More substantial postings to follow in a bit, but could I make a plea: can we please put Bremner, Bird and Fortune out of my misery? Bremner himself has not been funny for about a decade (and his current imitation of Boris is particularly shit) but, worst of all, he now seems to have leeched all of the comedy from the two Johns too.

Bremner, Bird and Fortune: it's fucking shit.

in the "admiral" sketch between the two Johns a substantial factual error was inserted. The Harrier aircraft does not have a range of 400 miles. There are variants with a range of 1,200 miles to over 2,000 miles.

BAE Harrier II - range 2,015 miles. The GR9 variant entered service in 2006.

I know! Now that Tony is on a mission of world piss there really is a dwindling amount of polititians he is able to impersonate.

Something to consider:

Maybe politics is more worthy of crying about as opposed to laughing?

My wife tired of Bremner, Bird and Fortune about two years ago. I kept watching but more out of habit than with any great enthusiasm. Now I watch about ten minutes of each show and wonder why I bother. The show is just not funny enough to dedicate an hour of my Sunday night to.

BBF sometimes hits it in their discussions (similar to the Admiral sketch, but not really this one) but miss more often than not.

"Maybe It's because I'm a Blunderer" as not too bad a gag in itself, but what about doing one for Gordon

"Maybe It's because I'm a Treasoner"...

That would have more of a hit. How come these blokes did not just come out with it?

No. They failed.

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
