Now really disappointed that I didn't know of the existence of John Redwood's book when I wrote my own. Check out this nugget. And the artwork is both bizarre and deeply offensive. It's a full hand of Ladybird libertarianism.
Might have to send him a copy
The "spirit of the British people" as a line of defence. Utter garbage
And as @Poles72 points out... the price...

Times reporting that a prominent MP received a complaint from a Tory donor who was asked to foot the bill for Boris Johnson's son's nanny. The reply:

"I resent being asked to pay to literally wipe the prime minister’s baby’s bottom."…
Boris Johnson was one of the highest paid journalists in Fleet Street. His salary at The Telegraph in 2018 was a reportedly £275,000 a year on top of his other salaries and earnings. In 2019 he was earning over £800,000 a year.
More than anything why does Boris Johnson think other people should pay for his childcare and profligate lifestyle?

I was a child but I have a very clear memory of a John Wayne film being cut short as they went live to the Iranian Embassy and thanks to this tweet I know now that it was Chisum (1970)
This being the incredible world of the internet someone else has the same memory…
How, when the aged are reverently, passionately waiting
For the miraculous birth, there always must be
Children who did not specially want it to happen, skating
On a pond at the edge of the wood:
They never forgot
That even the dreadful martyrdom must run its course...

When Dominic Cummings first went to Oxford, he tried to impress his peers by rescuing a squirrel that was trapped in a bin on a day trip at Alton Towers. The attempt failed and the squirrel subsequently attacked him as he ran away pursued by it. These things can haunt a man.
In many respects, it set the pattern for his life.

That curious assumption - repeated here by Max Hastings in the S. Times - that the only alternative to monarchy, would be a President Blair, Branson, Johnson or Piers Morgan.... like they're the only options. Image
If you talk about the idea of a republic... that's the standard response. It's the monarchy equivalent of "project fear" - a means of shutting down debate. All sorts of alternatives available and it doesn't have to be a household name or former breakfast tv presenter
Also - there'd be nothing to stop a member of the Royal Family standing or even being among the options available would there.

Only 4 of these people have children at school. Several don't have children at all. None of them have ever taught. And it's not going to be mandatory to wear a mask in schools anyway.

Still I suppose we all need to fill the empty days.
When even Lozza Fox won't sign
