That's what they said when explaining why they were at the night rally.

As the blog comments indicate, the criticisms divided opinion sharply; from 
being thought all valid to being thought without merit. 

The sentence quoted

was also the focus of some amusement, no doubt partly because of the mental 
leap it takes. It could have come from a modern P.G.Woodhouse.

As to the connections between Bruno and the class system, this is too complex 
and difficult a topic to be tackled within the confines of a desultory Sunday 
night post. Plus, "Columbo" is on.

The Dylan Christmas album story is surely some kind of joke. It won't be 
released til at least Eastertime.
