Travelling Devil

Your humble Devil is briefly back at Hell Towers the now, and I would like to offer up a big thank you to those fine, upstanding contributors who weighed in with their excellent contributions over the last few days.

I have a great deal to write about... oh, loads of stuff. Especially CRUdgate.

However, tomorrow I am peripatetic once more: this time I am travelling to Bristol for the LPUK AGM.

Back on Sunday.

UPDATE: as some of you have heard extraordinarily quickly, your humble is, indeed, the new leader of the Libertarian Party of the UK. Thank you all for your good wishes—let us see what the new year brings...

DK, did you know you are hat-tipped by the Independent this morning? One the old "booze cheaper than water" claim.

DK - make sure you have a look at this article when you're writing up thoughts on 'Climategate'.

James Higham said...

I'm following it closely.

Dick Puddlecote said...

Congrats, Leader. :-)

knirirr said...

Congrats, Leader. :-)

I just came over to say the same thing.

David Farrer said...

Congratulations!

Britain's most and least libertarian party leaders both attended Edinburgh University!

Captain Ranty said...

I wanted to add my congratulations as well, DK.

LPUK are in good hands.

CR.

indigomyth said...

Congrats leader. Ruffle a few feathers.

AndrewWS said...

Congratulations, O leader mine!

I was going to ask who's the other party leader who also attended Edinburgh, but I've just remembered it's that monocular shitbag in No 10.

Edinburgh now has a party leader it doesn't need to be embarrassed about.

AndrewWS said...

Oh, and it's another party leadership for Eton too.

david Farrer said...

"Edinburgh now has a party leader it doesn't need to be embarrassed about."

Very true.

But can he get the trams working by Christmas?

The Filthy Smoker said...

What's going on? Has DK seized power?

Martin said...

It was a (relatively) bloodless coup.

RAB said...

Bugger! Wish I'd known about this meeting earlier DK, I live a five minute walk from the Cricket ground.

Any chance I can get in on spec? fiver in hand of course, drink in the other of course.

RAB said...

Bugger again, my bad, got the dates wrong, it happened yesterday.
Well if you are ever in this neck of the woods DK, and need a bed for the night, my hospitality is world renound.

Phil said...

FFS DK....On your way to Bristol, steer clear of woods and keep an eye on other users of the road around you. Come back well on Monday and give us the gen that will plant this evil government well and truly where it should be....(but Highgate is too good for them)

Westerlyman said...

Congratulations. Does your exalted status mean we shall be reading less Devil rant? Are you going to have to tone it down now you are the leader of our party?

Anonymous said...

Congratulations, may the celebration be long and may the hangover be short!
Katabasis beat me to it because I would also recommend you read that. Also Eco-Imperialism, every Environmentalist's Dream. Plus keep on reading the other posts on that sight.
Eye opening is the word.

Cheers
Rob

Gratz!

'grats deil!

Pavlov's Cat said...

Bravo.

steveshark said...

I'm feeling really buoyed up (not in a Mandy way though) by the news.

Congratulations, DK.

caesars wife said...

Looks I am in for tin foil hat , week , CRU now promising to publish raw data (i do question the delay).

My favourite simplistic one "at school I was told CO2 is heavier so why arnt we all choking"

I still maintain pollution is a problem and it shouldnt detract from what could be an inconveient theory .Cleaner air water and soils isnt such a bad aim for a developed population , is it !

TheBigYin said...

Oh fuck DK, your one of them...a fucking politician! Ok, that said...give us some leadership!

PS: Well done in your electing as head guy, lead them well my friend.

Rumbold said...

Well done. You deserve it.

Oxbridge Prat said...

Congratulations. Any chance of a news item on the LPUK web page?

Peter said...

If there's a leader's debate at the next election, you'd better be on it.

And you better call the others a bunch of cunts.

Fucking hellski!

The Boiling Frog said...

Congratulations DK, great news, the UK Libertarian Party has a real asset in you as a leader.

AndrewWS said...

Floreat Etona!

(they're taking over ...)

Winston said...

Congrats oh devilish one! I wish you great success.

J Demetriou said...

Well done and good luck on your appointment. I wish you well.

Quick question, though. Given our blogland encounters over the last few months, do you consider me welcome in the UK Libertarian Party, or unwelcome?

I look forward to reading your reply.

Blue Eyes said...

Wow congratulations!

Congratulations on your glorious triumph oh Lord of the Sinners and Publicans.

This sinner is having a bag of chips to celebrate. I'd have gone to the pub, but it's no smoking in there.

Congrats, an awful lot of work to do. You couldn't make this shit up:

Bella mater said...

Congratulations son-in-law! Lead on for the cause!

Marius Ostrowski said...

Guaranteed LPUK vote here in that case!

woman on a raft said...

Congratulations.

Hugo said...

"your humble is, indeed, the new leader of the Libertarian Party of the UK"

Time to move on from the swearblogging, perhaps?

Devil's Kitchen said...

John D,

"Given our blogland encounters over the last few months, do you consider me welcome in the UK Libertarian Party, or unwelcome?"

You're entirely welcome in LPUK, John; whether you and I disagree is irrelevant since we are, after all, a party of libertarians.

Besides, it's hardly as though we have had a major falling out really—and I don't bear grudges.

DK

Sacerdote said...

I, for one, would like to be the first to congratulate our new libertarian overlord...oh wait. :)

Congratulations indeed DK. And don't you dare give up the swearblogging!
