Celebrate



Great letter in the Daily Telegraph:

SIR – Moments of national celebration, such as the monarch’s coronation or jubilee, are often commemorated in the names of British hotels and inns
With this tradition in mind, I am most impressed by the foresight shown by the owners of the “Brown Leaves Country Hotel”, on the A59, north of Blackburn.

Ah, know it well!

We took all 178 members of the sub group advisory panel to the Quango Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Frais Gras & Chateau De Neuf Pap there for urgent discussions when the scare regarding French glass in Champagne bottles occurred some years ago.

Love it! Let's hope we don't now get one called 'Brown's Return' anytime soon. Where are those pesky Taliban & Alky Ada when there's a worthwhile job to be done? And I hear Copenhagen is very attractive at this time of year too.

Blogger Mr Lakelander pointed this out a couple of months ago. Do try to keep up.

It would be near Ribchester Roman ruins, the ruins of Whalley Abbey, and the ruins of Clitheroe Castle. How appropriate.

I'm just off to the 'MP and Lamppost' for a swift pint and a real civilised smoke by the Global Warming coal fire.

What, nurse? A dream again? Medication, please!

Kind of you to credit me with this, but it wasn't me - it was Idle who first posted on this subject.

I am, however, grateful for the advert and Old Holborn knows he can rob artwork from my site any time he wants.

Especially the stuff that's really cruel to politicians...

Well, as a drinking buddy of Idle, all I can say is:

A rolling stone gathers no web hits

Headlines
“Brown Leaves Country Hotel without paying bill"

“Brown Leaves Country Hotel bankrupted"

“Brown Leaves Country Hotel following police raid on illegal migrant workforce..."

The absurdity of the modern British police state is admirably shown in the latest faux-pas by those geniuses at New Scotland Yard. The legality of taking a snapshot of a young twink. As I walked through London yesterday waiting for my coach at Victoria after visiting the 'outpatients 9' dept at Westminster for sexually transmitted diseases,I saw postcards for sale. Is Al Qui'da behind this plot to subvert Britain? One need not get arrested for taking a photograph of Big Ben but merely purchase a 10 pence postcard. Next "law"? It should be to ban postcards and place these dangerous folks who sell them in Belmarsh with a few Qu'ranic scholars. That ought to teach them. The U.K is not a soft touch. I will later blog in more detail about travelling from England to Ireland in order to make multiple social security claims in different names on my Indy blog, to say I had this conversation last night.
"You are a security risk", (he said to me). "Why is that?" I asked. "You admit to using two different names". (Yes of course, writing complete tripe under one and having a passport in another. I had no wish to fry his poor excuse for a brain by telling him I use more than one name when I am writing on Gay issues and claiming social security benefits).
More vindication (if it were needed) as to my sagacity. Knox found guilty. Like I said months ago this is a travesty of justice and another example of the misuse of DNA. My DNA shows that I am part red indian with a dash of Jewish negro and just a hint German traveller blood.
