An auspicious debut at the Watcher’s Council

Wolf Howling is the newest member of the Watcher’s Council and he exploded on the scene with a bang:  his first post as Council member took first place, and deservedly saw, since it cast a jaundiced eye on a new British program that is ostensibly intended to tame the more radical Muslim population, but in effect is dhimmitude writ large.  As it was, he had me with the first paragraph:

One could analogize the utter insanity in Britain this week to putting the foxes in charge of the hen house, but that comparison falls far short of reality. The only danger of that fact pattern is that the farmer is out a few chickens. One needs instead to analogize to a fact pattern where the foxes radicalize the chickens and establish a heniphate on the entire farm.

Anyone who can coin the word “heniphate” is someone I admire!

But let me give you the full list of posts receiving votes, both Council and non-Council:
