Anybody know what this place is?


David Davis

Thought it was quite droll. Used-Fast-Car-dealer Bernie Ecclestone’s current troubles merit a mention, as does the Home Secretary, “Jacqui” “Smith”‘s views on how and why men will be criminalised for paying for sex with women, but no other combination of sexes is apparently to be so victimised (see Julia Roberts pic.)

Samizdata quote of the day (yup, let’s all be horrid to Polly Toynbee, again, as is right!)


Great quote via Brian Micklethwait, on Samizdata:-

My dad was a newsagent, I went to state school, I’m Asian, I work in the city and I earn loads of money. I do it so my parents and future children can have something close to the only kind of life Toynbee has ever known. Me explain my position? How about she explains her right to speak for the poor?

Peter Hoskin singles out that comment by Raj Chande on an excerpt from Polly Toynbee and David Walker’s book entitled Unjust Rewards

AND HERE is a great aside by The Remittance Man, about socialism, Polly Toynbee, and camel trains….of all things! I wish I had either the ability, or the time, to compose essays, be they ever so short, like his.
