|A must buy tomorrow
So here is it.
I imagine that the first thing Liz said was: "Welcome my dear, I'm not elected either so we should get on splendidly." It was either that or: "And what have you come as?"
Seriously, I don't mean to be sexist, but if a male prime minister had gone to see the queen wearing something with big yellow patches on like bicycle paniers, I have the feeling he'd have been thrown out before he got anywhere near the old dear, for fear of frightening her to death. The other thing I noticed about he was that you could see half way down her cleavage. Also not likely, in a man, to get past the palace guards.
Really, a word to the wise, Tess, don't. Just don't. A man wouldn't get away with it, why would you? It's not clever and it's not nice. It's REALLY not nice.
|Erm, you're not serious George, are you?
You must've known Munguin was looking for jokes, yeah?
|Yep, that's the Foreign Secretary. No honest, it is!
The likelihood of getting a laugh at Maggie May, is, I'd have to say, rather slight. So I'm thrilled that Boris is replacing the most boring man in the world, Hammond, as Foreign Secretary. In this role, he will be able to trot around the world making an ass of himself to our mirth, pretty much 24/7.
It may frighten the living daylights out of his hosts, but let's be honest, better to be frightened to death than bored to death, Hammond's party piece.
|You mean the Brit Foreign Secretary is coming?
|We're the International Trade Department.
Do you want to buy some guns?
Amber Rudd, who recently said that she wouldn't trust Boris Johnson to drive her home (who would?), a venture capitalist and banker, is the new Secretary of State for Spying on People and Covering Up Establishment Crime. So now she has her own state limo she wont need a lift from Bojo.
David Davies is Secretary for Exiting Europe, another new department not previously required for obvious reasons.
And the Ministry of War is still to be manned by Fallon, presumably becasue he's good with leaky old nuclear submarines.
So that's Tessy done for tonight.
|One way of stealing the curtains as you leave.
|Aye, well, uh?!?
