""And what is all the "scads of lovely lolly" refer to? Is it the money he made from The Satanic Verses? Well, he is the author. Is it not rightly his?""

Of course it is his by right, but are you seriously telling me that you believe he would have made twopence halfpenny if not for the very well publicised "death threat".

Scenes of Muslims dancing in the streets are two a penny, and isn't it strange that, although his whereabouts were supposed to be secret, he kept popping up here and there and nobody tried to collect on all those Houris.

British Muslim leaders at the time said that the Fatwah was a product of the fundamentalist theocracy of Iran, and that no attempt would be made to carry it out in the UK.

If you believe that it wasn't a stunt I have this nice Bridge for sale, very cheap. It goes up and down to let ships...........
