I’m already up later than I should be. I arrived at Local Gadget Shop at a quarter to eight this morning, expecting a 15 minute wait and therefore armed with sufficient ciggies and a can of chemical fizz. No bugger showed up until 8:20. Apparently I was supposed to be doing 8:30-10:30, not 8 – 10. Stupid bloody managers.
Okay. so what the hell is Cameron up to? Currently embroiled in rumours that the whole of Wastemonster is full of leering men who prowl the streets saying ‘Want to see some puppies, small boy?’, what does he do? He hides all his middle aged men and replaces them with young women. Priti Patel, okay, she has spoken some sense in the past so promoting her is a good idea. But what about Fester McFey? Nobody seems to like her very much. As for the swimsuit model (phwooar, but can she run a country?) and the apparently anencephalic lawyer woman who is Ozzy’s choice to help run the economy, what is their track record? Never heard of them. Is Cameron initiating a pogrom? Can’t accuse him of running a government of dirty old men if there are no men in it (he doesn’t count).
Then there is Wee Willie the Hague, who has announced that not only has he dropped out of the Cabinet, he is dropping out of politics entirely.
Some commenters have made the obvious connection even though there might not actually be one. Still, the connection is there to be made and many will make it. Will some of those now exiting in a hurry find that they are the scapegoats of the future?
Watch how fast you run, old white men. The mob is looking for runners at the moment.
