A Polished Turd!

Quote of this week’s debates went to Conservative backbencher Steve Double. “This is a turd of a deal,” he intoned to the House of Commons, “which has now been taken away and polished, and is now a polished turd. But it might be the best turd that we’ve got.”

I wish I had thought of saying that! Poetry in motion (pun intended!) pip pip!


I have no idea what’s going on. Our glorious leader keeps trying To get her ghastly deal through. Another vote on it next week. ! My plan for a no deal exit has been voted down but we could still leave! What will the EU say? Or we could have a short extension? Or a long one! Crimes, we might not leave at all. What to do now? And we said it would all be easy!


So our glorious leader has lost again, in spectacular style.

What now? I sense my enthusiasm for “no deal” is not going to be supported in today’s vote, and then tomorrow all the feeble donkeys will vote to ask the EU to extend Article 50. But for how long? And for what purpose? Blowed if I know. This all looked so easy when all we had to do was make extravagant promises knowing we would never have to deliver on them. Why do I now have a sneaking feeling it’s not going to end well………

Its no deal for me

Looks like our glorious leader is about to crash and burn ( again). I have just told the house that we should can her proposed agreement for good and that “no deal” is the way to go. Don’t remember this being quite what we told the electorate pre-referendum but what the hell….

A useless foreign secretary!

No not me, but my successor, Jeremy Hunt. Did you see this week when he thought it appropriate to remind his hosts in Slovenia that they used to be a “Soviet vassal state” which seems a pretty stupid thing to do ( I would never have done something crass like that) even if it was true, but in fact it was simply wrong. Slovenia was part of the old Yugoslavia which was never controlled by the Soviet Union. He was presumably muddling it up with Slovakia which was once part of Czechoslovakia. Makes me look like a towering genius!
