    Thanks poggle. I wasn’t able to get to London, sadly, which I very much regret but the RAF obviously felt sorry for me and diverted the three Spitfires and two Hurricanes from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight to Southampton, where they flew ...

    Hello Daedalus, I hope you saw the big RAF fly past in London today, and that you enjoyed it. I am thinking it might have been designed just for you. Roger and out.

    "...a book which contains it but does nothing in any way to frame it as bigotry, but rather just as the natural way of things, is tacitly condoning it. It doesn't matter whether the writer meant for it to. It does." Yes. This.

    In her Spectator article - "Thus from now until 2025, literary excellence will be secondary to ticking all those ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual preference and crap-education boxes. We can safely infer from that email that if an agent submits ...

    I don't think evil people ever had a problem expressing what they think. That seems to be less and less of a problem for them. I'm rarely the target of any of it, and I certainly wouldn't like to be. Personally I think Lionel Shriver is creating a ...

    Daeds, that's a brilliant comp entry - the way the indoctrinated mind justifies anything in front of it so that it fits the internal programming. A great story and a lot in such a short space.

    Facetious as well as unreliable, and I love the imagery the description of the painting conjures up, shades of Dorian Gray, The Fall of the Rebel Angels and the super scary Night on Bald Mountain segment from Fantasia, which in turn reminded me of Maleficent's minions tormenting the Prince in Sleeping Beauty ^.^
