Spit can be corrosive, Probably the reason why Purdeys offers stainless steel barrels .
Spit would just run off the Barbour and I can walk through a river of spit in my green wellies .

Of course there will be the nutters that E M says there will be in the Conservatives, but there will be so many, many more nutters in Labour.
So in reality when I said

Don't often, if ever see these 'anarchist's' chucking eggs, spitting in faces, offering physical/sexual violence outside many Labour Party conferences..........just sayin like.

I was hitting the nail on the head

I see that loathsome ar$e Comrade Corbychev has decided to snub Her Majesty by claiming he has a 'prior engagement' and cannot attend the Privy Council meeting....

To the Tower with him, I say!

I believe Camerons's wife was in labour and gave birth the day he missed the Privy Council Meeting, probably a reasonable choice then. It would be an odd person indeed who passed over the chance of being at the birth of their child.
I wonder what Comrade Corbyn's engagement is? Abbott isnt is she?

I was selling a Vauxhall Cavalier when my son was born, he got on ok without me. It's not as if it was something important like "bake a cake dancing".

There are four or five hundred Privy Counsellors. They only need four or five for one of those stand-up carpet-edge meetings with Her Maj.

Orders in Council can proceed without him for a few weeks, just like they did when Cameron couldn't be arsed to attend his first one.

According to a news item last night there are 600 of the buggas now as it is a job for life for the likes of Bishops and Judges and arsoles of a similar ilk,I thought it was just a small group of men that sat round a table with the monarch in the big chair at the end advising said monarch who should be beheaded and such.
More jobs or the boys I reckon.

Where's Jeremy?

Cameron couldn't be arsed to attend his first one.
His wife was giving birth at the time, which seems like a reasonable excuse to most people. Your tinfoil hat needs some eye slits, so you can see the real world!

Ah... but for some selling a car has higher priority! (You just gotta have a good laugh at the strange ideas that come from the left! The sooner they disappear up their own rear-end into history, the better for all of us.)

Don't be too harsh on EF, who unlike some of the left is rarely less than courteous or reasonable. Selling cars is his living, so perhaps you can't blame him for doing what it takes to put food on the table. That was his choice. Equally, it was Cameron's choice to be present at the birth of his child, and I can't see how any reasonable person could find fault with that.

Personally, I'm glad that we have a Prime Minister who has a happy family life.

"At the time"? What time? He didn't attend for three months!

He didn't attend for three months for one very simple reason that even you might be able to understand..........the next scheduled meeting was three months later.

I should probably have explained better, but I didn't want the truth to get in the way of a good story. We had been at the hospital since 2am and a nurse said. "Nothing is going to happen yet you had better go home and get some sleep". I went back to work and sold a nag. They 'phoned me up and I got back to the hospital half an hour after "The Varmint" arrived. He is still causing trouble 26years later.

Apart from the fact the unlamented deceased had no idea as to what compassion means / meant, the legacy clearly lives on today.

You have to give Mr Ingham credit for trying however......and then there's the matter of Cecil....and to think, this lot were running the country at the time.
