    I suppose it wouldn’t make any difference if it had been a ‘British wife and a German mistress’, would it? The man is a cad, rapscallion, and a bounder.
    The Finnish conscription system is pretty good too. and isn’t it time we had a few more scientists in Govt instead of PPE nerds??

    I think you can only be a cad OR a bounder: I think most politicians are bounders – Duncan-Smith, Blair, David Laws, and James Purnell are four excellent examples of this greasy and greedy species

    Incidentally, the prison book ban’s been overturned.
