Riley is basically a decent chap but since the English gave them such a humiliating Rugby thrashing just a few weeks ao , the whole national psyche has slipped a considerable way . And this was on top of their old masters humiliating them at the rowing and sailing in the Olympics . The possums need time to re-group .
A good way to judge the vitality and health of a country is to look at their comedians . They have never had one . But since Lenny Bruce , neither have you , unless you are going to be silly and suggest Texarsian , George Bush .
