How bad does Nick have to get before the Observer fires him?

All this Decency-watching gets a bit superfluous when papers provide comments boxes and the possibility of instant correction. So it is with a hat-tip to "Damo 70" that I record the following. Nick Cohen:

you will search Cafod's website in vain for condemnations of Zimbabwe, Sudan or any other state that responds to criticism by silencing its critics.

The Cafod website on Zimbabwe:

Zimbabwe’s Government stands accused of oppressing opposing voices, and harming the judiciary and media. There is evidence of a significant number of abuses of basic human rights, widespread corruption, and little respect for senior politicians.

On the Cafod site, Pastoral Letter by the Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops' Conference on the "Current Crisis of Our Country".

I'll pass on saying anything witty or cutting. The man's a turd.
