyranny’, Gaddafi said he hoped the coalition government would ‘bend to the will of the people’, dissolve itself and go away.
Speaking from an undisclosed location, the embattled Libyan leader said: “Like myself, these young people like clothes. And electrical goods. Like myself, these young people reject the legitimacy of the Cameron government and, like myself, they are violent and like to set fire to things.”
“In the days to come I plan to send in air support to aid them in their fight.”
“Though at this time, due to difficult circumstances, all I can dispatch is a flock of angry pigeons, I warn Cameron and his thugs not to underestimate their devastating power.”
“After the pigeons come the bees, and after the bees come the pigeons again. Long live the revolution!”
