Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

Midsummer Madness

21st June - an oddly auspicious day for the speaker to choose to step down.
The notion of a human sacrifice at the Summer solstice is a common one in the Pagan traditions of Scotland and that's all I'm saying.


  1. Ahh, one of my favourite films, and my favourite quote, too:

    "May Morrison: Can I do anything for you, Sergeant?

    Sergeant Howie: No, I doubt it, seeing you're all raving mad!"

    Don't want to see any Parliamentarians dancing skyclad though, thangyewverymuch...

  2. Parliamentarians dancing skyclad Ye gods, no!

    Christopher Lee for Speaker!
