Speculation

Whilst driving into work this morning I ended up behind a land rover with a spare wheel cover emblazoned with the Confederate Flag.

This, I have to say, is somewhat confusing. What possible reason could there be for a vehicle in the North East of England to bear the colours of the Confederated States?

Obviously, since the alternative is doing work, I've spent the day coming up with a list of possibilities:
  • The driver loves slavery. Just can't get enough of it. There's always room for more slavery, he thinks to himself, and he doesn't care who knows it;
  • The driver doesn't love slavery, he loves a complex set of other considerations including states' rights and economic independence, and slavery just happens to be in there, honest;
  • Has heard Texas wants to secede again, figures he'll give moral support;
  • Just really fucking likes stars;
  • Offered 20% discount on car if he took the Confederate cover. He couldn't quite bring himself to take the 30% discount for the Swastika cover, or the 50% discount for a cover that reads "We Need More Paedos".
Other suggestions welcome.

Ill informed tribute to Leonard Skynyrd or Dukes of Hazard?

Oh and by way of a slight dig when I saw:

I was thinking:


“What possible reason could there be for a blogger in the North East of England to be constantly blogging on American Politics?”

Ah, don't worry. Three seconds after I posted my last comment I thought "Damn, I should have asked what possible reason could there be for a blog commentator in the Channel Islands to be constantly commenting about a blogger in the North of England constantly blogging on American Politics?"

So, y'know, I only failed to counter-dig because I didn't think of it in time.
