Yup. :) The other morons are nicer.
Unfortunately, as Big D points out, this could leave the not-so-nice morons with a bigger majority.

Scotland play England in a World Cup qualifier at Hampden on the Saturday following the election. So that'll be interesting.

Ever feel like your in a box, you have the key to the box but your captor wants you to give it to them before they lock it down and padlock you in.
Not for any particular physical reason. It won't change your general situation, of the overall encompassing nature of your confinement.

But it's important for them to know that when they get the knife out, you won't scream.

For that, they need to feel justified. Yeah. I know where this is going.

Yes, this is what the country needs - more bank holidays!

Witless - but it still beats "finish privatising the NHS", which is what the Tories will do (although they are probably not quite stupid enough to put it in writing, in their manifesto).

Witless is certainly one word for it.


Meanwhile, across la Manche...

Actually they don't even "need" to feel justified. since, what you care about, it doesn't even matter to them.
They just want to have a justification.

...and this is where the ancient greek saying "settle for the lesser of the two evils"
meets the english saying "the lesser of two evils is still evil".

With all this turmoil across Europe, I also wonder about the process itself my friend. :?
