Happy new year, LTP fans!
I'm on holiday in the tropical North. The weather is impeccable, but internet connectivity is pretty spasmodic.
This morning, I spent three quarters of an hour helping a family of tourists whose SUV had got stuck in the sand on Ninety Mile Beach. Later this afternoon, I found the same car stuck in a ditch an hour and a half North of our first rendezvous.
I briefly saw the welfare state through a conservative's eyes.
