Unfortunately, affectation when continued long enough becomes authentic habit, and now in Britain the relentless march of downward cultural aspiration has borne fruit.

Merry Christmas! Thank you for your work on this excellent site – have been following it for years now. God bless!
Thank you for the kind comment, Rebekah. I wish you all the best for 2021. God help us all.
Thanks, and merry Christmas!
Thanks for being there!
