Oh, the irony - David Duff finally takes a holiday, and no sooner have we waved him goodbye than the news explodes with near-pornographic indulgence of criminality and doddering, expiring race-baiters.
This is probably for the best, since David is knocking on in years and I'd fear for his health were he to clap eyes on a console game like Manhunt 2 - I suspect he'd just detonate like a strawberry 'n' semtex milkshake at the sight of the opening titles.
Who knows, perhaps if Duff emigrated to Australia we'd see the dawn of an era in which all who contravene the unwritten laws of political correctness are marched to the Gulag and government-issued fatwas require mandatory gayness.
Personally, I can't wait to see the news tomorrow. I'm hoping that they'll ban God Save The Queen, outlaw cars and that Tracey Emin will unveil a painting called Churchill in Drag to rapturous praise.
