So where are the 'Leaders' then to replace the current wankers. where have they all gone those figureheads and characters of yesterday.
Who would you put in your government 'fantasy football team' to lead us out of oblivion.
There's not a lot to choose from no matter who your party is. David Milliband left a long time ago, Andy Burnham has sought sanctuary in Manchester, Jess Philip's time has yet to arrive, Sadiq Khan is busy with London, Lindsay Hoyle is the speaker, I think Hilary Benn is not interested,not sure if Harmen or Cooper are still involved. Other names worth a mention are Kinnock Jnr, Chakrabarti, Rayner & Kendal
I'm not as well versed with the Tories so I will give that some more thought before replying but a certain Jeremy Hunt is conspicuous by his current absence and is no doubt revelling in Boris's cock ups

Jeremy Hunt?

When it comes to making schoolboy jokes by changing the odd letter here and there, is Jeremy Hunt the politicians answer to Dutch footballing icon Willy Van Der Kerkhof? :text-woo:

Roughly translated, Willy van der Kerkhof means:

Willy from the graveyard.

My all-time favourite Netherlands footy players were Hertz van Rental, and for the women's side, Avis van Hire.

Saruman refusing to leave Orthanc, accuses Ents, Hobbits of ‘stealing’ Isengard

Saruman of many colours and his chief of staff Grima Wormtongue have pledged to start legal action against Treebeard today, after they blamed the fall of Isengard on ‘cheating’.

The leader of the White Council has refused to even consider leaving his tower and claims victory in his recent battle with the Ents, despite having watched his goblins being stamped on, squashed to mush and hurled bodily over the walls with his own eyes.

Calling Treebeard ‘Sleepy Fangorn’, for his slow manner of speaking and habit of nodding off for several hundred years at a time, Saruman said that diverting the river and washing all his orcs into a pit was against the rules and intended to bring a lawsuit to overturn the result.

You really expect me to believe that two hobbits managed to muster an army of Ents when they couldn’t even get three hundred attendees to Bilbo Baggins’ birthday party?” said Wormtongue in a statement over Palantir.

They lacked Saruman’s energy. He was regularly pulling crowds of ten-thousand Uruk-Hai to his rallies so where did all these so-called ‘Tree Shepherds’ suddenly come from out of nowhere?

And the names these hobbits use – ‘Meriadoc’, ‘Peregrine’. They’re obviously fake, and probably foreign. Are they even eligible to tear down the walls of Isengard and douse the great furnaces? We deserve to know.”

Many of the free peoples of middle-earth are understood to have been broadly supportive of Saruman until more than 200,000 trees were chopped down to support the economy.

A wizard should know better,” we were told.

If you look closely at the No 10 org chart you'll see that he is a direct report of the Head of Implausible Claims who in turn reports to the CPO*
