Quote of the... um... Week...

Counting Cats in Zanzibar is no fan of NuLabour politicians and, in excoriating them, writes one of the finest lines to be seen on any blog, anywhere... [Emphasis mine.]
They are all scum. I am not prepared (for legal reasons) to say in public what I really want to see done to them but it would be Chinese in it’s ingenuity and Afghan in it’s brutality.

Quite, quite beautiful.

All I want to know is—does it involve cockroaches and japs-eyes...?

Indeed. Would it be Moronic in its misuse of punctuation?

Have never been here before, but would be interested to know how the values of the Libertarian Party are going down with the UK public. Or is canvassing beneath you?

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.

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 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.
