I moan about cloud and it disappears! Hurrah! I have also been vindicated in my claim not to be anti-English, merely anti-smug sports commentator. There was a bit on the Scottish news earlier this evening about the Scottish national anthem which noted that the Commonwealth team having been standing about to 'Scotland The Brave' whilst the rugby team favour 'Flower Of Scotland' . I have no idea who the git reporting was but he ended his piece by saying 'it seems the only thing our sports teams can agree on is winning gold' at which I bellowed 'I hope they start losing you smug wanker' just the same as I do when similar levels of smugness are displayed by English commentators. Sometimes I only switch the TV on for the pleasure of shouting at it.
Anyway they went on to interview various members of the public about what they thought should be the national anthem. They then featured a frankly spine chilling interview with some obscure MSP who put forward the view that parliament should choose the anthem. O dear God no! Surely there must be some obscure EU law to prevent this. What about human rights? Can you imagine what that shower would choose? If the levels of judgement they've displayed during the 'wonky parliament' national embarrassment are anything to go by, they'd probably commission Gary Glitter to write something about 'loving children'. Then get Lulu to perform it. Naked with The Krankies. It's terrifying and we must not let it happen.
I'm also disappointed that the police have got involved in all this cash for peerages business. Why couldn't they have held off until I had my £100 bribe ready? Only a week later and I could have been 'Lady Clairwil', taking tea with the Queen and getting to the bottom of which one of them killed Diana. It's bloody typical of the establishment they get a good scam going and the minute ordinary members of the public try and get a slice of the action they shut up shop. Wouldn't it be hilarious if Blair was led out of Downing Street in handcuffs? Not that it's very likely. Could you imagine that twat in jail?
Anyway, must go there is butter on my keyboard and my fingers keep slipping.
P.S What in the name of God is this?
