SMILE ON SATURDAY

ONE OF THESE IS THE FUTURE PRIME MINISTER

Smile! Think of your GO HOME vans or denying unaccompanied refugee kids access to UK, or throwing Australian families out of Scotland. Yep, that's not bad considering it's you.
Unfortunately, it's not the turtle that's standing.
Nice going, Crabbie.
At this rate you'll be able to retire before the contest and save us all some sleepless nights.
You can't have one without the other...
Oh, and we can't forget Adam, can we?
Did she borrow her wellies from Theresa?
Maybe she was prompted to put her name forward because she's called LEAD SOM(E). Can't think of any other plausible reason.

  1. May and the other woman remind of the documentary I saw recently. It was about female guards at Belsen. They exude the warmth of a fridge.

    Gove is the Murdoch candidate.

    1. LOl Yes. I get the impression that there is not an ounce of compassion in May. I've never heard of the other one, but a friend who knows more about Tory politicians that I do (or want to) says she might well be called Andrea Loathsome.

      I'd much rather the turtle than Govey. His connections to the Dirty Digger and his Boss's connections to Paul Dacre, present a poisonous concoction of hard right nonsense.

      Maybe we'll all receive King James Bibles from him with his name right next to God's.

  2. Are the boots designed to catch the attention of Whippingdale or Gidiot?

  3. Does anyone else think that Gove, like Broon, only got married to hide his true sexuality?
    Nobody gives a shit nowadays in Scotland, but maybe becoming Prime Minister of the UK is different?

    1. He's not one of the people that I've thought that about Jutie. Could be true I suppose. What was it his wife famously said about their physical relations... I've genuinely forgotten, but it was less than flattering.

      But it's more sad than anything if he felt... if any of them felt... that they had to do that, and it's a bad reflection on British society.

      To me it's an irrelevance, along with colour of skin, language, religion, and so much else, but it does say something about Scotland that Ruth, Kezia and Patrick feel no need to hide their sexuality, and it says something encouraging about their parties (yes, even the Scottish Tories ...or Ruth Davidson party) that they have chosen them as leaders.

      We seem to manage race, religion and sexuality rather well in this country.

      As for Britain, they had Ted Heath... but then maybe back then no one even dared presume anything about people in their position.

      I'd never understood the narrowness of attitude of the Brit Establishment, but I suppose the revelations of recent years have shown why they would have to appear to be "cleaner than clean" image wise.

    2. The man who is more or less responsible for the UK - James VI, was another. So why so ashamed?

    3. Was he? I'd no idea.

      He wasn't much of a king was he, PS?. Off at the first opportunity for sunnier climes and a better climate. Wee rat... But that's royalty for you.

      I do;t think anyone should be ashamed of their race, colour, creed, sexuality, gender, disabilty or any other thing about themselves...

    4. Haven't heard that about Gove. Hullo, James Naughtie. Aren't Hague and Coe a couple? And what have they got on Boris Johnstone to make such an attention seeker pull out?

      Delete
    5. LOL You are better informed than I am.

      There was, I think, some rumours about Hague and Coe at one time.

      But you can't believe everything you read in the tabloids...so I don't :)

  4. I would like to do two things.
    1. Make voting mandatory.
    2. Require that all ballots have a "None of the Above. Try me withn another list." as the last option.

    1. I'm not sure about making voting compulsory. It smacks of authoritarianism. against which I've fought, often with bad results for me, all my life.

      But certainly I agree with the second proposal. It's ridiculous to be given 4 or 5 choices, often of people you would cross continents to avoid and no other way than a spoilt paper to protest.

      Delete
    2. I am absolutely in favour of compulsory voting. Some people don't go out vote and then have cheek to complain. I don't think it is the slightest bit authoritarian but the again I'm Asian :P

      Delete
    3. then* [dammit I am sleepy already]

      Delete
    4. Oh I've always said that they have absolutely no right whatsoever to complain. I've told people that too.

      Shut up moaning and vote.

      But in fairness in a first past the post system there are times when voting is a waste of time. if you live in Richmond and vote Labour you might as well have stayed at home, and by the same token if you live in Doncaster there's not a lot of point in being a Tory.

  5. My wife used to draw gallows and write "None of the above" back in the days when SNP candidates were few and far between.

    It's so much easier now.

    I would definitely put "None ..." on the ballot paper. If that gets greater than 10-15% another election with different candidates is run.

    1. LOL. I suppose it's more polite than what some people write/draw on papers to show their disapproval. The good Rev for one!!

      I think it would have to be greater than 10-15% though, because some candidates will get 40 or 50+% swamping the "none of the above".

  6. Theresa May? Who the hell pulled that stake out of Thatchers chest cavity ( I assume there wasn't a heart there )?

    Hahaha. The captcha was popcorn pix.

    1. She seems to me to be a reincarnation, except of course that she's far too old for that.

      She must have made a study of her cold heartedness. probably has a degree in it.

  7. Jesus Tris. The Pirelli calendar pictures have really went down in quality.

  8. Stephen Crabb is a truly disgusting man in my book. Links to gay-to-straight conversion therapy, opposed equal marriage and is linked to the ultra-homophobic CARE organisation.

    1. Didn't he say that all it would take was prayer?

      Loonie, fortunately with about as much chance as I have of getting the job.

      Unfortunately tradition has it that other contestants get reasonable jobs in the cabinet. Let's hope it's not W+P becasue he seems to think that you should be out there working hard if you have Parkinsons. As someone know knows a Parkinsons sufferer I'd suggest he rethink that.

    2. Northern Ireland when Mrs May gets rid of the Human Rights Act and has to renegotiate the Good Friday agreement, would be perfect for him. He could do some serious praying over that!!

      Wasn't the mass murderer of Orlando a homophone too? Whilst trying to pick guts up. The only people I've encountered who are so obsessed with homosexuality are homosexual themselves. Hi, Mr Crabbe.

    4. Ah well, who knows. It's not something I've given any consideration to, but could be...

    5. Sounds like a homophone, right enough.

  9. Having seen the shortlist, can we have independence now please? Nicola Sturgeon for PM sounds much better.

    I wonder what title the leader of Scotland would choose (First Minister, Chancellor, Priomh Mhinistear, Taoiseach?)

    1. She's head and shoulders above the contenders... and the current holder... and any of the ones that have dropped out.

      I think First Minister is fine as a title, but I like the Gaelic titles.

      Who we gonna have for President?

    2. Hint...Munguin fancies a move to Edinburgh.

  10. Is Michael Gove the creepiest Jock Tory since Michael Forsyth? Liam "Cocks" Fox comes close, but Aiberdeen loon Goveser wins hands down. Does he still have a future as one of England's most splendid?

    1. Well, that's a hard question, Jakey (love the name btw). There's Fluffy Muddle to be taken into consideration... then as you say Liam, but there are also some very creepy Holyrood contenders... Jackson Carlaw?

      Govey is a wee spook. He has always reminded me of a House Elf from Harry Potter... and not the nice one!

      We should probably have a competition... Like Miss Scotland only with creepy Tories... or creepy politicians in general...
