Kurdistan, not Northern Iraq

Kurdo comments today on the first sitting of the Iraqi Parliament where one MP apparently referred to the Kurdish region of Iraq as the “North”.

Major Faux-pas!

Some of the 77 MPs from Kurdistan were insulted. They shouted “Kurdistan, Kurdistan. What North”. The old man said “Sorry, Kurdistan”.

Oops. Oh well.. at least all they did was shout! No worse than the Bloc Quebecois getting uppidity when someone refers to Quebec as French Canada. If the worst they do is correct them then I’d say that’s a win for democratic institutions.

Welcome, Iraq, to the Democratic world!
