Sprogs - great idea!

Sprogs - your posting hinted at a great idea. We should have a competition to see which soccer kit would fit which politician. Mellor wore Chelski when he had his toe-job.

What team would Mandy be in? Broon? The Eyebrows bloke?

I guess the only problem would be that they'd all have to be in Scottish teams, and many southerners in Aviation wouldn't know the subtleties. I guess the LibDems would wear Spurs kit, with "Next Year, Definitely" as its sponsor.
The Attorney General in Wenger kit - "I didn't see it".
Geoff Hoon would wear Man City kit..............altho they pay per minute what he wanted per day.
Mick Wills (Justice Department) would wear Barnet kit, sponsored by Dr Who.

UKIP for me this time and I have only ever voted Tory. They wouldn't have got us into Iraq, promote a free trade agreement with Europe and don't want us signed up to all this nonsense eminating from Brussels. And UKIP wants to sort out the immigration mess that Labour has got us into over the last 13 years.

Never thought i'd ever vote for a party that is not mainstream, but I want my country back.

Already, by early afternoon, the gormless 'You can't vote if you're not registered' TV adverts started appearing.

Wonder how much money they're wasting on those?

Just watched the Beeb News.....oh dear !

It would be nice if somebody informed a Mr Vine that this is actually a News programme, in theory, and that his audition for a presenters job on :

BBC - CBeebies - Home

should be confined to that channel. Contrary to his belief, not all the UK population are clinically brain dead...yet....although if the saturation coverage continues this might well be the case. In fact, I reckon that's all part of the cunning plan...saturation coverage = total boredom and fed up to the back teeth with all the bolleaux = vote for anybody or the usual party just to put an end to matters....and Bingo ! result for Nu ( now Team ) Labour.

On the other hand, it was nice of the powers that be at the Beeb to suddenly realise, well until the election is over anyway, that there is life in the UK outside Islington.

It gets worse however. The local news in the Midlands presented by Ms "I'm terribly important so listen to me!"....think Spangles 2 here..has decided to have a "command centre" and thus a military theme to coverage......thankfully the sanity of C4 News awaits.

I'm just hoping for a repeat of the result we had in 1997. That's when I walked into the staffroom of the Comp where I was teaching and said - "It's nice to see a ex-public schoolboy back in No 10 again,.

Took the shine off their celebrations

Mandy used to sit for Hartlepool when he was an MP, so Hartlepool kit it is.

Broon should be in Saracens kit, or perhaps Harlequins, as he clearly doesn't understand the world in which he finds himself and belongs in a different world altogether.

Team Labour.
He's one of a team. Well, his team looked a bit like the one I found myself in one morning back in the olden days. We knew we were in a team, because Drill Instructor Sergeant "Dino" Stoneman, standing out there in front of our cowering group, told us it was so. We were his team and we were going to be the smartest damned team on The Wing, OR ELSE!!

Did any one see GB's procession through St Pancras station yesterday? The idiot BBC commentator remarked on how many of the general public Brown was greeting and shaking hands with en-route to his train.

Do these people have no brains? Did it not occur to them that the Labour Party - knowing his itinerary - might, just might have arranged for a couple of bus loads of supporters in civvies to be placed along Brown's route?

I would not have thought that Special branch woul allow the PM to wander amongst the general public because of the security possibilities. Why didn't some public spirited person get rid of the so and so? So I figure Andy_S has it right - suitable plants for him to shake hands with.

Yesterday's support at St Pancras was straight from the stalinist handbook!

Guess there will be a few 'spontaneous' rallies in support of our great leader breaking out around the country between now and election day

Never been canvassed by a prospective MP either.
But, seeing as they're only going to tell you what they think you want to hear and then do whatever their party tells them to once elected, I can't honestly say that's a great loss to me.

As they're mostly self serving tawts (anag, for the crossword addicts) with their snouts in the trough up to their ears, I'm not sure I'm even going to bother this time, especially seeing that I'm virtually disenfranchised where I live if I don't vote Tory, so there's no point really.

Anyway, I'm truly froghtened for the future whichever bunch of wasters gets in. Whoever it is is going to be after my pension and all my money anyway in order to pay the bankers and increasing the take of all those on benefits.

Two Crocodiles were sitting at the side of the River Thames .The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said,

"I can't understand how you can be so much bigger than me? We're the same age; we were the same size as kids. I just don't get it."

"Well," said the big Croc, "what have you been eating?"

"Politicians, same as you," replied the small Croc.

"Hmm. Well, where do you catch them?"

"Down the other side of the river near the parking lot by Westminster ."
"Same here. Hmm.....How do you catch them?"

"Well, I crawl up under one of their Lexus or Mercedes cars and wait for one to unlock the car door. Then I jump out, grab them by the leg, shake the shit out of them and eat 'em!"

"Ah!" says the big Crocodile, "I think I see your problem. You're not getting any real nourishment. See, by the time you finish shaking the shit out of a politician, there's nothing left but an arsehole and a briefcase."

Yes, Onion Man, I am in the same position as you. Out of Europe, more control over immigration, stop the waste here (most of it originating in Europe), dismiss the claims of man-made climate change, financial priorities for the people of this country by adequate defence spending, education and health needs we are looking for.

You really need 2-4 years to conduct a proper election.

Thanks to the wonderful policies of Noo Labour and Gordo the One-Eyed in particular, I transferred 10,000 quid of my hard earned RAF pension over to Oz the other week and I lost approximately $8,000 in comparison to the last time I transferred some.

I am fervently hoping for a Conservative win, or at least a trouncing of the Gordo monster even it is with the help of Nicky Who?. At least then, when the Pound gets the 'dead cat bounce' I can transfer a sizeable sum and not lose quite as much.
