Quote of the month...

... comes from Frankie Boyle in the recent episode of Mock The Week.
Who wants to be in Gordon Brown's Cabinet? That's like being handed a pair of pilot goggles by Emperor Hirohito...

Class.

Excellent. And one more point, if I may.

Why did Japanese kamikaze pilots weare safety helmets?

Difficult to dive-bomb a ship if you've knocked yourself unconscious on the way there.

Surely being in Brown's cabinet now is like a pregnancy. 9 months of suffering, a painful end and a feeling that the rest of your life will never be the same again.

Frankie was on top form again last night, this time about Nick Clegg.

'Who is Nick Clegg? No one knows who he is! When he phones his mum to tell her he is coming round for tea, she has to look him up on wikipedia'

The Kamikaze weren't solely suicide pilots, there job was to stop the US ships at all costs. They were given helmets like any other pilot to stop them banging their heads and being knocked out.

Oh, Christ on a bike... You've inherited Verity.

Anyhoo... Will you be doing a post on the result in Norwich North?

Speaking of comedy, where's the report of LPUK's debute venture into the world of Parliamentary politics. Seeing as you're probably to modest to promote your party's successes I hope you won't blush if I step in with the highlights fromn the Norwich North by-election:

* 0.1%
* 36 votes
* 1 quarter of the votes achieved by the Monster Raving Loony Party

Onwards and Upwards to a Libertarian Britain!

Aaagh. I just laughed at a Frankie Boyle line.

That can't be right - he's only the BBC's idea of a comedian - i.e. not a funny one.

He must have recycled it from someone else.

With appropriate coercion to get on the damned plane too.
