Bloody typical. Just NO CLASS!

Secretary-General of the Commonwealth arriving at a Commonwealth summit ahead of Remembrance Day, Poppy Day, with a bare bloody lapel.

Indians!

This is why I am ecstatic and running around thanking all of the Indian gods I can think of that the Indian, P.M., President or whoever has decided not to attend.

I was also thinking this morning, Canada should leave the Commonwealth. I have come up with the BEST criteria for Commonwealth membership. CRICKET.

If you don’t have a proper, credible national cricket team get the hell out of our Commonwealth. Yes, yes, of course, I know that Canada claims to have a cricket team made up of ex-pats from other Commonwealth countries. But, it is not a Test team and from the little I have seen of them they couldn’t beat the Oxford 11 even if our boys agreed to bat ‘in reverse’ and field with one hand tied behind their backs.

So, I might be on my own, but I am happy that India and Canada will not be there. They will not be missed — trust me on that.

The cerebral U.K. ‘The Guardian’, as ever, makes a good point. Got me thinking. Do Catholics do anything about Remembrance Day?


Now please, stand up, erect, and join me in a rousing rendition of ‘Rule Britannia’.

Trust me you will feel rejuvenated and righteous after that.
