Derek calls on the Gaddafi brothers in Hampstead
Well I didn't actually get to piss in their toilets, investigate the wine cellar or play on Saif's Xbox.
However it was not entirely a wasted journey.
The house in Hampstead owned by the Gadaffi's (value £7 million) was occupied on tuesday by my good amigoes the squatters.
Thursday night saw them pass it on to the Libya opposition.
Non Libyans are no longer allowed in, so I didn't get to play inside, but all well and good.
The news from Libya seems grave today but at least and its a small thing but a moral boost the Libyan people are in control of the Gadaffi home and it is effectively a London Embassy for the Libyan people.
God will victory will be there's!
