Politics & Current Affairs

Shoots and Ladders

Let's cut to the chase - the US Secret Service: In on it? Or just totally crap? Well, I've thought the Secret Service were rubbish not just since we learned of the Cartagena hookers but for at least another decade before that. And increasingly, when it comes to American officialdom - from Kabul to Uvalde - to modify Henry Ford, you can get it in any colour as long as it's bloated, lavishly over-funded and entirely dysfunctional. And yet and yet... it's hard to believe even these guys (plus their bevy of five-foot-two-eyes-of-blue Keystone chorus girls) could be this crap. Assuming for the purposes of argument that the body on the roof is actually that of the perp, a goofball barely out of high school hatched a plan to have Donald Trump's ...

A Clubman's Notes

A Rolls in the Road

Here we go with Part Four of our latest audio diversion: Bulldog Drummond - the pseudonymous Sapper's 1920 caper set in an England seething with Bolshevists and a sinister globalist cabal that knows how to exploit them. Veronica, doyenne of our Kwi Clubbers, writes of the story so far: A promising beginning and, in common with several of the other stories on the TFOT shelves, the protagonist has been propelled into adventure by the crushing weight of middleclass boredom: Richard Hannay is bored and restless at the start of The Thirty-Nine Steps, so is Carruthers in The Riddle of the Sands and Psmith in Psmith, Journalist, and Tommy and Tuppence are not only bored but broke, and thus forced to advertise, in The Secret Adversary. Even good ...
