Surely the French will protest.


Perhaps a strongly worded diplomatic protest by the French will finally put a cap on the madness  being imposed on political life by the kill-joy spin masters who are infecting political life worldwide. The latest outrage of these evil manipulators of public opinion is to order a ban on members of the victorious Conservative Party being seen drinking champagne at their annual party conference.
All those decades of work to make Moet, Krug, Bollinger and Veuve the symbols of celebration are being undone in the name of not upsetting cloth cap wearing English beer drinkers. I am expecting a visiting Tony Abbott to remind these modern day Tories of the horror their decision is to the memory of their former great leader Winston Churchill who declared of champagne “In victory we deserve it, in defeat we need it.”
Tony certainly knows about that second reason.
