    They hadn't won at Edgbaston since 2001....I was there on day 1, in the Hollies stand, when England bowled out Australia for 118 in 1997....

    Lord's is a graveyard for England in the Ashes..I think they have only won there once since 1934....

    Sounds like some of these teams really need some help in the bullpen!

    And they brought with them the memory of what they as Brits had done and would do with a tyrant that thought he was born with the right to rule them. Charles I and Charles II were as much or more the cause of the American founding as George.

    The politics one could theoretically take or leave; but the haircut! I mean, the hair styling. One is led to believe by usually reliable sources that the fellow rumples his hair at the exact moment any gentleman would be reaching for his brushes. In fact, one is reminded of the immortal Bertie Wooster's response in re: Roderick Spode:
    "Well, I'm dashed. I thought he was something of that sort. That chin…those eyes…and for the matter of that, that moustache. By the way, when you say 'shorts' you mean 'shirts', of course."
    "No. By the time Spode formed his association, there were no shirts left. He and his adherents wear black shorts."
    "Footer bags, you mean?"
    "Yes."
    "How perfectly foul."

    Can I have a show of hands?

    How many believe Britain would have been better served with more Jeeves in charge and fewer Woosters?

    Until Cameron the PMs have hardly been upper class Wooster type backgrounds....Wilson, Thatcher, Major, Brown....perhaps Blair a bit...

    But now with the current Eton/Oxbridge toffs it's truly a mess...

    I wouldn’t classify Thatcher with the others. She had a middle class background.
