Since the last one decended into anothe rbitchfight over Iraq, can we use this thread for discussing the election without mentioning the war?

I just got back from the polling station. Looks like a good turnout.

I want to know how it is doing

I would be really surprised if anyone but Labor got a significant vote

it seems like Labour has an even bigger lock there than the Liberals (or whatever) in Canada

We can't mention the war?

Don't want to upset the germans?

Right. This thead is now under the control of the People's Liberation Army, and the next stop will be Cuba.

EDIT: If you don't think I'm taking this seriously... neither are the BBC.

I like eggs. What kind of eggs do you like? Fried eggs are best, in a sandwich with lots of butter, and a bit of salt. Nummy.

2-0 so far to the reds

Make that 3-0 : all holds

first three seats back are labour

they will win, but they won't get the massive support they've had at the last two elections I reckon. I think the Lib Dems will do well too

So did you all finally dump Blair? He's almost as unpopular as Bush.

Oh I see on a new advert that is looks like he will win again. It would be his 3rd term. Do you have term limits too?

He's promised to retire after this term anyway.

we dont have term limits. Supposedly, Blair promised no10 to Gordon Brown if it went to a third term, but then when they got in he revoked it because he'd had his fingers crossed behind his back or something

No bacon?

No, if you add bacon, it ceases to be a sandwich (or as my dad calls it, an egg banjo) and becomes breakfast, in which case you'd best fry the bread too.

The poodle is back in with a reduced majority.

Still one consolation, the ID card supporting irritation in my constituency is out on her arse.

The media seem to like Galloway because he has a very forceful personality. Whether his victory in that seat is good for anybody except himself is anyone's guess. It was a torrid campaign in that constituency.

Poor George Galloway- so full of self-righteous he couldn't stay to answer any questions from the Iraqi blogger Salaam Pax, who at least had lived under both Saddam's regime and Allied bombardment.


I always wondered if George thinks it's a crime for the Allies to kill Muslims, then didn't he think it was a crime for Dear Leader Saddam to kill Muslims in the Marshes and Halabja and Iran ?

And if so, how could he bring himself to crawl up Saddam's bunghole so publicly and flagrantly, all but bestowing a RESPECT blowjob on him when they met ?


Yet another step towards confirmation that some politicians are the lowest form of life.
