I’m told is LOLcats. Dear me. Here’s the first that comes up, including other animals too.

So, via a blog I don't link to as I want to remain family-friendly, I stumble on this from National Review. The piece is written by one Denis Boyles, who has a book entitled: Vile France: Fear, Duplicity, Cowardice and Cheese.
(Ok, maybe only I think that's funny, but it does sound like an episode of 'Allo 'Allo)
But from there we come to this piece in the Guardian by Roy Hattersly. It half makes sense, but for the rest I was in stiches. Here’s my fave bit:
I would run away and take refuge with other survivors of my species. If I were suffering from some virulent transmittable disease, I would spread it about. Being in a state of perturbation, I would not spend much time thinking about the common good.

Of course badgers are generally know for spending much time thinking. About the common good.
Hands up anyone else who thinks that large chunks of it read like Mark Steyn spoofing the root-cause-brigade?

Have I missed it, or does the current edition of the Spectator not carry one single full article on last weekend’s EU action? I mean, this is The Story. Instead we get some more stuff on Gordon Brown (as if we hadn’t had enough), which all things considered, for now is just trivial flim-flam. Given the debate about what resulted from the EU meeting (possibly the legal creation of a confederation, or maybe not), surely this should have been top priority. Sorry Speccie, not good.

Well done!

Also, read this address by Thatcher and this article from one of the more prominent veterans. And don't forget to visit here:

I'm not sure, but I seem to remember the troops are Canadian, a country whose contribution to the battle for liberty was (and is!) often overlooked.
