Push the button




"Will you walk a little faster?" said a whiting to a snail,
"There's a porpoise close behind us, and he's treading on my tail.
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle – will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the dance?


  1. Sometimes Niko believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Usually to do with Labour.

  2. ...and when they were about Labour, it turned out they had actually happened...

    1: Buttongate;
    2: David Miliband, who couldn't even beat Ed Miliband, making a come back;
    3: Neil Kinnock... Sorry I mean the Noble Baron Kinnock of Splash on the Seashore... nothing about him, just Neil Kinnock. I mean if that's not unbelievable I really don't know what is;
    4: Autonomy, even on reserved matters (thought it's actually illegal;
    5: Devo Max and the Clunking First wearing out a carpet;
    6: And this is the most weird and unbelievable... Owen Smith! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha...

    yeah i believed you were a nice guy

    Neanderthal snp nat extremists bah and baah !

  4. Have you seen this?

    Any thoughts?

    1. In a way he was right to delay, or at least try to delay it.

      It will only end up with more tensions, and technically, under the electoral commission rules, it is not allowed.

      You can't go into a general election under the the same banner with different policies.

      If English Labour says that their policy is to maintain nuclear deterrent, and Scottish Labour says that it wishes to get rid of nukes (the current position) how can they go into a GE each spouting that they will do different things?

      It might satisfy Kezia for the moment, and shuch critics who say that Slab is just a branch office, but the truth is that, unless they register as a separate party, they MUST go into the GE with the same policies.

      It will blow up in their face at election time, mark my words.

  5. Kezia Dugdale. Leader. Fnarr fnarr.

    Is Kezia Dugdale's job title Professional Thinker? Is she on an hourly rate even if she just sits vacantly looking at a pencil case? Or maybe she's on piece work or commission and gets a fixed rate per thought. Do we know the going rate per notion? And does a theory bring in more than an idea? Can I get a job like that?
