Labour Tits

And I'm talking literally; I'm not just being rude about someone. Behold the most popular options given when I recently did a Google search for former GMTV presenter and now Labour MP for Ashfield Glorio De Piero:

And So...

... it has come to pass that the Conservatives are back in Government, and with some Lib Dems as well.

Really odd feeling at the moment; slightly surreal and a slight sense of frustration that in the end coalition was needed. However, I'm of the opinion that with the harsh economic situation we face a minority administration would have been short-lived. Further, another election wouldn't have been held until the Autumn, and we would have had the Tories having to make very difficult decisions for six months and possibly getting the blame for it all.

Whether this blog continues depends on a few factors. It doesn't seem particularly useful to run a blog attacking the opposition, but if Ed Balls becomes its leader I can certainly see it continuing. So it will exist in hiatus, with a few updates, for the next few months - while I decide what to do.

Thanks to those of you who continue to read.

Quote Of The Day

From Aristotle at Political Betting:

"I’ve always thought it was considerate of Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper to have married each other, thereby ensuring that only two people get to live miserable lives rather than four."

Ugg, He's Smiling Again

You would have thought that after the weird smile when he came out of Mrs. Duffy's house, and the weird smile at the end of his closing statement during Thursday's debate, that somebody would have told Brown to stop smiling. Sure, they should have told him this years ago, but in the last few days even people who didn't really know about his odd smile have started to notice. And yet this was him earlier today. The look on Sarah's face is priceless. Picture from Sky.

Brown's Freudian Slip

Sky has the footage of Gordon Brown being heckled by a frustrated Labour supporter during his visit to a glass factory in Sunderland earlier today. They say:

"But the 38-year-old said he felt the Labour campaign was orchestrated and Mr Brown only spoke to party activists and did not get to talk to real people.

The IT worker, who comes from Sunderland but lives in London, said: "It's the fact that it's been such a controlled campaign.

Real politicians are going around talking to real people and Mr Brown isn't doing that. Mr Brown needs to see real electors, not just hand-picked people."

But because the focus is on the heckler, nobody seems to have noticed Brown's rather unfortunate misspeak around the one minute mark, where he says:

"So I have come here, to a region of fighters, to talk about the fight ahead. Not Labour's fight in this election, but our country's fight for recovery. Because I fight every minute of the day for my future... the future of Britain's hard-working families."
