A LESSON IN HAPPINESS...

...FROM THE WOMAN WHO GAVE MASSIVE DOZES OF LAXATIVES TO THE FATHER OF HER KIDS, AND THEN TRASHED HIS FABULOUSLY EXPENSIVE CAR...

OBVIOUSLY AN INCREDIBLY HAPPY WOMAN
My thanks to stand up comic, Janey Godley, for this one...

Oh, and put them away Michelle. You're supposed to be a lady now.

SOPPY SUNDAY

1. Hello. As you can see I'm having my bath,
so off you go and look a the nice pictures.
2. I'm glad that David Cameron has gone.
3. Twitter friend @mrpaulaitken had a weekend away with his camera.
The cliffs at Arbroath.
4. More from Paul.
5. It's nice to chill with a friend when you are an orphan. Not all humans are horrible, you see.
6. Wisteria, I think.
7. The magnificence of a tree.
8. White Giraffe.
9. I cannot  believe the English are thinking of reintroducing fox hunting.
10. Dordogne.
11. The healing power of a dog's love.
12. Marigolds.
13. When I whistle like this, you come running, Tris, OK?
14, I'm a sloth, so, if you come back in an hour, I'll still be in this position. And that one above can whistle all he likes. I'm not budging!
15. Wild flower meadow outside Holyrood.
16. Jutie's alpine rockery (or a part of it).
17. Glencoe, et une autre vache écossaise.
18. A sad looking Macaque.
19. WOL (for those who remember Pooh!)
20. Well, if I have to have a bath, I really don't see
 why he shouldn't. He's dirtier than I am.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

So, to add to the list of broken promises from Better Together, we now find that the fleet of global combat frigates promised by Cameron to the Clyde shipbuilders is to be put on hold, because of a mixture of technical and financial problems, putting the jobs to thousands of the Clyde's shipbuilders at risk.

No one seem to know when they will be built, if at all. The number promised by Cameron was 13. This was already reduced to eight. No the immediate plan is for none to be built. 

Fortunately for Scotland the 50,000 jobs (sorry, my mistake; it's only 500) involved in maintaining nuclear subs on the Clyde was secured by the right wing parties in England yesterday, so at least Tory (sorry, keep getting mixed up here) erm, socialist, Jackie Baillie can sleep in peace tonight. (Echos of manic laughter echo around Munguin Towers.)
**********
 American politics is every bit as crazy as UK politics at the moment, and clearly their politicians like to treat the public with as much contempt as the British ones. But seriously, just how half witted would you have to be to believe this crap?

**********
Of course the Labour Party in the UK is in the most horrific mess too, and is treating, not just members of the public, but their own supporters and members too,  as if they were morons.

Their desperate attempts to keep Corbyn, a man chosen as leader by 59.5% of the electors, off the ballot paper in a challenge to his leadership would have been astounding in any party, but for heaven's sake, in the party set up to support the ordinary person against the British Establishment, it was breath taking.

When they were forced to allow him to defend his place, they tried to put all kinds of barriers in the way of potential support. They ramped up the minimum membership to £25 and allowed a small window of time for joining. That's a hell of a lot for someone on minimum wage (remember Labour, that's the people you're supposed to be there for), or the unwaged. Then they had a website, set up to raise money to help less well off people to pay this exorbitant fee, shut down. No charity in the Labour movement. Despite this, and hell mend them, 183,541 people joined.

They also shut down Labour Party branch meetings, presumably in order to try to stop angry members deselect their right wing and hard right wing MPs. Stalin and Pinochet both would have been proud of them.

Frankly I'm beginning to wonder if there will be a single British Labour Party by the end of the year. They surely have to split and let the Blairites follow their dreams or being American puppets, while allowing Corbynites to work for ordinary people, just as the Labour Party was intended to do.

Finally, I loved this!

WHY IS HE ASKED TO COMMENT...IS IT FOR COMEDIC VALUE?

The inept, bumbling prediction disaster that is McTeacake gets it spectacularly wrong, yet again. 

I bet that Eagle managed to get through that cock up of a campaign launch which was arranged to coincide with the anointment of the reincarnation of Thatcher, and to which, consequently no one came, and thought to herself ... well, in the words of that old New Labour ditty, "Things can only get Better".

Then she saw that McTernan was rooting for her, and just knew, without any shadow of doubt, that her best bet would be to throw in the towel.


THE BEST SPEECH FROM TRIDENT DEBATE
