My view here. (NSFW)
Pat Condell comes off the fence…
I met the local UKIP Candidate on Saturday, he struck me as a bit of a Div.
Last week, I saw a cracking blockpost about the four elephants in the room that none of the Political parties are mentioning. Trouble is, I can’t find it again. Does it ring any bells with either of my readers?
It wasn’t anything to do with Discworld and the great A’Tuin. The elephants were the EU, the National Debt, the Energy Crisis & something else that will be obvious with hindsight.
EDIT- Found it- Christopher Booker in the Telegraph.
Two extremes yesterday. In Morley, it was the open day for the Fire Station and Police Station. Whilst they don’t use their custody suite any more (as evidenced by the other cells being full of filing boxes!) Cell number four had been emptied in order for the law abiding to see how the other half lives. David tested out the low level bunk but fortunately not the toilet, which had a cling film cover to discourage use. No seat, an observation peephole and flushed from outside by the Custody Officers. Not a pleasant way to spend an evening at the Discomfort Inn.
Contrast that with a trip to Forbidden Corner, for a Charity Barbecue. Forbidden Corner is a Folly near Leyburn in North Yorkshire, we have wanted to go there for a while but it is necessary to pre-book and the thought of doing it in bad weather did not appeal. Fortunately it was a balmy evening and a fun couple of hours searching through the rather peculiar attraction for stickers to put on our collection card for the prize draw. There were surprises all over the place, but the biggest one of all was in the toilets in the car park. You entered through outhouse Privys (fortunately out of order!) into luxurious surroundings. The Ladies was smart but undistinguished, whilst the Gents was decorated with an exotic mural and you were able to pick a Continent of your choice for the purposes of micturation.
Dig out that old shirt and send it to 10 Downing Street with a note of what you really think of this budget- let us know that you have done it on firstname.lastname@example.org
10, Downing Street
I have one that is suitable which I have featured before.
