That's the question I've been burning to ask. The answer? The Foreign Office and their lackeys wouldn’t have dared. And if they had, would they be in hiding now?
Christopher Meyer writing for The Daily Mail invites us to ‘imagine the furore if the Foreign Office has insulted the Prophet Mohammed’, and gives us a new perception; ‘to get some perspective on this: imagine the furore if the jokes had been about the Prophet Mohammed before the visit of an Islamic leader. Don't forget that all hell was let loose, including death threats, when a Danish newspaper caricatured the Prophet a few years ago.’http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1269015/Pope-condom-memo-Imagine-FO-insulted-Prophet-Mohammed.html
