I have just read Argyll's transcript of Lord Deedes' piece from the Daily Telegraph.

In isolation, Deedes's piece has a point. Before taking that letter as lawless logic, however, I'd look at some of Deedes other writings, then decide. You may not wish to agree quite so readily with him then.

Deedes's friend and near neighbour, Alan Clark MP lived at Saltwood Castle very close to the canal Deedes was writing about. In fact, Clark bought Saltwood Castle from Deedes. Alan Clark was a well known anti - a consistent opponent of field sports. Unlikely that two diametrically oppposed points of view would sustain a friendship when such a fundamental difference exists wouldnt you think?

If you want confirmation, read Clark's diaries.

Alan, "lawless logic" ?
Anyway, why can't friends have completely opposite opinions on certain matters ?
I have many good friends that hold completely differing views to me, on many issues.
We respect each others opinions and our friendships are probably stronger, because of our individuality.

Sorry, I meant 'flawless' obviously.
I agree with your point, but having read a fair bit of Deedes ponderings, I find it harder to agree with him as he has grown older and more cantankerous. It was due to Deedes and Max Hastings that I gave up on the 'Daily Fascist' - far too right wing for me to handle.

As for his relationship with Clark, I agree they may have been friends in spite of their differences. But with Clark's opposition being as fundamental as it was, I think in this case it's unlikely, and that was the only reason I mentioned it.

If you want to, but with an open mind, open eyes and open ears I have no doubt that you will find the evidence that you demand.

For a start Angling Times did a survey recently !

Argyll, you are indeed a master of the tactic of ignoring facts which undermine your argument.

For example... you accused the BBC or paying Fearon because he was a crook. When it was pointed out that he wasn't being paid for being a crook you let the subject go.

You want the evidence?
I thought not. Never mind, try this - it's a copy and paste of the relevant post:
" Originally posted by argyll:
'Giving any crook a reward for simply being a crook, is simply offensive''

Where's the selectiveness in that. No sorry, still no prize.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He wasn't being rewarded for being a crook - he was being rewarded for giving his version of events. "

Your comment about 'taking that as a "No then" ', has a whiff of conceding defeat whilst trying to retain some vestige of dignity?
