Hmm. Harriet Potter, perhaps? - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
Hmm. Harriet Potter, perhaps?

With the re-emergence of the Rt Hon Tony Blair and the Chilcott enquiry (we may take it as read that my opinion of the war is quite probably different to yours), I have been moved to watch, once more, with pleasure, the House of Cards trilogy.

The usual reactions have ensued – How on earth did Portillo and Heseltine not recognise themselves in Dobbs’s caricatures?, and, FU: At least our Evil Bastards are competent to govern. Not a bad party political slogan, that – and a new one. In retrospect, it is startling to realise how very greatly Susannah Harker then resembled Daniel Radcliffe now. They ought to have cast her as Lily, really.

Well, I certainly prefer FU putting a bit of stick about to Alastair Campbell's mad rantings...

Funnily enough we're re-watching the trilogy at the moment. Overwhelming feeling is how good Ian Richardson is as Urqhart, and how much he seems to be enjoying every minute ....
