Day Dreams

Still slightly giddy from last week's politics. It's just that it's been so long since my team has won a major game.

I know someone in London who was also a member of the Bullingdon club
who told me last night that the reason he is happy that Boris and Dave are
shortly going to be running this country, is that they will absolutely for
sure bring back the fox hunt.

I LOVE this country!


Went to see Mark Steyn perform, er, speak last night here in Toronto.
Wonderful, wonderful speaker. He said but did not elaborate much on Tony
Blair defending British values abroad but not quite getting it at home. I
used to blog that Tony Blair had no authority to wage a war in defense of
western civilization in the Middle East while deconstructing it at home; no
rhetorical defense of liberty while robbing Englishmen of their right to
hunt fox. Very, very few of my readers seemed to appreciate the point but I
find it all part of a whole. One normally conservative correspondent asked
what I had against foxes; I asked what he had against fox hunters. Banning
something simply because you don't like it sounds so Islamic too me --
Taliban on the Thames was briefly my name for Blair's Labour government. --CPB

When order is restored, and Dave and Boris have put me in charge of cleaning things up in Cheshire, I've got a detailed plan to turn Liverpool into a re-education camp for southpaws, homosexuals, vegetarians and people who are sentimental about animals. One of the things they will be taught is that foxes are bad for farmers. They will be forced to attend the horses at the Tarpoley Boxing Day hunt, a few miles from here.

and "John Lennon" airport is going to be changed to the Admiral Lord Nelson airport.

and sanity will be restored.

I also got to meet The Steyn last night.

He's so *dreamy*.

Don't look now, Hilary, but The Steyn is linking to you.
