    it look like he and his coreligionists would accept some regulations.  When you get down to the details they always conclude that any regulation is bad.  It's an article of faith in their religion.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      disgrace your screen name. Seriously.
      You ought to change it to "Defend the parts of our Constitution I personally approve of."
      That's probably too long, though.

          Add the milk and stir to make a soft dough.

          Grease a pudding basin with butter and spoon the mixture into the basin. Cover with a piece of folded greaseproof paper.

          Tie around the edge with string to secure the paper and place a damp tea towel over the top. Tie once more with string to secure the tea towel.

          Place the basin into a large lidded saucepan and fill the pan two-thirds of the way up with water.

          Cover with the lid, bring to a boil and simmer for one hour.

          For the custard, place the milk and cream into a saucepan and bring to a simmer.

          Place the egg yolks and sugar into a bowl and whisk together until light and frothy.

          Pour the hot milk onto the eggs, a little at a time, and stir well. Pour the mixture back into the pan and cook over a low heat, stirring with a wooden spatula, until just thickened.

          To serve, slice a wedge of spotted dick for each person and place onto each of six plates. Pour over the custard and serve at once.
