Yes, I know, that is all gone with the wind, but it doesn’t stop me from missing it and wanting it to come back. We can start with a return to good manners. And speaking of bad ones, how did you like Alastair Campbell, who shamelessly promoted the Big Lie for the Iraq War, being photographed making hand signals by the media? There is not a sign of regret over the hundreds of thousands of dead and misplaced persons in the aftermath of that war by those who engineered it. It’s just as bad in America, where neocons like the Frums, Kristols, and Kagans of this world are now enjoying another prelude to war, this time with the Saudis and Israelis against the Iranians. Their crimes against humanity, their illegal and unethical plotting to get Uncle Sam involved, have gone unpunished. So what else is new?

The sainted editor didn’t think it was as bad as I make it out to be in his column last Friday in The Telegraph, but I do believe there is a secret plan to foil Brexit by Madame May and her fellow Remainers in the cabinet. Just imagine if Neville Chamberlain and Lord Halifax had a secret scheme to pursue a much softer policy toward Hitler, and pursued it to the hilt. They’d be called traitors and either executed or jailed for life. If Theresa May succeeds, she’ll be considered a great prime minister. She has given in to the dictatorship that is the E.U. and is using stealth to hide it from the 17 million-plus who voted for freedom and independence. The Chequers papers are like that white sheet poor Neville waved after Munich. The establishment elites are going to have their way, and the poor schmucks who voted to get out are going back to the pub. Such are the ways of the world. In the meantime, my daughter the countess has found happiness in a very happy place. I am torn between London and the Bagel. As a certain Nigel Dempster used to say, watch this space.
