It also seems that the Freedom of Information Act has been altered specifically to ensure the confidentiality of these briefings, the constitutional propriety of which, in my opinion, may be questionable. As has always been the case in British history, it might be the case that it's one rule for some, and another for Those Who Matter. In this country, you need do nothing but merely be in order to matter, an admirably Christian position but not one that's universally applied. Today's news is not really the sort of disclosure that makes you proud to be British, God wot.
I can't understand why that man just can't stick to talking to his plants and leave the rest of us in peace without hectoring us, and the people who are entrusted with our government, with his views, while his fondness for killing wild animals for sport and lecturing the rest of us on the need to eat less meat seems precisely the same philosophy of life once expounded to Bugs Bunny by Elmer Fudd. Instead of pandering to his nonsense on the sole basis that he will one day, and in my view illegitimately, if only because their use by every monarch since Henry VIII has been illegitimate, the initials 'FD', those two little initials that seem to be the rock upon which every British government since Henry's day has been built and such an important one that they still appear on every coin minted, it might be good for our government's health for him to be ignored for a while instead.
