Via David Farrer, would anyone like to convince me that the blog of Councillor Terry Kelly is a joke? Councillor Terry falls at the first hurdle really, by proudly declaring "I'm a Socialist" which, as you may have gathered by now, equates—in the narrowed eyes of your humble Devil—to him announcing that, "I am a narrow-minded, vicious, jealousy-driven tosspot with all the critical faculties of a particularly moronic howler monkey".
When someone says, "I am a Socialist", my immediate reaction is to say, "I'm so sorry" and pat them on the head. With a piece of two by four.
Councillor Kelly seems to have a … creative approach to grammar.
I've just been told about a web site run by some crowd who are having a go at me, they are of course Gnats and as you would expect absolutely dire and typical of the dreadful image which decent Scots. keep trying to shake off. When you read their stuff you are clearly reminded of their pact with the Tories which brought us the Thatcher years and the Tory/SNP coalition here in Paisley when wee braveheart Cllr. Jim Mitchell sold his so called principals for a convenership ( Paisley people still remember the shame ) As… blah, blah, blah.
This man really has a problem with the SNP, it seems. I don't like them either, but the good Councillor seems to have some kind of pathological condition. Still, I am glad of one thing: he backs Gordo for the leadership.
My choice would be Gordon Brown, Britain's best ever Chancellor and destined to be a great Prime Minister and World Statesman, as a party member for nearly forty years I have come to admire him and trust him implicitly, he’s a gut socialist and a Labour Party man to his fingertips so, go for it Gordon you have everything to gain for the country, the party and to fulfil your burning desire to serve and bring about a better society, here and in those places where people less fortunate than ourselves are suffering.
With people of this quality behind him, how can The Gobblin' King possibly fail?
Incidentally, is it just a horrible coincidence that I should find Kelly's blog today after writing the following last night?
Our problem is that we raise upon high the uninformed and those of lesser intelligence; we praise the unambitious and we waft to power the pusillanimous.
Tell me, Councillor, is that Comprehensive grammar?
