"It's not quite corporal punishment, but Wellington High School pupils have had a first-hand taste of Guantanamo Bay.

Three teachers and two pupils donned Guantanamo-style fatigues yesterday lunchtime, with the rest of the students asked to work out which shrouded figures were teachers and which were pupils.

Suspected terrorists and prisoners from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have been detained at the American prison opened in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2002.

The challenge had a serious human rights message, said Richard Brown, 17, of the school's Amnesty International group, which organised the event..."

Yet again, it's the oh-so-evil west in the gun.

How about a bit of balance and give the bleeding hearts a taste of life in a muslim prison- or a prison of one of those beloved South American bastions of liberty that the young and naive seem to love (they keep buying the T-shirts)?

No- couldn't do that, could you? Connecting drippy sixth-formers reproductive organs to the mains would land you in jail, even if it did benefit the human gene pool.
