I’m looking at you Cunliffe …
Beware the Ides of March.
Et tu, Charles?
“You, too, Grant.”
Correction: “You, too, Brutus.”
“Trevor stop gnawing on Chauvel’s leg”
See … I enjoy giving myself and my party a uppercuts.

Hurry up and fix the edit function pls.
The prunes are finally working.
And we have a winner…
No idea why the toilet is mounted so high up the wall, but those bloody mango skins have gone right through me so I’ll have to use it.
Mmm, er, maybe, yes, no, er, um. Ask Trevor
I’ve been able to fit my foot in my mouth so getting my fist in there will be a doddle, easier than taking over the leadership thanks to the ABC lubricant.
Trev says I’m allowed to do this.
Thinks: If I adopt a thinker pose maybe no-one will be aware it’s really my constipated position.
In times like these only the most inarticulate, visionless, charisma-lacking, bumbling and ineffective Labour leader in history can smile like this.
A noted resemblance to Rodin’s The Thinker, sometimes humorously portrayed as balancing on a toilet seat, pondering how to proceed.
This is an electronic age ..
Just wait my impatient friends. When we act it will be well timed and decisive.
“If I sit here long enough without doing anything something usually happens.”
Couldn’t resist …
et tu, David?
A… Ac..tually it’s the dunces chair but don’t tell anyone.
A Camera! Great. Annette said I must imitate the statue and smile.
Maybe I should take my clothes off too. Will the tradesmen in the White Vans demographic find that ‘blokey’? Maybe I should check with
“I know how Caesar felt. Now, who’s the lean and hungry one?”
I crapped on myself in not giving Cunliffe a prime cabinet spot.
Fuck he’s bald
And the doll looks less wooden.
C’mon, Dave, shit or get off the pot!
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodus#Character_and_motivations )
At first glance the doll looked like goff
but then it turned out to be not
and dressed up like nero
while the labour party burns
it must be time for the bourgeoisie turds
Now I’m Caesar can we finally exile the PR guys and Mallard?
From up here i can see my caucus,the right ones are in that corner,and the left
ones are over there somewhere, I don’t think there is left or right in politics,but
we must stay on the ‘right’ track, so i’m told, ”hey Trev did you bring your
gumboots,i think i could be in the shit, Paddy’s here and i haven’t spoken to
him since the setup,you know the one”
Mi god1 I think I might be in a pub, with the unsanctified. Er, um now what do I do?
Ah! Mediate ,of course. That is always what I have done.
Sure beats the hell out of having to make a decision myself.
Let others decide.
Got a great view of Rome burning, from this seat.
“Hmm .. maybe I should adopt a Fabian strategy ?”
Fabius was well aware of the military superiority of the Carthaginians, and so Fabius refused to meet Hannibal in a pitched battle. Instead he kept his troops close to Hannibal, hoping to exhaust him in a long war of attrition. Fabius was able to harass the Carthaginian foraging parties, limiting Hannibal’s ability to wreak destruction while conserving his own military force. The delaying tactics involved a pincer of not directly engaging Hannibal while also exercising a “scorched earth” practice to prevent Hannibal’s forces from obtaining grain and other resources.
For more, see
but…isn’t a Fabian war of indirect attrition supposed to be directed at the Key Government, not your own officers?
That’s your particular construction CV.
Maybe the irony is just too subtle ..
Sun Wu (simplified Chinese: 孙武; traditional Chinese: 孫武; pinyin: Sūn Wǔ), style name Changqing (長卿), better known as Sun Tzu or Sunzi (simplified Chinese: 孙子; traditional Chinese: 孫子; pinyin: Sūnzǐ; pronounced [swə́n tsɨ̀]) – active as a general and strategist before he wrote the Art of War – relates in Shiji how execution of a king’s two favored concubines, to the king’s protests, caused a harem of 180 to perform their military maneuvers flawlessly.
Mark McNeilly in ‘Sun Tzu and the Art of Modern Warfare’ writes that a modern interpretation of Sun Tzu and his importance throughout Chinese history is critical in understanding China’s push to becoming a superpower in the 21st century.
Shearer must be pondering the same questions.
It’s a caricature making me look like a dim-witted citizen of ancient Rome.
Here’s me mugging for the camera in this little corporate kleptocracy.
I’ve just had a thought. If I addressed the plebeians in Latin would it really matter if I mumbled. Most wouldn’t understand me anyway.
Which one is hollow inside ?
Pass me the Herald quick, I am out of shithouse paper
