Falling at the first hurdle

Posted by Devil's Kitchen at 11/01/2006 09:47:00 am

Councillor Terry KellyCouncillor Terry Kelly: a face only a mother could love. Kelly obviously shops for his glasses at the same emporium as Master Worstall...

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?

The merest glimpse of the words 'Avanti Popolo' makes Scottish-raised conservatives reach for the barfbag.

'Viva la socialisma e la libertad'?

What year is this person in?

Not even McConnell sings that nonsense anymore.

Thanksfully, to the best of my knowledge and belief I can safely say we're not related.

Jesus, he's a looker, isn't he? Just seeing that photo has made me feel slightly sick. If you stand him next to Gordo you would have the Ugly Sisters from a terrible pantomime.

Martin, you've misread his banner.

It actually says "Avanti Poplo". Esperanto, maybe?

That is bloody brilliant, and I am going to spread this wonderful sentiment across the internet by making it my new signature on messageboards.

My wife was at school with one of this fool's daughters - he has been an arse for years. Being a good socialist he lived in a large three storey house, with a piano in the front room (a room 'kept good' in fine Scottish tradition.
One of his other daughters,Raileen (sp?) is also a cooncilor, and I expect shows the same level of sophisticated thinking.

I'll quiz my wife and try and find out some more about this great servant of the

Just to let you guys know, he still hasnt posted my 'challenge'. No doubt his next blog will be about lack of 'admin support'(Lazy twat), or time to answer his fans. (Lazy arrogant twat). Anyway, Im giving up checking. Wouldnt want him interpreting his 'page views' as anyone whose even the slightest bit interested in what he has to say. (Unlike yours Dear Devil!) Dear Councillor, if your reading this, we're only amused at what an arrogant arse you are. Blog site? Your stupidity knows no bounds.

anonymous check out your last post for the reason for content moderation! Foul language shows a lack of intellect!

My challenge is to you and 'alcoholiday' reveal your true identity, unless of course there is a reason to hide? If you have the courage of your convictions please do not hesitate to commment on my blog. Although you should keep in mind that if you use foul language the comment will not be posted, I don't think it is too much to ask for you to refrain from swearing in comments!

Glad to see that you are enjoying the blog though and please visit it again.
