Quote:I think Mrs Thatcher did more damage to democracy, equality, internationalism, civil liberties, freedom in this country than any other prime minister this century. When the euphoria surrounding her departure subsides you will find that in a year or two's time there will not be a Tory who admits ever supporting her. People in the street will say thank God she's gone.

......yeah, but she wouldn't be putting up with all the liberal rubbish (Communism) that Angela Merkel and the EU are throwing at us. Tony Benn never reckoned on migration!

I apologise for the digression!

Quote:Our country has been so enriched by immigration. My mother was a Scot – my wife was an American of French extraction. One son married a Muslim. Another’s married someone of Jewish and Indian extraction. I mean I’m breeding a UN peace keeping force in my family

Quote:Fun comes in many forms. I remember the day the race visited Lourdes not for the religious or spiritual feelings it generated but for the sheer amount of flashing, sparkling, plastic crap being punted to the tourists. I was so touched I felt obliged to buy a bottle opener in the image of the baby Jesus and then much to my dismay lost in the next hotel when I used it on a cider I'd shamelessly appropriated from some local producers that morning. Of course I had a bad head the following day but I can't be certain if it was the alcohol or the after effects of sleeping in amongst all the neon signs promising salvation and miracle cures.

Oh no?

Quote:When I was one, I was dropped on the porch. When I was two, I had pneumonia. When I was three, I got the chicken pox. When I was four, I fell down the stairs and broke six ribs. When I was five, my uncle was decapitated by a watermelon. When I was six, my parents hit me in the head with a shovel. When I was seven, I lost my index finger to my pet rat. When I was eight, my dog Spike got hit by a tractor.

When I was nine, my mother lost her arm to a rabid Brahmin. When I was ten, my sister was torn to bits by a pack of dogs. When I was eleven, my grandfather killed himself because I was ugly. When I was twelve, my grandmother killed herself because I was ugly. When I was thirteen, my father poked out his eyes with a pitchfork in a drunken stupor.

When I was fourteen, my brother lost his hand to a wallaby. When I was fifteen, my aunt choked to death on a chicken bone. When I was sixteen, I lost my cousin to a badger. When I was seventeen, I cut off my left big toe with a hoe. When I was eighteen, my father lost his right leg to the same tractor that killed my dog. When I was nineteen...

Quote:The dawn of time. The beginning of all beginnings. Two forces, only good and evil. Then chaos. Time is born, matter, space. The universe cries out like a newborn. The forces shatter as the universe explodes outwards. Only echoes remain, and yet somehow, somehow, the evil force survives. An intelligence. Pure evil.
