Dhimmitude Comes to Wales

The first British newspaper to publish one of the Mohammed cartoons- and a student newspaper at that- has not only been recalled and pulped but the editior and two journalists suspended pending an enquiry.

A spokesperson said the newspaper was recalled after a member of the Student Union noticed the article whilst delivering the paper on Saturday morning. "The edition featured a short piece about the controversy surrounding the Danish satirical cartoons," she said.

"The article was entirely balanced but included a picture of one of the cartoons. We recalled the issues straight away. We do a print run of 10,000 copies and all but 200 have been accounted for."

Cowardice rears its head once more.
