  1. Did I ever tell you about my George W. Bush dream? Basically, he was a nice guy but we didn’t agree on things.

    The Daily Mail is trying to terrify its readers into turning out for May. I have a feeling that she’ll win but will lose seats and be mortally weakened.

    I’ll vote Labour by proxy in the safe Tory seat of South West Devon (a thankless, pointless tradition I have), and shortly thereafter will become totally disenfranchised. That is all.

    1. Bet you’re wishing Georgie boy was back now. Despite the Corbyn Kippers, I too think May’ll buck all that & be back with garlic & stake merchants in attendance. Good at defenestrating the relatives but no affinity with outdoors, whereas Jezza comes over quite well on The Street but hopeless indoors. If only one of them could at least stand up on their hind legs and perform, then maybe there’d be some fun in the offing.
