    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.)

      perhaps by the same hand that was responsible for some of some of those shirts that he favoured around 2003-5.
      Perhaps there was a state sponsored textile workshop ????

      Hello,
      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!
