From today's Simon Hoggart column...

But Lord Mackie also said, quite splendidly, that he did not agree with another Lib Dem peer, Lord McNally. "I would not defend to the death his right to have these views, because I am annoyed that a man of such obvious ability and intelligence should hold them."

I've always wanted to hear someone deliberately misquote Voltaire in this way: "I disapprove of what you say but, by God sir, I will defend to the death my right to smash you in the face for saying it." It would be so much more sincere.


Hee hee hee. :o)

Maybe this should be my motto.
