Oink!


Oh dear! When I started this blog I promised myself that I would keep it light and avoid matters political as far as possible but this is irresistible.
Mr Speaker in his infinite wisdom has appointed a panel of senior MP's to look into the present unpleasantness as regards MP's expenses/the employment of relatives etc.
One of the distinguished gentlemen so appointed is a certain Sir Stuart Bell. He formerly employed his son Malcolm (then 19) as researcher. Unlike some apparently, Malcolm certainly turned up for the job. The proof is that he stole 4 cheques from George Galloway's office and used them to obtain over £2,000 worth of assorted goodies. Now I have no axe to grind against Malcolm who may well have been young and foolish and undoubtedly paid the price (he went inside), but his dad as the right man to sort the present unpleasantness out?
Hmmm...

That's just the problem with kids - the parents are eternally responsible for their actions, even when the little darlings have reached retirement age; the kids on the other hand, are in no way responsible to/for ( the actions of) their parents.
I am of the opinion that this thought should provide prospective parents with the ultimate contraceptive.......

Sir Stuart could have solved the issue with the wayward son at an early age by taking him to the local garage, inserting an air line in to his rectum and inflating aforementioned scallywag with 500p.s.i.

He would not have been able to use the cheques as he would then have been too rotund to fit through the door of any shop...

Of course, hindsight is a marvelous thing...
