Sunnyside

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN One of the great pleasures during the Great Lockdown of 2020 has been cycling to collect eggs. Such is the nature of lockdown that certain acts that were previously deemed something of a bind are now considered adventures to be relished.

Cigar Today, Persistence Tomorrow

BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Twitter is simultaneously a brilliant and awful invention – brilliance and awfulness coming in equal measure. At election time the nasty Marxists seem to lose their heads, randomly firing their Gatling gun off with insults.
