THE LAST DITCH An Englishman returned after twenty years abroad blogs about liberty in Britain
A time, long past, for choosing
A Merry Christmas to all

My favourite post of 2010

Most of my British readers do not share my views on guns, so my favourite post of the year here at The Last Ditch will not have appealed to them as to its substance. At least I hope most would agree with my proposed amendment to the British Constitution however, which read as follows;

It is beyond the power of the members of the Legislature and the Executive to create laws, impose policies or issue instructions to state agencies that give them any greater power, privilege, immunity from prosecution or other protection than any other citizen.

I find it amazing that a political class (and the LibDems and Tories are no different from Labour in this respect) obsessed with "equality" has no problem with its own, unearned, privileges. But then, despite what the French may say, the true vice anglais has always been hypocrisy.

"have a wonderful Christmas"

Hear, Hear.

Those who haven't already seen it may enjoy Daniel Hannan's latest remarks.

Despite the best efforts of our political class, life is good, and snow is to be enjoyed.


Err, totally off topic here but have a wonderful Christmas with your family Tom and may we both have a wonderful 2011, infinitely better than 2010. :)


Actually, that was a very good post and you make a good point.

I think my favourite was probably your Party X post. Sadly, the Coalition show no signs of proving you wrong.

I was also impressed by The era of Big Government is coming to an end from Norman Tebbit. If only there were more Conservatives like him.

On that note, the honest money maiden speech was quite spectacular. What we really need is more Conservatives like Mr Baker.


Perhaps so but what was your favourite blogpost of the year, Billy?


Switzerland proves that guns are not a problem. But then again the Swiss political system ensures the politicians do as they are told by the Swiss people.
Here everything is arse about tit and has got to change.
4 million guns, 200,000 coppers and 646 MP's. Any way the numbers are run the politicians days of power are coming to an end, in my humble... and the quicker the better.
