  1. That’s a larf! Leave the Huhne with the light switch and we’ll all end up in the Dark!

    Or we could Smash Sword’un. After all his sword sort of resembles the turbine blade behind him, and he wants to smash up the landscape with these monstrosities….

    A couple of words wandered off without permission. The line above is missing ‘call him’ — we could call him…

    Brilliant Fen, as always 😆

    “Forward, the Light Brigade!”
    Was there a man dismay’d? [Yes!]
    Not tho’ the soldier knew
    Someone had blunder’d…” [No, really?]

    “Then they rode back, but not
    Not the six hundred.”

    Ah yes, with energy bills this expensive, you won’t get much change out of six hundred (pounds) .

    Anyway, hurrah for Fenbeagle!

    Fenbeagle: I posted this at Oz’s and am copying it here so you’ll see it.
    Since I’m back here (oh god it’s *her* again), I’d like to correct Kitler who was correcting Fenbeagle: and this time I know I’m right. America certainly IS a democracy — a representative democracy, however, as against a direct one (e.g. the Greek states excepting Sparta and perhaps other minor ones at their Periclean apogee).

    Furthermore, ours is a modern Lockean liberal democracy, embodying Enlightenment principles and ideals (to the extent that those aren’t identical); at the same time, we are a republic. Canada is also a democracy but it is officially a constitutional monarchy and not a republic, obviously enough. Also, it lacks America’s more thorough-going division of powers, or separation of the legislature and the executive branches (the judicial in both countries being of course another branch and clearly separate, at least historically), because it is a parliamentary democracy and the chief executive is a member of parliament. Even though its legislature is also bi-cameral.

    Lovely, Fen! Maybe CH will lose his commission soon!

    The number of MP’s that voted for these ridiculous charges, with the Climate Change Act, is similar to the number that took part in the misguided Charge of the Light Brigade.

    Events in the Crimea caused quite a few job vacancies. I wonder….

    “Oh, what a charge they made!”

  11. Dear Fenbeagle,

    We are great fans of your work. I wonder if you would do some artwork for leaflets for our Campaign to Repeal the Climate Change Act? Please contact me if you can.
    Kind regards or

    Well our flashman does seem to have a hot foot, but not seem to want to account for it as us ordinary members of the public do

    Good for a laugh but will not do much for climate change as rain drops keep falling on climate disbelievers heads. Chill out!

    • Colleen. I promise to ‘chill out’. Although Climate is a tricky thing…. (It’s a possibilty we all will.) In the meantime we have politicians, and the usual suspects. And they will play the games they always have played. Which serves no purpose other than their own.
