“I’ve always encouraged people not to engage in hunger strikes in the past,” says Andrew Bartlett, “and I still don’t encourage them to do so.” Nevertheless, the former Democrats leader plans to begin a hunger strike this weekend.
He’s an unpredictable fellow, our Andrew. Did you know, for example, that he’s a closet P.J. O’Rourke fan and a reader—an approving reader—of this site? Maybe we should send him some food. Bartlett and George W. Bush aren’t the only politicians who get blogs, by the way; yesterday I received a Christmas card from Minister for Foreign Affairs (and fellow pawn of the hegemon) Alexander Downer. You know, if this place is enjoyed by conservatives and Democrats alike, I must be doing something seriously wrong.
Sam Ward is operating on a much higher level, becoming ensnared in a drinking session with Ian Chappell, Waqar Younis, and Simon O’Donnell. I was an O’Donnell drinky victim in ‘93, although we weren’t joined by other old cricketers; instead, we had to make do with the company of model Jo Bailey.
