Special Ed.

Over at Counting Cats in Zanzibar, I read this quote from Moribund the Loser:

I see Ed as a special person to me.

And at once my somewhat twisted, alcohol, nicotine, salt, caffeine and fat-encrusted mind led me to a most interesting connection:

It is possible, you know, that one day this country will be led by Special Ed.

If it ever gets even close I'm off to somewhere more civilised. Somalia, perhaps. Or Bristol. Not much to choose apart from the fare.

Excellent video clip....

Just a quick word to let you know that I read your blog every day and appreciate your prolific blogging efforts and the sentiments embodied within them. Don't wish to get mushy here, just wanted to make sure credit is given where it is due.

Thanks for keeping it going and best of luck with your budding writing career. You are an absolute gem and deserve enormous credit for what you do so well.

In addition to the political commentaries, I thoroughly enjoy the insights into your biological activities.

Labour might get into power again, but it won't be Red Ed at the helm; just look at the history of the Labour Party. Since the days of Harold Wilson, there have been six Labour Leaders, seven including Red Ed. Of this motley assortment, only one has won elections; Tony Blair. For the most part then, Labour can be considered unelectable (and Blair only got in by managing to exert huge control of the media, something which bloggers these days would prevent happening).

The inescapable conclusion is that except in unusual circumstances the British electorate doesn't much like the Labour Party, and only elects it when the majority have forgotten how shite Labour were last time, and have no viable alternative, and finally can be effectively deceived into not associating the current Labour Party with the deranged socialists of previous ones.

To do this requires a shrewd and manipulative mind, coupled with great personal charisma and steely drive. Merely being a union stooge elected by default is, fortunately for us, merely a passage to a life in opposition.
