    What ho? What if?

    Hello-Hurray - it's the price to pay to the Eton Rifles, Eton Rifles
    Hello-Hurray - I'd prefer the plague to the Eton Rifles, Eton Rifles

    Interesting to see that Stephen Frears and Michael Seresin both worked on If

  • Speaker: A Disorderly Brexit,

    Great gimbling Slytherin toves!
    Or is it just that the UK is going through a 'bad spell'?

    I can detect strong whiffs of 'Confundus', 'Flipendo', 'Expulso ', 'Stupefy ' and 'Obliviate'!
    They desperately need a 'Reparo' and 'Ennervate ' cast soon!

    truly Poe-faced?
    I note that the National Party Drama Society are rehearsing their play ‘The Masque of the Red Death’ at the Chateau on the Park in Chchch at dusk this evening (July 1st)

    The story takes place at the castellated abbey of the “happy and dauntless and sagacious” Prince Prospero. Prospero and 1,000 other nobles have taken refuge in this walled abbey to escape the Red Death, a terrible plague with gruesome symptoms that has swept over the land. Victims are overcome by “sharp pains”, “sudden dizziness”, and hematidrosis, and die within half an hour. Prospero and his court are indifferent to the sufferings of the population at large; they intend to await the end of the plague in luxury and safety behind the walls of their secure refuge, having welded the doors shut.

    Interesting to note this is only National’s 80th annual conference, while this is The Labour Party’s Centenary Year – a light they seem hellbent on hiding under a bushel – all we have to show for it is this very relevant tea towel – they are gonna need more than this to clean up at the next election!!

    the faraway Farage farrago...

    the Bullingdon playbook: you break it and someone else has to fix it.

    ...and Johnson does look like someone who "has never had a 'real job' in his life"
    - Who's laughing now?

  • Speaker: The Government you Deserve,

    Now we know what happens when a 'car-chasing dog' catches one...
    - Boris Johnson has backed off running for the Tory leader/Prime Minister position
    http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/europe/81646189/Boris-Johnson-I-have-decided-not-to-run-for-British-Prime-Minister
    that saves the world from the possibility of two muppet lookalikes running two former great powers - UK avoids a BJ, but the USA may still get a case of the DTs...

  • Speaker: A Disorderly Brexit,

    Alas in wondering land...
    Man, that Farage is a graceless oik (after watching his taunting tirade in the European Parliament in the last few days - the soccer hooligan party) and Cameron calling for Corbyn to stand down - when did we pass through the Looking Glass?

  • Speaker: The Government you Deserve, in reply to Nick Russell,

    At least they admit it in Britain…

    ... and enquire as to whether one knows one's place!

    Saying there is “some constituency” that doesn’t support him is a massive understatement. At the last count I think over 40 of his MPs resigned from shadow cabinet/spokesperson roles.

    One gets the impression that many of these new 'Labour' MPs don't have a hell of a lot to do with their constituents or local party members. Blair created a lot of wannabes...
