Your unrelenting dislike of the bourgeoisie is always cheering.

It is absolutely true what was said in the article, the oligarchy of this country is all but gone. Though I am no fan of GW's it is for reasons which are entirely my own. Thanks

Peace,

D'you know, I don't really think I do dislike the bourgeoisie -

- Whomever they are in these thin and piping times. I expect that I may be too much a Thatcherite to do: I admire the traditional middle-class (and, so far as there is one, 'lower'-class) values of thrift and work, and, like Kipling, am acutely aware of the romance of commerce.

It's all very complex, of course.

Perhaps its your disdain for the quotidian notions, morality and binary thinking of the petite bourgeois that I sense then. In any case, it is always lovely hearing from you.

Oh, wemyss!

Y'know, I have a feeling that after writing this the author laid about him right and (mostly) left with his riding crop.

I shouldn't be at all surprised.

Not in the least.
