While queuing in Glutton’s to buy beer and pasta at half-time during the Wales-Italy game (and the first Italian try was over the dead ball line), I heard the radio say that Milosevic was the first head of state to be tried for crimes against humanity. At first I thought that wasn’t true, as Admiral Dönitz was tried at Nuremburg, but I see that Wikipedia says specifically that he was put on trial for war crimes and not for crimes against humanity, so perhaps the BBC claim is right.

Even more trivia: are the people in Viking helmets at Lansdowne Road supporters of the Scottish or the Irish? I’d guess they were Scots, but it’s not obvious. At least, not to me. And a prediction: I think the Irish are going to win this one.
