Re: Do as I say... 'Political'

Ha ha, I've just this very moment signed the petition before coming here. This is the comment I made in support of the petition:-

"Okay, yes, why not. Obviously it's a bit tongue-in-cheek and never going to happen, but it does give us the opportunity to declare our utter dislike and rejection of this man and his policies. He must rank as the worst PM in living memory (and my mother who is 88 endorses this), worse even than Tony of the Blair Rich Project."

It made my day!

No point the Spanish would let him in and the French would put him on a truck and send him back!

No wonder he wants us to remain in the EU.

Re: Do as I say... 'Political'

The major problem I have with politicians is, that even if thrown out of office they have a golden handshake to help them on their way. Worse still, is that even as a total waste of space as a PM, they have the PM's wage packet for life.

After secret talks with GB, call me 'Dave' has already intimated, that once out of office, he too will stand as an MP. Given his ongoing record of failing to make good at almost every promise he made, I reckon the proverbial snowball in hell has a better chance of success.

Re: Do as I say... 'Political'

As long as he takes the other 649 with him.

Then if we vote to leave the EU in June the arrangement can be made permanent.

To be fair he probably booked his air tickets with Ryanair or Thompson months ago, so we couldn't expect him to cancel his foreign holiday now.

Re: Do as I say... 'Political'

Just received an email update that indicates more people have now voted to keep 'Just call me Dave' out than voted to get the toe-rag into office. Sad, isn't it, that what has now quite possibly become a majority vote, will be dismissed out of hand. Still, it's nice to know that in a democacy, the minority vote always takes precedence.

That's unfair to Gordon Brown!

I'm not sure about that John. There is stiff competition for that particular accolade.

Other than Gordon Brown, who I would put well ahead of DC in this poll, we have had 'Darlin' Harold Wilson, 'Honest Jim' Callaghan and Ted Heath.

Contrary to popular misconception 'Darlin Harold' could not walk on water, and indeed couldn't even swim.

Back in the days when Labour MP's mercilessly ribbed Ted Heath about his yachting exploits, 'Darlin Harold' fell into the sea whilst trying to board his private motor yacht in the Scilly Isles, but was rescued from drowning by a public schoolboy.

I gather his Head Teacher was not best pleased.

Bloody do-gooder's. The depth to which some people will stoop for a mere 15' of fame never fails to amaze me. I hope his mother gave him a damn good thrashing and taught him to better his ways.
