Not much to smile about in UK politics at the moment but todays column by Marina Hyde is pretty good.

Jeez what absolute bliss it is to read her column, just when you're pissed off you're coming to the end she hits you with one more laughter line to send you on your way...

Get your Tory MP name by taking your name and adding ‘has resigned’ at the end.

Oooooooops, not going well with the public Boris, is it?




I'm sure it's fine.

in BJ's favour, he has only been PM for five minutes, & never previously worked in health.

on the other hand, his 'no press here' claim seems like a fairly transparent whopper even by his standards. a reflex thing, to say whatever's favourable to him, without pausing to consider whether it's true or not?

And whether they're gleefully filming you, while the clinical staff protect shooting angles like de Palma or Altman.


See Brexshit thread, he's way out of his depth.

I kind of feel that the member of the public was being a bit of an arse with the press opportunity stuff, BJ hardly the first politician/celebrity to pitch up at a hospital with a camera crew in tow, but then BJ just completely demolishes any high ground he might have had on that front with the ‘no press’ comment. As TFP says, just smacks of someone who has a lying reflex

Really? Worried that the Health Service may not be able to save your kid, you see the PM in hospital and you think he should just tug his forelock and say, 'Lovely day for it sir, shame about the cricket'?

For the sake of context there's literally no reason for Johnson to do a PR turn in a hospital right now, other than for election purposes and to suggest that he's some man of the people with the NHS interests at heart. He shouldn't have any expectation of being able to do that unless he's prepared to get called out.

Agree 100%. The older I get the more pissed off I get with the ingrained British (maybe English?) deference to authority and class. That's how we got in this mess in the first place.

Deference to authority when you believe that authority to be corrupt, unjust or incompetent is wrong, yes.

What's up? I assumed you'd wait until Leeds lost a match again before waddling back?
