Conrad Black fired up about Hizbollah.

I was not aware that Conrad Black was doing anything much beyond keeping out of sight these days, but there's a rather punchy article with his name to it in today's Canadian National Post

"The world is now divided over Lebanon among five groups: the righteous, if dilatory wielders of the Sword of Israel; the United States, U.K., Canada and a few others, holding the door open for Israel to do what civilization and justice, in all faiths and none, require; the majority of the EU and Muslim and other countries shuffling weight from one foot to another, but hoping Israel does the necessary; nostalgic replicators of the compulsory cheerfulness of the Coue System, like the EU's Xavier Solana, who would look upon the end of the world as an exciting consciousness-raising opportunity; and the unmitigated evil of Hezbollah and its sponsors. To adapt Cato the Elder, speaking of Carthage: Delendum est Hezbollah!".

Whatever the governance goings on at Black's companies, I thought he was an excellent proprietor of the Telegraph (and The Spectator), and saved it from inexorable Express-style decline and / or sale to someone wholly unsuitable.

(Re the Coue System, I had to look it up : 'Émile Coué - French psychotherapist. He is remembered for his formula for curing by optimistic autosuggestion, “Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better.”)

The soon to be incarcerated for the rest of his natural life Conrad Black is a well know Judophile, the rumours that the suspiciously well preserved barbara was the first woman ever to have given him a blow job probably goes some way towards explaining this.
