On the Coalition

 This section made me cackle particularly madly :

Around a year ago, it seemed clear that Cameron would be PM and that, after six weeks in power, the mask would slip and he'd legalise the hunting of single mums. . . Drunk with power, Cameron would issue breathtakingly heartless decrees from his onyx throne, while Andy Coulson squatted at his feet, cackling like Gollum and drinking from a skull."

I do know people whose fear and hatred of hunting is so pronounced, they were convinced that the *first act* of a Conservative government, even in coalition, would be to revive fox-hunting and were preparing to race out and fling themselves in front of the horses.    I know my sums are bad, but even I can work out the numbers on that one.
