Yabba Dabba Doo

After the Nantwich and Crewe by-election result, the great Bogeyman seems to be presiding over the terminal decline of the Labour Party. It does not matter if people voted for Boy Dave Cameron or not (and I suspect an increasing number did), the main point is that they did not vote for a NuLabour apparatchik of the worst kind.

Roll on the General Election. There are still many things wrong with the Tories, but at least they appear to be on the same planet as the rest of us.

A great shame

On Sunday, in the Premiership semi-final, Danny Cipriani, the up and coming Wasps and England fly half, received an horrific injury when he was double tackled and the maul fell on top of him. He suffered a fracture dislocation of his right ankle, which is immensely painful and takes a long time to heal, even with immediate and specialist medical attention. This means he is out of the Premiership final and the forthcoming England tour. I hope he recovers as quickly as possible, and is back playing the game once he is ready.

When I played Rugby, many years ago, a friend of mine suffered a similar injury. It was horrible, as his foot was almost pointing backwards. He never played again, but he did take up refereeing, and pinged me many times, the bastard!

My best wishes goes to Danny and all others injured playing this most beautiful of games.

Labour's new mantra

AFter all the gerrymandering of the last decade, I think it is time that Labour had a new mantra. No longer is it "From each according to his means, to each according to his needs" (which, although well-meaning, is a load of tosh) but should be "From each according to what we says his means are, to each according to his vote!"

I hate socialism, but I despise New Labour

The beginning of the end for El Gordo.

Let us hope that the recent results in the local and London mayoral elections mark the beginning of the end for the snot-gobbling Scottish bogey man and his evil cohorts.

The trouble is, while the Conswervatives will undoubtedly do a better job of running the country and its capital than ZanuLabour, they are hardly the eurosceptic, tax cutting party that this country needs to regain any chance of being successful again.

Still, isn't it wonderfully ironic that some countries celebrate May 2nd as St Boris Day? Maybe this should be the early May bank holiday in the UK from now on!
