Lovely. It reads even better down here in the Smoke. I'm beginning to get back up to speed with politics North of the Coldstream again.Great work Conan subtley brutal.
The Marquee de Sad - a temporary erection. Superb!
Conanmagisterial! The "Marquee de Sad" and the last bit about the keyboard had me chortling long and hard. I really do think the collected "Hootsmons" series needs a much broader distribution -- a velvet smooth satire wrapped in a big clunking comedic fist.
GREAT one, Conan! Marquee de Sad. LOVE IT!*snort snort* Temporary erection.
Conanwith your permission, Marquee de Sad is too good, I am going to use on ScotsmanPS - i take credit for "erection" aspect of New Labour tax payer expense sleaze : Jim Devine - shelves, Ian Grey - tent, Jacqui Smith....So will continue to use, lolAll hats off though, the Hootsman is outstanding
Me too. I love the Marquee de Sad. Just brilliant.
Tryin to think of another word for brilliant but can't. The Marquee guilty of loitering within tent - marvellous!
Is this the "big tent" Government Brown was trying for?
Thanks again folks.I wonder what Straw is hiding in his refusal of the FOI request for the minutes of the devolution cabinet meeting...
That is a tremendously interesting question.
Conan, yes who's he covering for? Any idea who was present at the cabinet meeting?
