Bit short of time, so have some links instead to places I enjoyed visiting in cyberspace this weekend.
Alone in the Dark is one of many to be dismayed by Peter Hitchens's utter shite about poverty being a lie created by New Labour to destroy the middle class. The only thing I'd add about the supposedly egalitarian merits of 11+ is that wealthier parents simply invest their cash in more coaching and tutoring for their little darlings in order to pass the exam.
Flying Rodent has an excellent new rule for internet discussion:
"If NY Times columnist and philosopher-golfer Thomas Friedman favours a particular policy, it follows that said policy is bound for disastrous failure and should be vociferously opposed."
Rhetorically Speaking looks at the ad hominem argument against Heathrow protesters - they're actors and therefore their views mean nothing - a view began by Richard Littlejohn and quickly steamed into by Iain Dale and Geoff Hoon.
Pigdogfucker, meanwhile, has a couple of stellar entries - on why it's bollocks to call all people with jobs 'hardworking' as opposed to all 'feckless' folk on benefits; and ; and a damning verdict on a putrid piece of child manipulation.
And it's lovely to be reminded of some good old fashioned misogyny in this delightfully frank letter from the Walt Disney Studios back in 1938.
