    WBC was also quick to confirm that its members have indeed been to Iraq before:

    Ironically, @adamhillscomedy, we have picketed in Iraq before. Google it. #toldya cc: @TheLastLeg @kiis1065

    Hills has since tweeted this, making us wait till tomorrow to see where this is going to go.

    So @WBCSays want us to fly them to Iraq. I'll give my reply tomorrow night on @TheLastLeg 10pm Channel 4.
