What, may I ask, did the word 'led' ever do to you?

Salute the uniform, not the officer wearing it.

This is a principal argument in favour of hereditary monarchy: that competence or lack of it is explicitly excluded from the job description.

Fair point. It would piss him off big time to tell him. Much better let it go.

Australia is not the largest island. It's the smallest continent. Can you imagine the pussy grabber wanting the smallest anything?

Is this for real? Britain's government is sounding like a soap opera. (Of course America's is a reality show but that's beside the point.)

It's real all right. We don't do statesmanship or statesmen any more (let alone stateswomen), just bigoted empty-headed busybody party activists.

So when are you going to collect payment on this soul-less zombie, Beez? It can't be soon enough. Can he share a room with Epstein?

Don't confuse Beelzebub with Beelzebuddy (his buddy), who is like the chap in the old gangster films standing at the elbow of an obnoxious over-entitled gentleman with a cigar, saying to him "Shall I give him de woiks, Boss?", Though on second thoughts it might be the henchperson doing the actual collecting.

I thought "flauted" was describing something with an error like "The U.S. political system is clearly flauted in that it allowed the election of Donald Trump." (LFC does his best to dodge the well deserved backhand coming his way.)

I'm struggling and failing to keep up. I'll leave the last word to you.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Purdue to an audience of farmers while they take it in the stomach from the trade war with China:

“What do you call two farmers in a basement? A whine cellar.”

It isn't just the toxic behaviour of the Administration. It's the shrivelled, squalid little souls that comprise it. Where do they look to find such creatures? I'll trot out my G K Chesterton quote again (Mr Justice Basil Grant, in The Club of Queer Trades): "Get yourself another soul. That thing you've got isn't fit for a dog".

Huh. I always thought "flouted" meant arranging a musical piece for a certain category of woodwind instrument.

That's flauted. The musical instrument is a flaut. It's played by a flautist.

Well, c'mon, we've had slavery, a civil war, and numerous examples of the constitution being flaunted. Either the excesses get reigned in or they don't. Remember, the arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward entropy.

Andrew Rawnsley in the Guardian. A precise technical description of the constitutional crisis the UK is in.

Quote

The requirement that an election must be called by a government that has lost a confidence vote was “a firm convention” rather than solid legislation, as are the understandings that a government won’t unreasonably delay an election and will not do anything contentious once a campaign is under way. When people refer to the British constitution, they are talking about a hotch-potch of such conventions, combined with ancient charters, precedents, international agreements, legislative bolt-ons and unwritten understandings. The fabric of this messy tapestry is held together by a crucial thread. That is an underlying assumption that everyone can be trusted to behave in a proper way. In the absence of a formal constitution, British democracy is heavily reliant on politicians acting with honour and playing fair.

The irruption of the pussy grabber has revealed that the US Constitution is a bit more like that than you thought, no? Not just the PGOTUS, but the Turtle as well! And the Supremes, methinks.
