Wince

“I wish you wouldn’t keep all these things to yourself and then spring them on me,” I told him irritably.

“But you asked me for an opinion and I gave it, for what it’s worth. Mavin would wince if he had to wring a chicken’s neck.”

Christopher Bush – The Case of the Corporal’s Leave (1945)

The quote is from a detective story of the Golden Age style although this one is later. Not a very quotable writer, but what struck me about this quote is that we could still use the idea behind it.

For example, all MPs could be required to wring a chicken’s neck without wincing before they actually become an MP. It could be a way to weed out the weeds. The chickens could be sent to the nearest food bank.

Not an entirely serious suggestion of course but we do appear to need some kind of test. The ability to think for example. The ability to withstand fads and fashions. The ability to identify and close worthless institutions such as the BBC. At the moment, far too many MPs would score Fail, Fail, Fail on these three tests alone.
