Welcome or otherwise to my new blog.

The name of my blog will be explained once I can find the quotation. It's from Robert Harris's novel The Ghost. One of the characters asks something like "When did it become fashionable to be an idiot?"

This is a question which interests be greatly because, where once the idiots were with us but without power, now they have gained power, are self-righteous and are stopping useful things happening. They are also encouraging destructive things to happen. When they are called to account, their defence is that they didn't mean to do harm.

Previously, I have documented instances of fashionable idiocy on myspace; but it made that blog cluttered and uneven. So from now on I shall exhibit it here.

I may sometimes try to amuse
