Wisdom in TyposNovember 30, 2007 Tim WorstallNewspaper Watch3 CommentsRumours are now rife that Mr Leslie, still only 35, is now understood to harbour ambitions to return to the Common. previousHumans and HaremsnextThat Uranium Seizure 3 thoughts on “Wisdom in Typos” Little Black Sambo November 30, 2007 at 1:10 pm Leslie was one of the most irritating MPs in the last Parliament. He was given the task of justifying new constitutional arrangements that would separate the legislature, judiciary, etc. He went over and over his prepared text like a Mormon at the front door, always falling back on the axiom that we must separate the legislature etc etc without ever explaining why. I suspect the reason was some requirement by the stinking EU.

It was historically common land for the parishes of Battersea and Clapham, but was converted to parkland under the terms of the Metropolitan Commons Act 1877. The common contains three ponds which are historical features and a more modern paddling pool.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clapham_Common JMW Turner’s painting of Clapham Common (1800-05) in the Tate collection: http://www.tate.org.uk/servlet/ViewWork?cgroupid=999999996&workid=14730&searchid=8898 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
