Alan Coren has died. Coffee House the Spectator blog, has stuff on him so you don’t need me as you are all good blogotrons and can get to him yourselves. But he coined a word, and I think it’s grand.
In Greek, all those of you who are sad socialists like Polly Toynbee who have cancelled the teaching of the stuff except for your own children, it means “around the city”. It exactly sums up what in another age would have been called the “Yeomanry”; tha backbone of classical liberalism, and the exact sort of people whom Libertarians need to win votes from, if we are to rescue the UK, and therefore by inference the rest of the World, from the cesspit of idealism.
