No, it's not one of 'those' Spam stories.
The Brown Gorgon's vacuous little helpers have been accidentally dropping a date of May 6th as the day on which he is due to experience his first election since taking over from the bulldog as the Face of Britain.
Blob Jobsworth dropped it most recently, but Bandy Burn'em dropped it last week and someone called Chris Bryant (who?) dropped it before that.
There are two possibilities here. One is that they really are all as totally useless and incompetent as they appear. A view I can readily accept, I admit.
The other possibility is that the Gorgon is frantically pumping to get an election sooner than that and the date is misdirection to make the Cameroids think they have plenty of time to campaign.
Sooner, please. Next week would be fine with me.
Prodicus is of the view that the Gorgon will keep his sticky fingers on the rods of power for as long as possible and won't let his election go off until the last minute.
The problem I have is that all three views are equally plausible. Then again, I'm not sure the final decision rests with the Gorgon. He might think it does, but I don't.
The Gorgon probably doesn't want an election, but there's a man behind him who might just force an election upon him.
(I'm channelling Benny Hill tonight, I think)
