    Friends, when your leaders are loved and adored and fawned over by a diverse array of corporate media megaphones, that is when it dawns on you that you are surrounded by dealers, robbers and shills and you are the Mark.

    Amazing after they had the Aussies at 122-8 in the first innings....

    England has no idea how to bat for a draw...

    Of course you did.

    The Brits dealt with Charles I and Charles II. Of course your right to make changes in your leadership without any more than a ballot are due in largest part to the men that were willing to risk everything, life and property to stand up to
    despots.

    To think that England have or had a very good record at Edgbaston in recent years. We tend to lose at Lord's......
