! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

    Parly Party!

    Have you seen what our illustrious leader has done?

    Said pass the budget or I quit and 60 of them, Labour, Liberal, Green, abstained :O

    If i did not know better, i think we will ‘ask’ for independence before we are ‘offered’ it!

    Jings, I wonder what colour my new passport will be?
