Hypocrisy, Stupidity Or Just Another Typical Politician?

Another Pro-Lifer for War! 

Following political based posts from both Mr M and NP, I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and bring this story [as detailed in most of the mass media] to your attention.

The Prime Minister of Cambodia has told an audience of students that he is disowning and disinheriting his adopted daughter because she is a lesbian.

Sâmdech Hun Sen, 56, has led the country since 1993. He has five children, one of whom is adopted. His family is normally kept out of the public eye.

At a graduation ceremony in the city of Phnom Pehn yesterday, Hun Sen said he will file court papers to ” … deprive her of any will and property of my family”.

“I educated the whole people in my country but I could not educate my adopted daughter,” he said, according to Xinhua News Agency.

He and his wife Bun Rany adopted the girl in 1988 when she was only a few weeks old.

“She brought her girls to my house and slept together with them,” he said.

“We are concerned that one day her girls take bombs and poisonous materials to our house and we all will die.”

However, Mr Hun Sen then asked Cambodia’s 13 million people TO BE MORE TOLERANT OF HOMOSEXUALS.

“I urge parents of gays not to discriminate against them, and do not call them transvestites,” he said.

Yep … very consistent stance Prime Minister, you are a credit to your profession!

You must watch Sicko by the way. Even if its only half true its utterly astonishing.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

On the positive side, at least this guy isn’t denying there are gay people in his country like the Iranian president.

I’ve watched SICKO … and even though Michael Moore has taken the other extreme of the argument … it’s still a frightening and shocking indicment on the US health care system.

I thought Tony Benn came out of it very well … but I also thought the UK Doctor that was the focal point was maybe too much of an exception – because the friends of mine who are hospital DR’s are having a hell-of-a-life at the moment.

Still, I love the British Health Care system and hate it when people [1] slag it off and [2] complain about it but then say they don’t want to contribute any more tax to its upkeep.

I agree about Tony Benn, he talked a lot of sense and made some good points.

Of course Michael Morre takes extremes, but its hard to arguewith the cases he featured, especially the tape of Nixon. The US government really does run on fear, its astounding.

The NHS isnt perfect, but its a damn site better than HMO.

Did Fred just call the Iranian president what I thought he did?

Rob, the UK health system is in dire need of some help right now. It’s not as good as you think it is. The Australian health system is in the same position – suffering from malnutrition and neglect.

Comment by oxford dictionary

Hello … trust me, I know the British health service is in decline, it’s in serious, serious decline. When I said I get angry at people who slag it off, I meant when they say the system is crap – because despite it being in bad health, it performs an amazing job well above the call of duty and with investment, I believe it could truly put the GREAT back into Britain.

What the NHS did for my Dad was astounding and I will always support them and pay high taxes if it keeps things moving and improving …

Comment by Rob

Oh and John, Fred can’t reply to your question as he’s currently dead. Bit like Andy is after he dropped you in it with George, ha!

And while we’re on the subject, I can’t find a dentist for love nor money.

Comment by NP

As I said, its not perfect. Its still mostly a damn site better than when the Tories left power. Dentists are the exception, I’m pretty lucky to have a decent private dentist nearby that I can afford.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

My Mum can’t find a dentist either … it won’t be long before the cliche of the Brits having bad teeth becomes true!

I bet Bush is behind it. Somehow. Haha!

Comment by Rob

If it was America I bet I wouldnt be allowed to claim on my insurance because one time I forgot to brush when I was drunk…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

i have a new tooth growing! i need a dentist too…

I’m quite familiar with Hun Sen and to be fair he picked up where the carnage left off (sponsored by the Vietnamese in fact). His views on homosexuality are way down the list of dark stuff we probably don’t want to know about him.
