    Best post here for some time.

    Shows Key to be a strong and decisive leader (maybe that wasn’t intentional)

    Can’t wait for the one about minsterial overseas trip guidelines….who hands out the wet bus tickets ?

    The scary thing is this is probably exactly how it went down with these learn on the job clowns……Douglas is simply there to line his retirement fund as he’s finally discovered (takes a bit longer to sink in at his age) their moronic frontman can’t be controlled, doesn’t listen and thinks he’s infallable…..he’s in very good company in that coalition.

    *is mightily impressed*

    [Can we get the author producing some topical, funny political satire on TV? It’s been a long drought since “McPhail and Gadsby”…]

    Completely f***ing hilarious, except Garrett would have been at the pub at the time, replaced in dialogue by Boscawen who would have been in Douglas’ office sitting next to him.

    Now theres a thought..government and party plotting by Facebook, who needs Parliament…oh hang on, the journos wont like it; obsolete!

    Actually quite good.

  19. mike 22

    That is very good…. for a humourless pinko blogger 🙂

  20. Well done, you *do* have a sense of humour after all.

    The comment about Roger lining his retirement is pushing it a little, esp as you have that godawful Anderton still hanging about like a very bad smell. 😉

    Seems we have a cross party consensus on this.

    Great post. Made my day. Really.
