British Constitution: a guide.

One of the highlights of my week is my journey home of a Wednesday lunchtime when Prime Minister’s Questions is on the electric radio. I usually react to this celebration of the pinnacle of the democratic process by switching it off and listening to some music. For those of you unfortunate enough not to live in the UK here is how it works. Once a week the Prime Minister (Slimy Dave) answers questions from fellow members of parliament. The questions alternate between his own party and the opposition parties. A typical session commences something like this:

“Would the right honourable gentleman care to take advantage of the opportunity to answer this fatuous question by blaming everything bad that has ever happened on the previous government?”

The next question is of the form:

“Would my right honourable friend care to lean forward a little further so that my tongue can reach the other end of his digestive tract?”

Today on my return journey George Total Twat Osborne was taking the opportunity to fill the airwaves with his fanciful and mendacious bile.

I listened to Frank Zappa instead.

Introduced so that the 72 year-old Gladstone could have a nice rest, and only turn up at a time that suited him.

We're Only In It For The Money?

I seem to have attracted those of a cynical persuasion.

Richard said...

Don't worry, Gideon blamed the last lot, as per.

Dave said...

Ironically, I was being reasonably correct.

And the Leader of the Opposition attempts wit, and that's deeply embarrassing because he can't do it and is surely losing votes by the minute, as is the Government. The whole thing is awful, I never listen to a minute of it until later news broadcasts catch me out.

Vicus Scurra said...

Richard. I was not worried, but thank you for your concern.
Dave - you are quite correct and thank you for delivering of your erudition.
Zoe. He didn't did he?
