[sticky entry] Sticky: Introduction & Comment policy

Hello! There now follow some handy hints on how to make the most of your Reading My Blog experience:
  • If you don't like my colour scheme (I am aware that many people don't) add "?style=light" to the end of any url to get a different version.
  • If you want to know more about me, click here
  • If you haven't got a dreamwidth account you can still log in and comment or participate in polls with openID.
  • Other platforms I am active on are listed here.

Comments Policy:
  • Anonymous commenting is enabled, although anon comments are screened before publication; please, if you comment anonymously, give yourself a name/pseudonym/some form of identifier. If you don't your comment will not be unscreened.
  • I don't censor comments from people I know unless pushed VERY hard. Red lines include racism, misogyny, homophobia, unjoking advocation of violence, and being horrible about (or to) people I love. Anons tend to get a lot less leeway and a lot less benefit of the doubt; sorry. My blog, my rules.
  • If you want to point out cock-ups I have made, please direct them to Pedants' Corner; likewise if you want to ask me something off the topic of the post please go to this entry - this saves readers' scrolling fingers.

So, the next Prime Minister is going to be May or Leadsom

... and we don't get to choose, the membership of the tory party gets to choose.

I'm sorry, what did you say? All sound is being drowned out by the roaring flames of hell, and this handcart has incredibly squeaky wheels.

Margarine Thatcher

Saw somebody on twitter referring to Andrea Leadsom as "Margarine Thatcher". It may or may not have been intended to refer to this:



... but that's certainly what it made me think of.

You're semi-evil. You're quasi-evil. You're the margarine of evil. You're the Diet Coke of evil. Just one calorie, not evil enough.

A potential glee song, dedicated to Anthony M Blair

Sittin' in the defendant's chair
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watchin' witnesses in
Then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah
I'm sittin' in the dock in The Hague
Watchin' my lies peel away, ooo
I'm just sittin' in the dock in The Hague
Wastin' time

I left my home in Sefton
Headed into parliament
'Cause I had conflict to shill for
Looked like they were gonna vote my way
Now I'm just sittin' in the dock in The Hague
Watchin' my lies peel away, ooo
I'm sittin' in the dock in The Hague, wastin' time

Look like nothin's gonna change
Everything, still remains the same
I can't do what those Lib Dems tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same, yes

Sittin' here restin' my bones
And my guiltiness won't leave me alone, yes
Ten thousand miles, I roamed
Just to make this dock my home
Now I'm just gonna sit in the dock in The Hague
Watchin' my lies peel away, ooo yea
Sittin' in the dock in The Hague
Wastin' time

"Far from Satisfactory"

Obviously I have not read the entire Chilcot report - I suspect nobody except Johnny C and his proof-reader have - but my God the summary speech he gave was devastating. Forensic, clinically precise, utterly polite and brutal.

The fallout from this is going to go on a long long time. I only wish he'd lived to see it.
