This just in: British Armed Forces are now employing 'liberated' (please note the sarcastic inflection) Iraqi civilians in the port of Umm Qasr to help unload much needed Humanitarian Aid packages from HMS Sir Gallahad the Chased-by-sea-mines.
For their efforts the Iraqi civilians are each earning sixty pence a day.
"I know that sounds a bit on the tight fisted side," commented Major Smythe Polyp of the Queen's Own Punjab Wog and Slave regiment. "But it's still a considerable improvement on the wages they'd be getting at MacDonalds."
