those crewe and nantwich results in full(ish)

Filed under: just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 5:48 pm

well the crewe and nantwich by-election went precisely according to script as the beleaguered brown government suffered a fearful drubbing at the hands of a resurgent conservative party. the labour candidate, tamsin dunwoody, subdued at the declaration, did at least poll some votes and must surely have been grateful for the absence of her party leaders support.

imagine however, if you will, the scenes of tasteless jubilation in the blair household: gales of unbridled laughter broken only by the rhythmic popping of champagne corks as gorgeous cherie opens an entire case of ‘schadenfreude brut-de-brut’ with her teeth.

the atmosphere chez-brown, usually broodingly morose, is now by contrast, morosely brooding. you just don’t know what to expect when the great leader’s around!

suddenly, out of nowhere, the great man appears, looking for all the world as if he’s lost a by-election and found there’s another one on the way.

“gordon’s alive!” murmurs a junior gopher (noun: junior gopher number 10 pay grades guide “privately-educated, snot-nosed bag-carrier who wouldn’t know true meaning of socialism from a whole in the ground, on £50,000 a year for doing bugger-all“), in a pathetic, cod-brian-blessed voice, haplessly trying to lighten the mood.

“fuck off” says gordon, kindly, “you’re fired!”

meanwhile, back at new labour hq they’re assessing the damage. although many of his cabinet retain a modicum of credibility, having been largely prevented from straying into the choppy waters of public utterance for over 12 months, brown is now undoubtedly holed below the waterline, and shipping water at an alarming rate.

there’s no doubt at all that the typical voter was delighted to see the back of blair but it’s extraordinary how a combination of events, some outside his control, others hand-made by brown himself at 11 as well as at 10 downing street coupled with a growing body of evidence surrounding his character have left him as unloved as his predecessor in next-to-no-time. the peter principle in spades!

at least blair could manage a sincere (looking) smile: brown’s by contrast looks like the wolf in little red riding hood.

it can surely not be too long before a substantial cohort of labour members realises that this man is costing them their meal ticket and tries to do something about it before it’s too late.

but maybe it already is. still mustn’t snigger (much).

the mysterious disinterment of darryl hare

Filed under: just whinging,sport — anne thrope (miss) @ 1:54 am

the mysterious disinterment of darryl hare. what’s all that about then?

personally i’d have given him ‘out’. fair dinkum!

whilst there is no abundance of top-class cricket umpires, australia certainly does not have a monopoly in that area … (go directly to jail back where you came from: do not pass go wind, or judgement: do not collect $500,000).

err that’s it.

toodle-pip cobbers 😉

champions league final … moscow

Filed under: just whinging,politics,sport — anne thrope (miss) @ 1:39 pm

for those of you who have been visiting distant galaxies and haven’t heard about it, the football champions league final was played last night, in moscow. what’s that about then?

ok a couple of russian teams are allowed to be in the draw each year. i can see where you’re going here, ‘in the interests of fairness the venue for the final should rotate between the participating countries.’ so, in short then it was just their turn in the barrel.

all very fair and reasonable i’m sure. but what are the chances of a russian side ever being involved in a final? you’re saying “vanishingly small, surely”, and you’re right! for once 😉

so what, do you imagine might be the ‘carbon footprint’ of this ludicrous exercise: the two teams, managers, trainers, medics, bag-carriers and other ill-assorted hangers-on; 50,000 fans and god only knows what else being hauled to moscow and back? all this just to play football match which could have been accommodated quite adequately at a neutral venue in the uk, ‘the shay’, for example, at a fraction of the cost. the mind boggles. surely this is economic and environmental lunacy?

having said that, i remain to be entirely convinced by the so-called evidence about global warming, and more specifically the contribution of burning fossil fuels to the ‘greenhouse effect’.

but what do i know? if i was in charge we’d all probably go to hell in a handcart.

actually, i think i’ll set-off now.

ta-ta suckers.

crewe and nantwich

Filed under: just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 12:34 am

ah yes: crewe and nantwich, a (constituency) name to conjure with!

for the uninitiated this is the name of a uk parliamentary constituency, where in a few hours time, the polls will open in a by-election.

for donkeys’ years this was the spiritual and parliamentary home of the (apparently) redoubtable gwynneth dunwoody, and now extraordinarily, under the egalitarian auspices of new labour, it’s to be the inheritance of her daughter the (apparently) unredoutable tamsin (i kid you not) dunwoody.

in her/their dreams. the result of this by-election, brought about by the recent, unfortunate passing of gwynneth dunwoody, far from the expected seemless succession is in fact forecast to be a spanking by the conservative candidate, barrister and shoe-repair heir edward “the cobbler” timpson, whilst the tragic tamsin scraps for second place with a lack-lustre lib dem candidate.

how embarrassing, on all counts.

(i’ll bring you the actual result after it happens .. if i’m wrong i’ll eat my granny’s airtex vest)

that’s it for now, and it’s more than you deserve.

jacqui smith at the police federation

Filed under: just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:38 pm

yet another example of the brown government’s abysmal judgement was on show today as the home secretary confirmed her refusal to pay the police their independently assessed wage settlement in full.

it’s such a blindingly obvious tactical error one can sense brown’s own fingerprints all over it. just after the chancellor has incurred £2.7 billion in extra borrowings to settle the self-inflicted 10 p tax debacle smith looks more stupid than ever trying to sustain the silly argument that paying the balance of the pay award totalling about a fiver would fuel wage inflation.

well i grant you the police are paid more than enough these days but to invite aggravation from yet another group when you are already despised from all points of the compass is stupid beyond belief.

some arguments just ain’t worth the effort, and this is so oviously one of them.

stop digging, idiots.

england v new zealand 1st test result

Filed under: just whinging,sport — anne thrope (miss) @ 12:39 am

well i’m not gonna waste to much time on this, and that’s probably more than it deserves.

despite a reasonable start, due to a combination of bad weather and bad cricket this has finished as a lost opportunity.

although the opposition was the drink-of-water i suggested earlier the home side simply failed to take advantage and deliver the appropriate spanking. underperformance was noted in a number of areas, obvious examples being an uncharacteristically random effort by the usually sound sidebottom, who sprayed the ball almost anywhere, and a routinely dismal showing from pieterson who sprayed it nowhwere at all.

sadly, despite an outstanding performance with the bat, mighty michael vaughan failed to galvanise his troops in the way we have come to expect from him.

pieterson’s perfomance, by contrast was just what i had expected from him and if i were a selector i would have shown him the door long ago. in short: “lift your game, or leg it”.

over and out.

england v new zealand

Filed under: just whinging,sport — anne thrope (miss) @ 6:01 pm

so here we are again at the beginning of another english cricket season. our first international opposition this time is new zealand and thankfully, as i write this at the close of play on day two we seem to have made a reasonable start.

having said that, although they have occasionally had a reputation for punching above their weight the new zealanders are in reality just a bunch of no-mark australia wannabees. huh, in their bloody dreams.

well, let’s face it, if we don’t hand these also-rans the drubbing they deserve, what chance have we got when the formidable south africans arrive in july.

whilst all england supporters will be hoping for a good performance from the home side against the springboks, realists will be checking the condition of their tin hats ready for the onslaught from a side to which, in a similar way to the australians seem to treat test cricket just like they do the 20 – 20 game and generally get away with it.

but i’m forgetting for a moment, the mighty michael vaughan is now back in control of the home side. we may just humble these jonny-come-lateleys just for playing in our backyard.

note to (sir) geoffrey (that’s a one-day shot) boycott: the 1960’s were 40 years ago.

ta-ta for now.

pets as snackfoods

Filed under: just whinging — anne thrope (miss) @ 3:07 pm

main course and starter comfort food

i’ve been giving some thought recently to the tedious controversy over eating animals other than those typically to be found on the menu at the average suburban eaterie.

and frankly i can’t understand why, while almost everybody in the western world is happy to eat cow, or pig or sheep, most are likely to spit the dummy at the merest mention of for instance, horse, as a snackette.

by contrast, horsemeat is routinely eaten in many countries around the world. i myself thoroughly enjoy eating horse. as a matter of fact i had a pony for breakfast yesterday. very tasty it was too! reminded me of the old 1860’s tv ad: "go to work on a horse".

typically, however, guests seem to have more modest appetites, ‘oh i do love horse but i wouldn’t want to be saddled with a whole one’. so at formal dinner parties i’ve found the classic ‘pan-fried devilled ears with eyeball garnish’ very well-received as a starter, perhaps with a young, full-bodied new world merlot.

but as an entree, head-and-shoulders above all other cuts (including the head and shoulders … which by-the-way are excellent to pick at with your fingers as a midnight snack) is undoubtedly the hind leg, gently braised on the bone with shallots, bouquet garni and a little barsac, a treat denied to millions the world over, due in no small part to the improbably-shaped cooking pot required.

but the conundrum remains: if the horse is such an epicurean triumph why not try the family cat, or the children’s guinea pig, albeit the latter barely the makings of an appetizer for one? indeed why not? i’m game! (but let’s not stray onto game … an irresistible subject for another day … hmmm … i’m salivating just at the thought of it).

still having dallied into the enticing area of finger-food i’m not too proud to admit i’ve recently developed a bit of a taste for puppy. it’s just the thing when you get a bit peckish between meals. why only last tuesday i knew i’d be having a late lunch so i slipped out mid-morning for a young dachshund with a piquant garlic mayo in a crusty baguette, and a diet coke. yum yum.

so, in short, my advice is, don’t be too sniffy about what other people like to eat until you try it yourself. hell, the french eat frogs legs and there’s nothing wrong with them, is there?

just kidding! in fact i’ve been practically vegetarian for years. still, as they say, ‘a little bit of what you fancy does you good.’

anybody seen my night-sight?

later, muppets!
