Quote of the week

In “The Old Regime and the Revolution”… Alexis de Tocqueville observed that, in the decades leading up to the Revolution, France had been notably prosperous and progressive. We hear a lot about the hunger and the song of angry men, and yet the truth is that, objectively, the French at the start of the seventeen-eighties had less cause for anger than they’d had in years. Tocqueville thought it wasn’t a coincidence. “Evils which are patiently endured when they seem inevitable, become intolerable when once the idea of escape from them is suggested,” he wrote.

Parody of the JSC

This is a very funny parody of the non-appointment of Jeremy Gauntlett by the Judicial Service Commission, making use of the now familiar scene from “Downfall” in which Hitler is told it is all over. Just because it is Friday.
