. . . AND PHILLIPS IN THEORY
Surely the self-confessedly reluctant presidential candidate (one can hardly now say hopeful) was only being commented upon for his BNP membership, but according to your recent report he has now denied being a misogynist ( ajplus 19.06.06).
Perhaps this is a Freudian slip, or some curious malapropism, which reveals that the two persuasions are confused in the candidate's mind (if not in yours). Such a colourful combination, if true, can only guarantee him the electoral dustbin in today's misguided 'one person, one vote' climate, but it does not take much imagination to picture the utopia it would bring for our ageing white male profession, if only we had the courage to embrace these principles: PFI schools a distant bad memory, Speer-inspired Zimmer factories and clone guards' barracks to doodle in the endless leisure of our women-free laager. Voting has never been simpler!
