the virgin/divorcee analogy is from C.S.Lewis. It's part of the same essay where he says that whenever he hears someone saying that our civilisation is reverting to paganism, he has visions of MPs leaving their sandwiches for the dryads in Hyde Park, and watching the Prime Minister sacrifice a white bull at the opening of Parliament.
Now that would be the BEST opening of Parliament ever.
I would spring for the train fare to London to see that.
It would make Cameron the king of fleet street.
