- I don’t think anyone has made me want to throw up more than work-of-the-devil David Cameron and I’m thinking particularly about when he was talking to the BBC today from China about the naughty students and the extremely brave police officers at Millbank during the student protests. Gawd, he is an unbelievably patronising git. As for that violence caused by a minority, as overblown as it is, the question has been raised – has this ignited a wider public backlash against the cuts in general. Who knows? But hey, who said students and young people were politically apathetic?
- It”s no secret that I am a nervy, jittery person and it doesn’t take much to make me all jumpy. Well the damned wind outside is proper spooking me out folks. The letter-box keeps rattling, my lounge door keeps blowing open and, in spite of the double-glazed windows, the silver metal blinds in my boy’s bedroom are blowing right out. It’s the work of the devil I tells ya.
- Those memoirs. There’s no way I will be reading George Bush’s feel-good book-of-love but I did just finish a book called The Help which was utterly unputdownable and highly recommended. I won’t say too much about it except to quote this line . . . Jackson, Mississippi 1962 – black maids raise white children but aren’t trusted not to steal the family silver. As for that other book – the work of the devil (probably literally!), like I said, I won’t be reading it – remember, I’m easily spooked, but I have read the news and I’m well aware of what he said about torture in the form of water-boarding having saved British lives but he fails to mention that his torture policies, hell, all of his policies, have put people in more danger than ever. Clearly there’s no limit to the man’s stupidity and inhumanity but enough about him. I won’t sleep tonight as it is.
- I don’t get the The Labour party. What are they playing at rebelling against the expulsion of Phil Woolas and his anti-immigrant rhetoric? We know they’re not doing it out of concern for Parliamentary sovereignty. They’re dividing themselves again. Are they trying to lose the next election? Woolas played the race card and lost. He pandered to the Daily Mailers and we all know that the Daily Mail is the work of the devil. Harriet Harman was bang on when she gave him the boot.
- Magnums are utterly yummy. And probably the work of the devil.
