Salmon Rushdie ?

I don't give a flying fuck. I read 'Midnights Children' and quite liked it, but that was in 1984 when I was pretending I was some sort of intellectual and was into JP Sartre. All the other books by Rushdie I have tried to read I didn't like. So come along Ally Al-Hwank, the Pakistani Minister of Inciting Hatred, do your worst to the fish-faced git. I won't care.
But don't get defiling the Queen, for that Pakistan should be expelled from the commonwealth.
