Dictator style…

I don’t know if you, like us at Ben P towers, find events in the Middle East a little hard to keep up with. Talk about shifting sands.

There is much anguish about Blair’s meeting with Colonel Gaddafi. But so far I haven’t seen any column inches devoted to the extraordinary tent in which they embraced. I am glad to see change in Libya. Let us pray for the best replacement. But am I the only person in the world who has noticed this textile? I would like to know more.

Your comments please (for assistance you may refer to Peter York’s superb if bizarre book published in 2005, Dictator Style.)

There’s a great article on Vanity Fair’s website about Muhamar as a fashion icon, but nothing about his talent as a decorator!
Thank you for your wonderful blog!
