FMFT reminds us about Trafalgar, tomorrow.


David Davis

There are of course planty of accounts of the action, but as I was going to do a piece tomorrow anyway I will just flag up Free Market Fairy Tales now.

The astonishingly wicked and deluded dreams of Napoleon remind us, eternally, of the barbarian wishes of land-locked powers to subjugate, regulate and “codify”. I was taught that “Napoleon improved and codified the laws”…this was supposed to be good – it did sound so and got me 100% in history exams, but now we know what that means. It’s the opposite of Common Law.
