    No, no comment required – but might I be permitted a “Ha ha!”

    (Also – the sheer ineptitude of it. How can anyone be blind to such bitter ironies. I mean, I understand hapless textual slip-ups of the kind they read out at the end of The News Quiz. But this – some numpty had to knock them both into the ground. Other numpties, presumably with privileged access, go by every day. Asses!)

  3. Maybe it just means that people ruin democracy when they enter it; it usually does better without them, on a purely idealistic level.

    I’m sure that the irony was both understood and revelled in.
    “The impotent revenges of the impotent” as somebody once put it (no doubt if I google that I’ll regret writing it).
