It's The Glorious Twelfth!

Today is the Glorious Twelfth, a big day in the Socialism calender, the start of open season on grouse shooting. Now we're not avocating blood sports but, as British rural tradition, and, in the past but sadly not this year, a slow news time of year, this is the start of silly season where tweed clad toffs take aim and blast poor grouse out of the skies and into the pot. Anyways, it's also an excuse to raise a glass to one of our stupider traditions. Bottoms up, chin chin, cheers.
