Off Topic
Someone has been listening to the wit and wisdom of J R Sussex because a programme of this very name is on Radio 4 at 8-oo PM on Saturday. I shall listen
On the subject of England my view is that when Britain meant something it meant Greater England and now it is little more than a set of entitlements . I do not favour an English Parliament to solve the West Lothian question but I welcome English laws. Toque is big on this stuff
ON TOPIC and apols to Brixton Belle -I love living near the site of the Norman Conquest ,you can read a book to your children and then point out of the window at the real thing .It can be a magical place to live Lewes and DFL though I may be I suspect love it as much as anyone and perhaps appreciate it more..ooer bit contraversial

Would like to think the radio 4 programme is to do with me but no, certainly not as far as I am aware. I will listen in however, if it is interesting.

Disraeli as the Times put it saw the Conservative voter in the working man just as the sculptor sees "the angel in the marble". That popped into my mind.
I think I may have read that one Jude although I couldn`t swear to it

'I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.' (Michelangelo Buonarroti ) , that was the original source of the quote which the Times used to describe 'One Nation Conservatism' presumably in about 1868 ie the time of the Reform Act.

The only good thing about Scottish law at present is you are exempt from paying to go into a nursing home, now that is civilised (not that it will affect me for many moons to come ha ha) oh, and I love a good Haggis, visit Boisdale for the best my friends. Cheers, Peter
