Mandy, Harpy or Pratman??

20 posts in this topic

So who is currently in charge of the UK today?

Apparently that person who Jeremy Clarkson (alledgedly) calls a "cunt", Gormless Gordon has gone off to sun himself leaving the Harpy in charge - she then cocks it all up, makes a grab for fame and is frustrated by Jack Straw so flounces off on her holiday after making a load of headline grabbing feminazi statements leaving the country in the care of ......................................................??? exactly who Harriet??

Mandy is still on his hols (Albeit can it be a holiday for him without it being sponsored by seriously rich Russians and clandestine meetings on yachts?) and will not be back in the UK and at the helm (OK a Yottie joke) until Monday.

So who is in charge?

What happens when the Eurobuddies, M.Pervertz and Herr Ringbone try to invade again?

Who is watching Iran and their new President Iaminajam??

Who is running the UK this sunny weekend?

:(

this is the old myth that the government runs the country. People imagine gordy in his office pressing buttons on a james bond villian type control panel.

in reality, all the govt can do is pass laws which required parliament to be sitting. for the rest the country runs itself.

the recent credit crisis has told us that the less politicians interfere, the less damage they cause.

30+ years after Yes Minister and still people have no idea that the country is run entirely by civil servants. The politicians mere make policy, the don't carry it out. The CS carries it out.

If every single MP dropped dead tomorrow and we decided not to bother replacing them, the country would just carry on.

Probably right when you factor future electric for all that hot water in the saunas.

"There will be a shortfall—perhaps of as much as 20GW—which, if nothing radical is done, will have to be met from imported gas. A large chunk of it may come from Vladimir Putin’s deeply unreliable and corrupt Russia. . . . Other sources are unlikely to meet all the extra demand, leaving Britain in a position familiar to many of its neighbours: relying on Russia. It is not just that relations with Russia are at their worst since the cold war; Mr Putin’s crew seem more interested in terrorising their customers than developing new gasfields." (from this week's Economist)

Exactly, the whole thing is just another Daily Mail fuss over nothing. They're not happy unless they're causing someone somewhere to cut short their holiday (so they can complain then about the cost of them coming back early).

From recent experience, certainly no recent politician is, or is capable of running this country.

Say what you like about Winston, Harold W, Maggie or Tony, even if you didn't believe in their political views, at least you were under the illusion that they were in charge and running things.

If this country were a limited company, who would you like in charge, Sir Alan (now Lord Sugar), Richard Branson, or some other successful businessman.

I never trust politicians, they only say what they need to to try to get re-elected, but at least Winston, Harold W, Maggie, and Tony had an air of authority to them.

Who is running the country while Gordon is away, how about Del boy?

No, it's more a measure of their individual incompetencies.

Would you do this if you were running a corner shop? Of course not.

As regards Alan Sugar running the UK, FFS!! NO!!!!!

If you don't like Alan Sugar, how about Basil Fawlty running the country then?

It would make a good TV series !

At some stage quantitative easing will have to end and someone else will have to start buying gilts besides the Bank of England. They will dictate the terms under which they'll buy, because the UK is a forced seller

Now that is actually classic Mandy!!

Mandy and Brown are sworn enemies so in a stroke he is telling us that :

  1. Gordon really needs a long and good holiday
  2. Gordon cannot actually do his job
  3. Harpy and Gordon are incompetent about holiday cover
  4. Once again Mandy has saved the day

Yet another nail in Broooon's coffin methinks

Mandy for Queen anyone??

I'd go along with all of that, not sure about the Queen bit though.

Well if all the leading politicians are away on holiday, and Mandy is taking over as Queen, we should have Edmund Blackadder as PM, Basil Fawlty as Foreign Secretary, and Del Boy as Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Surely they can't make a bigger mess of things than the mob currently in power.

Quite. Me old Dad used to say that the best thing MPs could do would be to vote to double their pay & triple their holidays. The first would get all the useless bastards in one place & the second would give 'em less time to do damage.

Haven't you heard, New Labour dismantled the Civil Service, post Blair/Campbell the kants are trying to do it all themselves now, that's why we are in all this trouble.
