Everytime I think to myself, "you can't say that, it's too right wing and reactionary" and then post something anyway, my stats soar and I get more people following the blog.
This may sound a bit craven and a bit crass, but I am not sure if it is me that has gone further and further to the right of the political spectrum, or merely that the climate of opinion in this country has become so nihilistic and politically correct that any sane person would seem right wing against that background.
And policemen seem younger. And so does Santa Claus.
PS. Both the Times and the Telegraph are leading with Ashcroft. As if there are not more important and relevant stories to address. Is it me, or have you noticed that the press is becoming more and more transparent about its allegiance, the nearer we get to an election?
