Fantasy Father Christmas

Twenty Major has a game for all the family.
You choose one person, alive or dead.

You choose one present for them, good or bad.

Who do you choose and what do you get them?

I’d get Damien Rice a life-support machine so I could take him off it.

There are so many deserving recipients of my largesse; who on earth should I choose?

I'd get Al Gore one of those walk-in meat freezers so that I could lock him in there and scream "are you worried about warming now, you cunt?" through the door.

I'd also get Gordon Brown a book on gardening, so that he has something to occupy him upon his imminent retirement. Although, if The Nameless One is right, a jacket with really long sleeves might be the more suitable option.

Anyone else like to play?

For Gordon Brown, a lifetime membership of Exit. (being a one-off payment with instant gratification)

I'd gift Tony, as a surprise, with glassy ice placed carefully on the roll-up metal stairs of whatever plane Tony Blair has blagged off a Saudi prince (there are five thousand of them; surely at least some of them are astute enough to see through him?).

Then Tony could walk jauntily out of the plane door, smiling and waving at the cameras, and skid all the way to the bottom of the stairs, to the innocent merriment of everyone in Britain.

A bonus would be if fat Cher were right behind him and landed on top of him. What a treat for sore eyes! And with any luck, it wouldn't do his dicky ticker much good.

I must admit I appreciated the Al Gore gift.

Maybe someone could think of a nice present for Sting.

Well, 5:08, the Chicken Ranch was a money-making concern. I wouldn't want to see it driven into bankruptcy.

Too true. She probably wouldn't declare her tips

Gordon Brown a reversible mac - no need to say why!

5:19 - Harriet Harman already knows that selling sex makes money. That's why she wants to stop it.

She could claim that the girls who worked at the ranch weren't local girls, but were taken in by people traffickers from Bolivia or something. That's why she wants to have prostitution stopped. It's for "humanitarian" reasons, of course. She can't help it if she knows better than anyone else about absolutely everything.

As he's so keen on ID cards et al, can we get Neil Harding 'a mark in (his) right hand, or in (his) forehead' numbered '666'?

@5:19 Verity

OK, can we settle for getting her a ticket to Bolivia, then?

Des Browne - a one way ticket to Helmand on a Hercules with a mad Jock Bagpiper to keep him company. See how much he liked both his jobs then.

For the Department for(?) Transport I`d give them everlasting life, then impale them on a stake.

But thanks for the suggestion.

"Too true. She probably wouldn't declare her tips"

This statement makes no sense. Surely at establishments like the Chicken Ranch, they are on display for all to see...?

Oh.

Tips.

My mistake....

Apologia

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
