Dear God,

Save me from this utter shite.

Wish I'd never mentioned her name now.

Excellent timing Tom. 4 minutes in she mentions improved flood defences.

I managed 9 minutes.  The Yorkshire Tea segment did for me; it wasn't what she said, it was the look on her face.   She is a shining light amongst Tory women though.  I haven't seen much of Esther McVey in this campaign; has she not been on Lorraine Kelly's show recently?  Probably for the best if she is shunning the limelight.

Who do they think will be impressed by this oh-so-obviously staged photograph?

Picture the scene, as the cameraman (or woman) says "right, all stare at Liz, and Liz, I want you to stare at the camera & put on your gormless look, ok?"

I’ve thought about it a lot and I *think* the thing about this photo that annoys me the most is that she’s the only one wearing a poppy.

‘Quick, someone get her a poppy!’, bellows the spin doctor. ‘We can’t allow a photo to be taken in November sans poppy. It won’t play well with Workington Man if she’s snapped without a poppy!’

‘I’ve got one, use mine!’ screamed the intern, bumbling forward to present a crumpled paper poppy they’d paid a pound for that morning.

‘We can’t use that! Look at it’ chastised the spin doctor as the intern faded back into the walls. ‘We’ll have to photoshop one one’ came the edict.

‘What about the others?’ questioned the graphic designer?

But the spin doctor was already gone. Andrew Bridgen had opened his mouth again and he was needed for damage control.

A close second to the poppy thing is the Shisha pipe and plastic wine and shot glasses in the background as if a single Tory MP has ever used a single on of them.

Why does that bother you? Are you short of things to be bothered by?

Anyway, I’m sure there are many Tory MPs who have used a Shisha pipe. Obviously without inhaling though.

Your usual bollox.....as a clear tory person and person that’s has many tory friends (amongst others) I can think of loads of times I’ve used plastic wine and shot glasses. You make it sound like their existence revolves around drinking out of crystal ffs...... 

Trust me, I have plenty of champagne socialist mates that would turn their nose up at plastic glasses faster than me.......

Tories pledge this, Labour pledge that...  Does it really matter what they pledge? No one believes anything they say
anyway.

There is a real buzz about the lectrics party in this election.

Baroness Warsi has been on fire over the last couple of days on Islamophobia.

You know that enquiry into Islamophobia that was promised by Johhnson; presumably it is going to start when the enquiry into Russian Interference in elections is released?

They could pull off a big shock.

Another off putting thing is the ludicrous 26bn extra cost of drugs claim after banging away for 3 years about the leave EU promises  about 350m to the NHS undermining the result. Someone needs a claim about something that is greater than a cost or benefit of 500m a week.

Did you know that Nigel Farage’s Leave. EU formally signed up to a detailed exit plan, which would take two decades, involve single market membership and a confirmatory referendum on the deal?
