Speakers' Corner: "Merry Christmas, You Bastards."


I did hear this from a guy in the Northeast corner of Hyde Park two Decembers ago on a Sunday when he felt his entreaties to about 20 people to help him start a new UK political party had fallen upon unsympathetic ears. No one bought his idea. But he was fair and honest--as was his audience--and of course hilarious. But West London's Speakers' Corner is lot more civilized, fair and regulated than Cyber Corner, a/k/a the Internet. One Holiday Wish we have for you on the Net in 2012:

(1) Don't let anyone tell you What Not to Say/Write.

(2) Don't let anyone tell you What to Say/Write.

(3) Think your own thoughts: Avoid Lemming-Think.

(4) Check your facts. Carefully.

(5) Don't purposely misrepresent the views, or speculate about the motives, of others.

(6) Be aggressive--but try to have some class.

Merry Christmas, Folks.

All right, except (6) -- trying isn't doing.

Merry Christmas Dan Hull! Hope your days are bright!
