I entirely agree with you outlier. British politics is currently having something of a meltdown, with members of our national parliament, the Scottish and the Welsh devolved assemblies all facing accusations of abusing their positions to commit sexual assaults (up to and including rape) on female staff members, party workers and journalists. It is suggestive of an astonishing degree of arrogance and application of the ancient principle of droit de signeur ('Lord's right', by which aristocrats assumed the right to take whatever liberties they chose with the peasants who fell within their power) among our (male) elected representatives. The government's defence minister resigned over it, saying he recognised his behaviour had been "unacceptable" - however, the incident in question occurred in 2003, so it seems it took him 14 years, and the threat of exposure, to come to that realisation.

My personal opinion is that none of what we think of as wild animals should be killed, or farmed, to be used for so-called blood sports, to have any part of its body turned into clothing, a fashion accessory or an alleged work of art, or because of ancient or superstitious beliefs that part of its body have mythical medicinal purposes or supposedly increase male virility.

Okay, apparently there's a Christmas song called A Virgin Unpotted which the Sister and Axl could have a crack at (a virgin might be spotted at the start of it, but by the end... ) Or maybe Axl could introduce her to his Little Donkey.

For Marie and Joan though, I think the only possible choice has to be Ms Osmond's magnum opus Paper Woses.

Zimbabwe was already close to the bottom of my list of desirable residencies, but it's dropped a little lower this week.

You will never meet a poor drug company executive, and it's simply human nature that they offer medical practitioners, let's say incentives, to promote their products. I'm down to 14 pills a day now of nine different varieties (not including my self-prescribed multivitamins), an I thank heaven for the British National health Service having saved me tens of thousands of pounds for all my prescribed medication over the years. A fine example, if a rare one, of socialist principles in action. I do trust my doctors and nurses to prescribe me the medication they genuinely believe most appropriate for my health, rather than the new experimental one they received a set of golf clubs or a weekend in Paris to promote.

Drug manufacturers, the legal ones of course, don't scare me, modern medicines work wonders, which is why much of the world now faces the huge problem of aging populations. I just wish they were genuinely working principally for the good of mankind, rather than that of their shareholders.

It's the way of the world. Across Europe and North America, much of Asia and Oceania, and parts of Africa, 20 years from now the pre-computer generations will have passed on and the everyday use of technology will be so commonplace, replacing even physical monetary systems, that those few folk who are not IT literate will be regarded as having special educational needs. Commuters will sit reading the news on their handscreen while their car drives them to work. That is, those workers who are not employed in integrated home office networks.

The following offences against the English language would be severely punished.

Beginning every sentence with the word 'So', except in those rare cases where it is appropriate.
Incorrect use of the words 'disinterested' and 'discreet' when the speaker actually means 'uninterested' and 'discrete'.
Use of the word 'cool' other than in reference to physical items which lack a degree of warmth.
The term '(S)he was like' in substitution for '(S)he said'.

If my constituency were anywhere within the territory currently occupied by the USA, teaching of the correct spelling and pronunciation of certain English words would also be mandatory. Examples include colour, theatre, aluminium, 'nuclear' rather than 'nu-killer', and for military and police ranks, the pronunciation 'leftenant'.

I confidently expect to be a one-term president.
