....and it's from one of our top suppliers:

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has told the congregation at Canterbury Cathedral the resurrection means that no one is forgotten by God.


Speaking on the tenth anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda that left 800,000 people dead, he said the world must not stand by while tragedy takes place.

"It is not that we wielded the weapons; but the nations of the world stood by in indecision and distractedness while the slaughter went on.

"Some lives, it seems, are still forgettable; some deaths still obliterate memory for those of us at a distance," he said.

Unless the slaughter occurs in a country with a four letter name, or a leader whose initials are the same as the Southhampton Hilton or there's quite a lot of sand there, in which case all bets are off. His Majesty's Imperial Toturer has more on what Beardy doesn't think constitutes reason to intervene.
