This BBC report is just too funny — or depressing, I can’t decide which:

Downing Street has defended an intelligence dossier of evidence against Iraq after allegations that it included plagiarised material that was 12 years out of date.

…Dr Rangwala, lecturer in politics at Cambridge University, told the programme that the British Government’s dossier was 19 pages long, but most of pages 6 to 16 were copied directly from the student’s document word for word.

“Even the grammatical errors and typographical mistakes,” he said.
