Filed under: brevity,just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 3:49 pm

beware of greeks negotiating in bad faith with the charming angela and nicholas? surely not?

(can’t be bothered to crowbar-in olive branches or wooden horses, sozz) anyway here’s those proposed referendum options in full:-

1. bail out
2. bale out

wake me when it’s over 🙂

Liam Fox — just for fun

Filed under: brevity,just whinging,politics,sap of the month — anne thrope (miss) @ 12:22 pm

okay, let me riddle you a riddle.

how many ill-advised trips does it take to get from imbruglia to imbroglio?

wotjamean any clues? oh alright then

imbruglia: an antipodean popette/looker

imbroglio: a confused or perplexing political or interpersonal situation

obviously there’s no correct answer (yet) but give yourself a point if you said anywhere between 18 and 40.

jo coburn – bbc news

Filed under: brevity,doggerel,just whinging,tv — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:36 am

though oft in cold and winter gloom her
scripts suggest a sense of humour.
but the trick which seems to most enamour her
is pointing her left shoulder towards the camera.

labour leadership race latest – new entrant

Filed under: brevity,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 5:07 pm

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?

field of labour leadership candidates broadens

Filed under: brevity,just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 9:00 pm

so as the second miliband brother enters the race, the field of labour leadership candidates broadens; to two.

is it me or is there a whiff of star trek about these boys? whatever, in the spirit of x factor i’m calling them ‘edband’.

(not to be confused with influential 1970s electronic music duo Tonto’s Expanding Head Band … it’s easily done 😉

hot news — pm and deputy’s nickname

Filed under: brevity,politics,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 7:34 pm

okay, bagsy be the first to name our new dynamic duo

okay so there’s a hint of lingerie about it. give us a break! there’s only so much you can do here. i mean

cleggeron? … snappy eh! clemeron? cagg? … even nicer! davnick? camleg?
not improving are they?

i’m sticking with ‘caminick’ and taking the blame, erm i mean credit. unless of course you know better. 🙁

spot the scotsman

Filed under: brevity,just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 4:24 pm

just to pass the time whilst awaiting further tranches of cabinet appointments i’ve been playing ‘spot the jock’. (scuse i, scotsman)

not that i’ve got anything (well not much) against our celtic friends but you have to wonder, particularly in these days of devolved parliaments, what they’re doing around the palace of westminster. (candidly, i’ve recently heard it suggested that they should ‘stop their ticklin’.)

anyhow, as luck would have it, at a glance, the answer thus far seems to be ‘not much’. what a refreshing change!

of course there is bound to be the odd fly-in-the-ointment (or should that be fox-in-the-chicken-run?) but i’ll live with that if you will.

don’t mind if i do: gie’s a pint o’ heavy.

a new dawn has broken

Filed under: brevity,just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:41 pm

the bbc news commentator yesterday outside 10 downing street, waiting for new pm, cameron to arrive observed solemnly

“a new microphone has been put in place…”

how could one resist “… has it not?”

brown in the brown stuff again

Filed under: brevity,politics,sap of the year,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 7:36 pm

what a sad debacle brown’s campaign visit to rochdale turned into. better still it was all his own work.

boy but he’s a dismal, preaching, boring, self-satisfied arse! on top of that he’s got a face like a robber’s dog.

(oops, sorry if i said anything like that, i forgot i was typing. find me somebody to blame. oh and make a note so i don’t forget to rip her head off later. oops am i still typing? shit! again.)

i can barely wait for tomorrow. why? because if the charmer’s decades-long record for re-announcing stuff if any guide he’ll give us this screw-up over again until his already lousy poll rating goes negative.

go on, pretty boy. give us a smile.
