Britain’s Elder Statesman

In A Proud And Honourable Tradition

William Hague is a British politician we can be proud of.  I agree with almost every word he says.  The only subject on which we diverge is Trident.  I see no point at all in this massively expensive white elephant.  Everything that can be achieved by possessing a nuclear weapon is achieved by just one warhead capable of use on a variety of delivery methods.  Our generals don’t want Trident.  We should listen to their advice.

Hague’s time as PM was an unhappy one and it is true that his judgment can be a little wobbly at times but only on trivial matters such as dress code.  His presence, intelligence and dignity endow him with a magnificent stature that commands not just the conference platform but the world stage.  He makes Labour politcians look either like spiteful, spotty schoolboys or grumpy old codgers with dinosaur attitudes and medieval manners.

He is the perfect foil to David Cameron.  Truly, this is a wonderful partnership which will enable Britain to regain its place as a world leader.

Jessica Ennis – Our Golden Girl

Heading For Glory

What a wonderful performance in Barcelona.  Jessica is a delight in every way, a  formidable lady of determination, strength and courage.  She is so tiny yet so huge in spirit and presence.   She will be the star of London 2012.

And a spectacular performance by the whole British athletics team.  Perhaps, for once, we have got our timing right.  It looks like we’re heading for the most fantastic celebration in London 2012.
