More Mingery

As usual, Mr Angry's response to Ming's resignation was a little out of the ordinary.
In parts of the media there has been uproar about the possibility of raising the retirement age beyond 65. Yet now, when a 66 year-old man decides it is time to call it a day, it is also considered newsworthy. I wish they would make up their minds.

I am not particularly interested in Sir Menzies Campbell, but find amusing the amount of media attention his resignation has created.

As I watched the drama unfold on Sky news the other evening, I saw party chairman Simon Hughes being asked repeatedly, “Did you wield the knife? DID YOU WIELD THE KNIFE!”

There is nothing quite like sexing-up a boring old resignation, is there?

I would have loved Simon Hughes to have come back out to the baying hordes and said, “Actually no. There were no daggers involved. That would be barbaric. As a forward thinking party we advocate the use of technology, and I feel it is only right to say that once the electrodes were securely fastened to Ming’s testicles, he was more than compliant. In fact, we are hoping that testicle-electrodes will become a core element in our election manifesto. ASBO’s are dead. Long live the testicle-electrode!”

I would almost vote for them if he were to say that. Almost.

Do you know, I don't think that there is enough humour in politics: we need more political wags*...


* As in wits, not as in WAGs who are, I am told, those tedious cunting thick-as-fuck bimbo girlfriends of tedious cunting thick-as-fuck footballers. Or something.

Media all over the Ming resignation > What a surprise - no space left for protests about the UK-give-away about to be perpetrated by Brown this week in Lisbon.

Ming is such a good EUropean, even willing to sacrifice hispolitical career in the interets of the EU. Good for him.

But NOT for the rest of us.

Why can't the Tories PR?

Though they are not a party that your humble Devil whole-heartedly endorses, the various Tory governments since 2010 have not been entirely ...
