THE LAST DITCH An Englishman returned after twenty years abroad blogs about liberty in Britain
What rights are conferred by your son being murdered?

A pleasant afternoon

Bar It was great to meet James Higham today, whose blog I have read for so long. His writing style is so intensely personal that I had the strange feeling of renewing auld acquaintance. James is in life as he seems from his blog; affable, erudite and articulate. It was good to exchange recollections of our very different lives in Russia, hear his theories as to what is going on in British politics and exchange opinions on the current output of our fellow-bloggers.

It was also a delight to  renew the acquaintance of Bag, my old mucker from Second Life and proprietor of the sadly-strewn-with-tumbleweed Bag's Rants blog.

We motored out into the Cheshire countryside, to the intense Italian music of Vittoria's V8, and spent pleasant hours together at the Cock o' Barton gastro pub. Thank you gentlemen, for the pleasure of your company.

The pleasure was ours. I always enjoy a good chat with someone well versed in wordly matters.

Thanks again for the time spent drooling over the read leather.


An afternoon well spent in the British manner, save for Vittoria.:)

Meeting in person people one has come to know so well by their words in a wonderful experience and conversation never wavers as they are indeed like old and comfortable friends.


It sounds like a good time was had by all :-)


Its a nice place the cock


Ach, you got in first, Tom and I can only confirm that a lovely afternoon was had by all. I don't appear in public all that often so was glad to confirm to you that I do exist and I was relieved that you do too or so it seemed for the first few ales.

Thanks for that today. Blogpost coming up.
