Controlled disclosure... very quick thoughts...

I’ve been busy during most of #piggate; and lets be honest no-one needs that in their mind for any amount of time. But, its got me thinking. Some have accused Lord Ashcroft of having a go at DC. But perhaps this is part of a larger strategy, to butter us up for whats next in Conservative leadership. If you like its controlled disclosure of what we can expect from the next leader.

Every time we get a two day story about “Dave” as a fairly obnoxious young man it anaesthetises us to and normalises Team Boris. For every day spliff there will be many other Boris bongs.. And the sooner we rationalise them away, because after all Dave is a decent bloke.. the less repelled we will all be when its not Dave at the helm in 2020.

#Piggate needs to not rumble on long. But lets remember that if we roll our eyes and cry “youth” for DC, we have to do it for BJ.. (if you’ll pardon the pun).

Not singing!!

I've snapped...

Reasons to Not Sing the National Anthem...
(none of which make you a national security threat)

1 You Don’t Believe in God
.. And so singing asking God to save the Queen is a bit odd.

2 You’ve watched recent Queen’s speeches
.. And so you are fairly convinced that she is saved and that we might do better praying for other people. In fact (as the Queen) you find yourself wondering why people keep praying for you to be saved when you are pretty rested in God's grace.

3 You’ve read the third verse
.. which is fairly abhorrent: even the royal website has dropped them!

4 You didn’t go to a posh school
.. and therefore like a whole generation of people you think you have a terrible singing voice and so don’t really do singing. It seems that people who went to posh schools were indoctrinated that they are wonderful so will sing even if they sound like water draining…

5 You’ve had a crazy few days
.. and so sometimes we all slightly zone out to try and get a bit of he…
