MOLESWORTH MEETS POTTER. Hear is the trew storey of a dreem where nigel molesworth, curse of st. custards, finds himself at hogwarts. he lerns some things in english bording skools never change eg GURLS are all swots and snekes.

It is shurely no coincidense (hem hem) that in How To Be Topp the Headmaster of rival skool porridge court is called 'hoggwart'.

HOW ELITIST ARE YOU? Take the David Flint test, as detailed in his new book The Twilight of the Elites.

I'm disppointed to find I'm not as much of an elitist as I thought:

(i) republican: member of the ARM, and have even been known to put leaflets in letter boxes and fill envelopes for membership drives.
(ii) favour reconciliation: is anyone actually against it?
(iii) are weak on border protection: I think there's a case for continuing mandatory detention, but the detention centres are appallingly run.
(iv) oppose Australia's involvement in Iraq: supported it.
(v) favour a significant increase in Australia's population: favour it, just not in Sydney!
(vi) tolerate abortion: don't like it, but think the only real way to stop it is education, and support for women to have babies rather than abort them.
(vii) are soft on divorce: I'd make it harder to get married in the first place.
