Or a Knighthood for this thing, for services to clearing sinuses… Nose Picker to Her Majesty:
With thanks to Marcia, Tom, Vestas and David.
Thanks to Tom. (And possibly other Munguinites… I may have lost the place with the photographs over the last few days!)
MUNGUIN WISHES ALL HIS FRIENDS OUT THERE THE VERY BEST FOR CHRISTMAS
Special thoughts for any Munguinites who aren’t feeling too well (I know Panda Paws’ back is really sore, and Conan has some issues right now and Ed is undergoing some treatment at the moment). So to them especially (and any others not feeling well) a special thought from Munguin. (PS: Tris says Happy Christmas too!)
This is the pic John was trying to put up.
Sound like strong stuff. So strong Munguin thought about flying to Bulgaria to get some, but decided, instead, to stay where he was and simply send for some.
Mr Johnson and his girlfriend will be spending their Christmas and New Year break on the Caribbean island of Mustique, once frequented by the royal lazy tosser of all royal lazy tosser, princess (hic) Margaret.
“Sticking it to the elite,” one comment on Twitter read. “Our #PeoplesGovernment #PM will spend New Year with the masses in Mustique.”
I suspect that many of his new-found blue-collar Tories will be shrugging their shoulders and humbly saying that…” ‘ow as he’s a toff an’ all, gov, it’s his rightful due”.
I’m sure all those English people flooded out of their homes won’t mind one bit that he, with several homes provided at our expense, is off to luxurious sunshine.
After all, next year all the factory workers in the North-East can spend their redundancy money doing the same thing. What jolly hockey sticks!
And here’s a thing: All those flooded workers from ‘oop North’ can take comfort and calm themselves down by reciting the Illiad, in Ancient Greek… ‘μῆνιν ἄειδε θεὰ Πηληϊάδεω Ἀχιλῆο οὐλομένην.’ It works for the prime minister, why not for them?
I’m sure that you will all be hugely relieved to know that Prince Philip will be with the Queen at Sandringham for Christmas.
Recently, many of the lower end newspapers were praising HM for staying in London to run the country (yes, the Sun actually said that) while her ailing 98-year-old husband was in Norfolk resting.
That notion was kinda bashed on the head when a few days ago Liz took off for Sandringham… on the very day that Phil was brought to hospital in London (because presumably, hospitals in Norfolk are just not up to royal standards).
So it seems that it was less a matter of her selflessly staying in London and more a case of her doing her damnedest to avoid the old goat…althjough I can’t say I blame her.
True, true, Ruth.
You got out in the nick of time with some lame excuse about being too busy looking after your bairn to be doing all these surgeries and constituency work (although you do have time for making radio programmes and you wouldn’t have had time to be a PR consultant, if only you hadn’t been such bad news for the consultancy that was going to employ you).
So, no. You didn’t lose a third of your seats. or, indeed, any seats. You are but a humble constituency MSP.
But Jack the Car (you know, the one you said, only the other day, was doing such a cracking job), managed to lose a bit over half your seats…53.8% actually. So he did better at losing than Nicola, by some way.
Nicola, on the other hand, increased her seats from 35 to 46 (an increase of 31%) or 47 if you include the suspended-SNP MP who was on the ballot paper as SNP (an increase of 34%).
Nicola is now the one with 47 (or 48) out of 59 seats… and your lot are the ones with, erm… 6.
BJSAlba sent this, along with the comment she’d seen:
Banner: Democracy is the enemy of the people::Boris: Do you want total (hard) Brexit?
Thanks to BJS Alba for these
Thanks to John for the above… Et à Claudine pour ces caricatures françaises.
The police arrested me and said: “Papers”. I said “Scissors” and accelerated away. I think they must have wanted a rematch. They followed me for 45 minutes!
Thanks to David and Tom.
