‘GLOBAL warming is expected to wipe out a million species over the next 50 years – a quarter of the world’s animal population.

”And what have the Arabs ever done for you, Cat?”

Sadly, we will not get the chance to choose which million species are to go the way of the dodo, otherwise we would enthusiastically nominate Robert Kilroy-Silk.

Happily, however, it appears that the permatanned talkshow host is busy digging his own grave after an article in the Sunday Express attacking Arabs en masse was reported to the police for a possible breach of the Public Order Act.

In the offending (and offensive) article, Kilroy-Silk referred to Arabs as ”suicide bombers, limb-amputators and women repressors”.

”The Arab countries are not exactly shining examples of civilisation, are they?” he wrote. ”Few of them make much contribution to the welfare of the rest of the world.

”Indeed, apart from oil – which was discovered, is produced and is paid for by the West – what do they contribute?

”Can you think of anything? Anything really useful? Anything really valuable? Something we really need, could not do without?”

Before getting into a debate about civilisations, Kilroy-Silk should read up on the Persian empire, on Mesopotamia, on Babylon, on the Pharoahs of Egypt – just by way of example.

And, if so, perhaps he should ask what his ancestors were doing at a time when the Egyptians were constructing their magnificent pyramids.

Probably rubbing two sticks together to try to get fire to power their primitive sunbed.’
