You know how to make a silly Brit concentrate on the rends in his clothing?

Steve-

I can't remember. It was three sections I think. Ellpus was mentioned at the bottom of section 2 comes to mind. It was bitter. And it was someone who knew about A2K. I thought from it then, on one read, what we all seem now to be starting to think.

That's why I made no comment. There wasn't a shred of literary skill in it and all the more powerful for it. I've seen stuff like that before.

You half articulated the same thing and I sat back to see what developed.

A rather large example of a development then ensued and, being a good scientist, I sought a cause for this odd effect which made sense.

It could be a cyber fiction I suppose. A romantic runaway stunt in fantasy leaving a swirling mass of rumour and innuendo behind which could be gloated over from the usual chaste surroundings.

But I don't think so. That poem was the real thing. You can't make them up no matter how good you are. You can get past Agony Aunts easy with pale imitations.

In that case fm I could get a Yank to concentrate on finding his longest scrotal hair.


Hey- ITV have pulled the plug on the Interactive/Premium Phone Line programmes.

About time too. Fancy showing thieves working for all that time on national TV where law officers could see it and nobody doing anything about it. They had Mock Auctions as well and they were banned years ago.

3-1 I gather. Isn't it exciting? 22 sandwich-board men running around a field as fast as their little legs will carry them.

Matthew Arnold, a famous man of sport and English letters, wrote, in an ancient essay entitled "Literary Influence of Academies" and speaking, so he claimed, for "all of us (who) like to go our own way", in a male chauvinist world of course-

Quote:
We like to be suffered to lie comfortably in the old straw of our habits, especially our intellectual habits, even though this straw may not be very clean and fine".


He specialised in showing it in the best possible light.

And therefore, the locking of Brit 1 was a bit of a jolt.

wande's explanation was somewhat derogatory of jespah's capacities I felt. It was backed up by an assertion the truth of which we are hardly likely to check out. There could well have been a very good reason to lock Marlboro threads. A title like that would naturally attract roughnecks who don't mince their words.

It hints that wande thinks that jespah was brought up pulling the wings off butterflies and daddylonglegs.

It is possible that jespah might not have liked me censuring Steve for not sternly wagging a finger at the lad who was kissing a girl in public.

jespah might be an intellectual who fully understands the import of that short jest.

Evidence for that ?

No1- jespah manages, I'll say, a media outlet and it is the sacred duty of a lady who does that to be the spokesperson of womanhood.

No2- Lads kissing girls in public are in the ****.

No3- The intellectual objective of womanhood is to drop men in the ****.

It's simple. It only doesn't add up if underestimating jespah is a wise move. Which I doubt.

No4- The remark I made demonstrates that I represent the poor, helpless victims who Bill Greenwell immortalised in his famous line-

"The last rasping gasp of the mantis's groom".

(Cut to Mac chopping trees down).

No5-It is unlikely that jespah is a fish gutter. It is much more likely that she's media savvy. Possibly really savvy. There are some hot-shots in them there parts which are 8 hours behind. She is running an international cyber pub and a woman running a pub consists of 50% of the composition of the "perfect woman". Being loaded being a mere trifle.

No6- This is not the first time a thread I take some interest in has been locked. I am a founder member of the most exclusive club in the world. It only has 7 members and I don't know who the others are.

No7- Anybody who thinks that jespah is not an intellectual of the highest water is running the risk that the sap kissing in public was running, probably still is, they never learn, and if she isn't what difference does it make?

I could talk my way out of that easy.

So. Where does that leave us?

Just wait till Mathos comes back from his machismo display in the torrid zones with tales of crocodiles biting his swimming trunks. He is blissfully unaware that Tarzan had no trunks on when he swam across the river frantically.

Well here's a fine to-do.

Spendy's flipped his lid, and no Smorgs present to moderate the proceedings.

Spendy, do you need to increase the medication?

Morning all.

In the previous thread, McTag was surprised that Yorkshire was so high ranked re wealth.

Why is Yorkshire so wealthy? is answered in today's Guardian.
(Because of bakeries and, well, prudence.)

Morning McT. Good morning Spendius, if it is morning wherever you are.

Just reading the list of current injunctions the Attorney General has slapped on the media, to prevent the public knowing..."in the public interest". Who gives a damn anyway about buying a peerage...they should publish a price list.

Interesting programme on tonight Michael Cockerel? on Tony Blair. Heard him on the radio this morning, he said it had elements of a Greek tragedy. (What does that mean....Spendy?)

In the programme he asks John Prescott what he thought of G W Bush.

Prescott - (long pause, quietly) not much.

Oh, I'm here alright...

I have been away because I was moving house, I also have no internet connection and this is my first day back at work.

You all know me, some of you know me personally. I knew that 'poem' would elicit gossip, and I must admit I was quite surprised at how discrete you all were (especially you, spends).

Shall I return with a pile of stones for you to lob at me?

I am trying to be discrete myself here (for the sake of another member) but you are all mature people and you should know that situations are seldom as they seem.

I asked for the poem to be removed as it was causing harm, and it was an attack (without evidence) on myself and another member. I did not ask for the thread to be locked.

You should not be so quick to judge others (lest ye be).

Ah, welcome back, your smorginess.

You are always discrete, and sometimes discreet. :wink:

I'm sitting here wasting time because it is bloody cold & windy outside.
But I've got some inside jobs to do too.

So

They should auction peerages etc.

I read something recently about the return to private life after long habituation to extreme control freakery (a form of sadism) and the trappings of pomp ( a form of sadism) and about the addictive nature of habit itself. I can't remember where. Naked Lunch maybe.

It is already a tragedy. A Greek tragedy generally, to keep it simple, requires the hero to suffer through no fault of his own but through the agency of the grinding forces of existence in which toils he becomes entangled in the cause of virtue. I hardly think that applies to this case.
The man is a severe power junkie by choice in pursuit of a vice and the cold turkey will be tough to take. Mrs Thatcher needed a "Foundation" to help her through it which is a bit like the methadone treatment for heroin.

We might not care about the sales drive itself but perversions of the course of justice is on a whole other level.

Mr Prescott's remark is ambiguous.
