labour leadership race latest – new entrant

yes, just when you thought you were safe from plucky new entrants to the labour leadership race, word reaches me that a previously unknown brother has thrown his hat into the ring.

dark-horse steve millerband announces his audacious campaign, catchily straplined “i’m a joker, i’m a smoker, i’m a midnight toker” and looks likely to eclipse the lack-lustre efforts of his warring siblings in short order.

who’d o’ thought it?

excuse my absence

okay, so i’ve been sleeping on the job: what do you want me to do, take my personal property and leave the building? ;-(

alas and alack, it occurs to me that the duration of my silence has coincided almost precisely with that of the world cup.

well somebody’s granny (perhaps even mine) once told me “if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all”; so with england’s performance in mind i have taken that advice.

and i propose to keep it that way rather than think about it and risk being sick on my shoes.

get a grip losers.
