45. There were hard feelings about that, and also the fact that

some of the IRA bombings in UK involved explosives that were procured via Libya. Many hard feelings--the UK coverage of Qaddaffi's demise was closer to "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" because a lot of people had a personal and visceral dislike of the man.

Gaddafi death hailed by David Cameron

The Sun with their "usual restraint" called the guy a dead dog (disturbing images) :

The injury that killed him was rather gruesome (fair warning--very disturbing image): http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/395224/20121017/gaddafi-killed-bayonet-stab-anus-libya.htm
