As Christmas approaches it is the traditional time to think of those less fortunate than ourselves. You know, the hopeless, friendless and soon-to-be bankrupt. Someone has established a blog to Keep Tony Blair as PM. I’m not quite sure why, as the link was received by Your Servant via multiple intermediaries. Heavy irony suspected.
For genuinely pitiful loneliness, of course, you have to go to people trapped in the state sector. Take this poor old chap. Be honest: could you live with yourself if you came back in January and found that he had gone the same way as Benny Hill? Probably “yes”. But that’s not the point. Take time to pay him a visit. Never forget: a blog is for life, not just for Christmas.
