Today’s story in The Sun – another exclusive from OpenWorld News – presents a dilemma of epic proportions for one of the nation’s finest institutions.
Osama Bin Laden’s daughter-in-law has become a member of forces charity The Royal British Legion.
On one hand, this is a human rights triumph. According to the RBL’s constitution anyone can join their ranks.
And by all accounts Zaina Bin Laden – previously known as Jane Felix Browne – has become a valued member of her local branch in Moulton, Cheshire.
However, there are certain to be some current servicemen and women, veterans, and their families that will have an issue with the 56-year-old’s appointment.
Many will be upset and angry. Some will be so outraged that they will cancel their own memberships.
But to deny Zaina a constitutional right they would be joining the ranks of the despots and tyrants many of their members have risked life and limb fighting.
Either way, the story has been handled in a very tasteful way by the nation’s biggest selling newspaper.
