    You could use CoverItLive, you know, open threads are so 2007 🙂

  • So Michael Heaver is on the way to the University of East Anglia to read European Politics without the faintest idea who “this chap Heathcliffe is” – after gaining an ‘A’ in English!

  • Emily Bronte’s character is part of our
    English heritage, something the European debunking Mr.Heaver should surely be aware of. That he hadn’t encountered him because ‘Wuthering Heights’ didn’t appear in his module or as a set text is a lame defence.

  • The “Young Person” was an open UKIP supporter and said so, so I’m honestly not surprised he turned out to be a swivel-eyed loon

    There were a couple of occasionas Julia could have been more forceful but I thought she did ok. How, however, did we manage to spend twenty minutes talking about knife crime and black communities without once mentioning poverty or deprivation? If nothing else I though that was right up IDS’s alley these days.

    Oh, and I want to have Saira Khan’s babies.

  • Thanks for the bite, Andy, but I was serious.
    However, I wouldn’t expect anyone who “forgoed” rather than forwent a meal (see your earlier reference to Saira Khan) to have much taste.

  • Wasn’t Heathcliff a character in a song by Kate Bush ????
