News Of The World online and the Crown, Lynton - Britain at it's best.
There has not been much activity on this blog recently partly due to a long weekend spent in North Devon walking on Exmoor and along the dramatic coastline. We stayed in the decaying splendour of the Valley Of The Rocks Hotel in Lynton, supped a few pints in the excellent Crown (top music, top landlord) and found a gem of a second hand bookshop in the village of Dulverton. (1947 edition of Lorna Doone - it had to be done)
Meanwhile of course, a media empire is on the brink of imploding, something is rotten in New Scotland Yard and the Bullingdon Massive are looking more and more like the overprivileged, corrupt buffoons we always knew they were. For a full in depth analysis of all this check out the new News Of The World online. British journalism at it's best.
