Reminds me: as the B&T commentariat are all better read than me, anyone know if The Book of Dave is worth a go?

I liked it. Sags in places, due to Self's habit of making a book out of extended riffs stitched together, but it holds together and makes a good case against self-conscious resentful masculinity. His highly personal experiments in phonetic speech are a bit less irritating than usual as well.

Incidentally, I asked him about what he thought of the Booker a few years back in an interview and he just arched his eyebrows and said "PETS win prizes". Not this time though.

Red Lion Square no.
But perhaps something tasteful in the toilets of Dallas's George W Bush Memorial Library?

Bitching for Britain. Excellent.

Good line. He must have taken ages to think it up.

It'd be too much to hope for that they would take the Muggletonians as a model, would it?

Muggeridgians, perhaps.

Statues, though? They should be organising 'Hitch Night Suppers' with ample JW Black Label, readings from their Master's works, and the highlight being the grand entrance of a suet pudding, which is then ceremoniously told to fuck off. Dress code: crumpled linen suit.

I met the world's last Muggletonian. Considering the fact that they used to deliver venomous and blasphemous sermons praising the Devil in their hey day, he was a very nice and quietly spoken farmer.

On a related note, it looks like Denis MacShane is getting a 12 month suspension for fiddling his expenses.

It never ceases to amaze me at the gullibility of some people, who still haven't seen through Hitchens maverick contrarian bollocks. It's curious how his fearless defence of reason and the so-called values of Western democracy neatly dovetailed into useful propaganda for illegal invasions and untold deaths and misery as a result. Even years after it was clear to a reasonbly intelligent 10 year old that Afghanistan and Iraq had become disasters, he was too intellectually dishonest to admit it. Then we get the low rent atheism. And now a statue is to be funded by the buffoonerati. Unbelievable.
