Abbie Hoffman, I believe, who (circa late sixties) was the, or a,
founder of the Yippie Party and assorted cabals of
hallucinogen-desporting anti-establishment gadflies, principally
infuriated (who can blame them?) by the US war in Vietnam.
It might well have been Hoffman who coined the cock-a-snook motto:
Never Trust Anyone Over Thirty.
How time flies! I suppose by now it would have to be renamed the
Grumpy Party and the updated motto: Never Trust Anyone Over Seventy;
but this would be patently absurd as a good number of fine clayarters
would face imminent discrimination, which would never do!
