Yes today the left of British politics have suffered a crushing bow. Education Minister Michael Gove has lost his job in Cameron’s reshuffle. As Gove was the primary target for the left’s irrational hatred and without irrational hatred the left have nothing in their weaponry, this is a massive setback with an election only a year away.
Other news from the cabinet reshuffle. Ken Clarke is gone. I put on the radio this morning to catch the 8:30 news bulletin and all I could hear was the sound of a pair of hush puppies slapping against the pavement as a portly septugenarian clutching an airline ticket for Cambodia ran for Heathrow, pursued by The Hounds Of The Morrigan*
Environment Secretary Owen fracking Paterson has been sacked after encouraging councils to ride roughshod over the democratic process in granting fracking permits to companies in which his family members have an interest.
Liz Truss has been promoted, presumably to give Cameron or Osborne some support. Esther McVeigh who I am aware of only because before she went into politics I once saw her cavorting about on a celebrity game show, filling a very tight pair of leather trousers perfectly. So what will she do in government? Do we need a minister for pert bottoms? I’d say yes we do, although I’d prefer the job to have gone to Cheryl Cole.
Esther McVeigh – will bring much needed gravitas to the government Source
Big surprise is the departure of William Hague. Was her really so deeply hurt when Boggart Blog said he looked like The Mekon in the Eagle / Dan Dare comic strips? Or is he jumping ship before the next batch of sexual misdemeanours come to light?
One amateur pundit rather unworthily suggested all this reshuffle proves is that having a pair of tits is now the best qualification for a top job. If that were true surely Katy Price would have been made Chancellor of The Exchequer. Sorry, what am I thinking, Ms. Price has shown a great deal of business acumen and proved her ability to manage money, she’s massively overqualified for the position. Sadly then George (Gideon) Osborne remains chancellor.
Kevin Brennan, Labour’s Shadow schools minister says that following the reshuffle every minister in the Department of Education was privately educated . Oh well, at least we can be sure they’ll all be able to read and write.
As someone who has often complained about the mealy – mouthed, politically correct equivocation of modern politics I have to celebrate the elevation of Claire Perry MP, the former City trader who led the Government’s campaign for filters on online pornography. Perry is said to have walked into a Commons tea room and asked the assembled stuffed shirts (the regular guys would be in the members bar): “What do I have to do to speak, give the Speaker a blow job?”
Ms. Perry must be in good physical shape if the thinks she could bend low enough to do that to Tyrion Bercow.
