A kind reader in Australia has twigged that, despite rebuilding the Greek Hovel in an area teeming with snakes, I have a, perfectly rational, fear of the little critters and has thus taken to sending me photos and stories about them on a regular basis. Today's really is the stuff of nightmare and comes with photos.

His mate was just driving along when he noticed something on the driver's side window. The snake in question is a highly venomous red belly black snake. I would have jumped out the passenger side and left the car in the middle of the road running as fast as I could shouting snakes fuck snakes fuck. Natch the couple in question being hard Aussies merely stopped the car and removed it safely with no harm done to anyone.

Reasons not to go to Australia No 107 - snakes on the car.

Photo Article: on #HolocaustMemorial Day a candle burns here in Wales

I wonder if, in places like bourgeois East Oxford where at least one house in every street flies a Palestinian flag all year round, how many candles are burning this Holocaust Memorial Day. I suspect rather more will be burning on Friday as the chattering classes mourn our exit from the European Superstate founded a few years after the last failed attempt at European unification.
