The eye of the beholder...

Friday night: Before things went weird, believe it or not. FEAR MY BEAUTY!

Here's Mr Angry complaining about crap tramps. No, really, he is: I'm just quoting a bit of it in order to dovetail into something else entirely.
There was lady at the next table dining alone, and she kept looking at me. This is not unusual. It is a cross that I have learned to bear with little complaint. If looking at me helps women get through the day, then so be it. It is nice to know I can do my bit for the happiness of the world just by looking pretty.

I can sympathise, Angry, really I can.

On a related note, Dr Crippen is taking nominations for beautiful bloggers*. Your humble Devil is in the running. Netch'relly.

See what I did there?

UPDATE: your humble Devil came fourth, under a given name of Mr Debonnaire...

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.
