Posted by Helen Thursday, May 11, 2006

As an history undergraduate I used to wonder how the ruling classes of the French and Russian anciens régimes managed not to see the telling signs of what was in store. I no longer wonder, as I watch our own ruling class, in this case, the political establishment rather than an aristocracy, do their own world-famous imitation of an ostrich.

Over at the One London blog there is a list of three ostriches with a description of their behaviour. Enjoy!
