It's madness, I tell 'ee!

Many of us feel that—whilst science may be able to achieve almost anything, given the fullness of time—there are just some things that these Frankenstein loonies should never attempt.
If someone were to produce a mash-up of [Maureen] Dowd and Polly Toynbee, leavened with a dollop of George Monbiot we might have the world's most compellingly-appalling columnist.

For the love of all that's unholy, just say, "no! For fuck's sake, no!"

One to frighten the childer with.

To make "it" even more shudderingly awful you could always add a dollop of genial unpopular Denis McShane and a leavening of ungenial unpopular McBroon (with apologies to Peter Simple).

Don't forget the "wit" of Charlie Brooker.

I think this is a great idea, it would save time if there's only one fuckwitted column to read/fisk every week.

But to make it really awful, you have to bung in elements of Daily Express, which I happened to read yesterday, my god, that newspaper is full of shit. All hail the hallowed greenbelt! There is a link between cannabis and mental illness! Reducing time limit for abortions will save lives! Old age pensions should be as generous as in other European countries! Welfare payments should be time-limited!

Sounds like a pretty good tack to take, tbh...

"Welfare payments should be time-limited!"

Can't disagree with that one either...

Apologia

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.

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