There was needed a feckless Democrat for that — “. . . in which he predicted that 2003 would go down in history as the year of “the destruction of the greatest treasure from the oldest age of Western civilisation, the greatest heritage catastrophe since the Second World War.” Rummy was right: it was the same vase, 170,000 times over – Telegraph

That was the upshot of Simon Jenkins’s column in The Times, in which he predicted that 2003 would go down in history as the year of “the destruction of the greatest treasure from the oldest age of Western civilisation, the greatest heritage catastrophe since the Second World War. We who claim to crusade for civilised values could not summon one tank to defend their earliest repository.” Etc, etc.
