Mad bastard market trader, Johnny O'Hat today expressed his utter disbelief that Muslim communities around the world should take exception to a few copies of the Koran being burned in public by a madcap Florida Pastor.
O'Hat complained that Muslim communities for years have burned effigies of US Presidents and British Prime Ministers, every time they get a bee in their collective bonnets.
He went on to insist that bargain bin copies of Islamic texts were cheaper to purchase, and thus to burn, than flags - which usually work out at about fifteen quid a pop.
"It just doesn't make sound economic sense," a merchant banker from Ealing told us. "In financial terms, the Muslim protesters would actually be quids in burning copies of the Koran than they would be burning flags and effigies of political leaders."
Captain Mainwaring of Walmington on sea told us that like his good friend, Corporal Jones, he remains convinced that these extremist types:
"Don't like it up 'em!"
"Wha-heyyy!" he announced, in a very undignified way for a bank manager.
More as we get it.
