Just not cricket

I bet Robert Mugabe nearly choked on his Shreddies when he heard that Jack Straw and Tessa Jowell want to prevent Zimbabwe from playing international Cricket.

If he can sleep easily having displaced thousands of Zimbabweans, I'm sure he will survive such a ludicrous threat. He is made of sterner stuff.

Stop them playing cricket and let their people starve. Good one. To paraphrase Queen Victoria - 'Let them eat willow'.

We should threaten to send Peter Hain down there. After a couple of hours of him, they'd soon fall into line.

Even if all the major cricket playing countries refuse to pay in Zimbabwe his big supporter and cricketing sleeping giant China would be happy to play a test series!!!!

Imagine the sell out crowds for that one.

.....cricketing sleeping giant China....

Thats not a bad idea. Get the Chinese playing cricket. Good old cultural imperialism. It'll teach them a thing or two about fair play. (until they play the scoundrels from down under that is)

Threatening to play cricket more often would be far worse.
