Colonel Despo, spokesman for the military junta which controls the People's Democratic Republic of North Bongostana, said "The weak, decadent government of Britain is getting it all wrong, particularly with their international media image."
"A brutal and ruthless armed militia which openly shoots badgers and their young families in the street creates a realy bad image, and invites accusations of genocide" he asserted. "The smart thing to do is for officers to arrive in the small hours, under cover of darkness, and quietly spirit the badgers away to secret interrogation centres for 'questioning'."
"Any badgers survive should be put to work in slave labour camps or simply be allowed to 'disappear'. This has worked well for us; we've been getting away with it for decades."
