The occasion of Peter Tatchell\’s 60 th birthday.
His various forays into the world of economics have been laughably ignorant.
Certain of his campaigns have been based upon very, very, odd readings of the world.
Yet, as Sellars and Yeatman didn\’t put it, he\’s not been wrong but wromatic, nor even right but repulsive.
On balance, he\’s been a Good Thing.
On which note Happy Birthday to Mr. Tatchell, someone who probably wouldn\’t accept one but most certainly should be offered a peerage.
For we should cherish, promote, reward and acknowledge the loons that we are privileged to have among us.
