What You Should Know / April 23, 2010 -- Alpha minds in and around Westminster that normally grapple with issues such as the forthcoming election, the sinking pound and the war in Afghanistan, were turned this week towards a ticklish and wholly unexpected political mystery.

    This would be far more interesting if it wasn’t Hitchens revealing the information himself.

This man deserves far worse than this, (for the sheer offensiveness of his self inflicted waterboarding if nothing else) so you need to try a bit harder than this.

    Don’t you have any spare horse cum lying around?
