Things I learnt this week
In homage to the new chatshow with the welsh warbler...
The world is even more threathened by Republican evangelical Christians than I first thought. They are especially as Tony Robinson says so hellbent on bringing about the end of the world or at least another world war so that all the fully paid up members of their nutty sect can go to heaven ala startrek transporter while the rest of us get to die as the infidel sinners that we are. Barmy or what
After not going running for 2 weeks, deciding to do 10 miles in one go, 2 miles more than my previous record isn't the smartest idea in the world but still a remarkably more useful contributuon to the sum of human knowledge than the deluded fantasies of the fat yank god squad bridge. On the plus side I did get to see a Heron on the way as well as very sore legs.
Throwing plant laden flower pots that then smash into smitherines feels really good
The length of the Labour Party deputy leadership ballot paper is to be measured in Milibands i.e the average height of David and Ed; about 6ft ish. As things stand at the moment we are looking at a 3.4 Miliband ballot paper although the sole remaining Labour MP who isn't running is trying to get some backing. David Cameron is already entered as he seeks to be the heir to Blair.
A Very Special Relationship
The special relationship is an important and necessary part of British foreign policy but until now we had no idea just how special it is. And to think that it could all be comming to an end. I don't know who created it but get them a TV show.
The King is dead, long live the King.
If someone had told me 6 months ago that Tom Watson would resign in protest at Blair's leadership I would have told them to get their head examined. The fact that he has now gone and done just that means that Tony Blair's premiership is recieving the last rites.
