Every gal and every boy that's born into the world alive, Is either a little Liberal or else a little Conservative (Fa la lah)

[Poll #584258]

Of course, we all know that Boris would really be the best bet. Unfortunately, though, the Conservatives have still not recognised that their chief role in life is to provide light relief to the political process and are running round possessed of the extraordinary notion that they're a serious party which might one day return to government. Tragic, really, when it happens like that...
I'm currently wondering whom I fancy. )

And bats with baby faces in the violet light, Whistled, and beat their wings, And crawled head downward down a blackened wall

On an entirely different note...

I have quite a strong yen to see Hawkwind live again. I don't think I've seen them since 2002, when they supported Motorhead at, oo, Wembley, I think. Notwithstanding the fact that they were absolutely awful on that occasion, I think it might be fun to go again. They're doing their regular Christmas show at the Astoria on 21 Dec, and there'll be dancers and explosions and swirly lights and, well, major hallucinogens and that sort of thing! Fun for all!

I'm in the unfortunate position of knowing that not a single one of you would dream of wanting to accompany me, but I thought I'd mention it nonetheless.

Also, is there truth in these rumours about Neil Innes forming a Bonzo Dog Band line-up for a tour next year? It sounds like an absolutely terrible idea to me, but never mind...

On the Today programme this morning, they mentioned that in Libya mothers scare their children when they've been bad by telling them that Thatcher will get them. I think this is good and right and should be encouraged here too. It also reminded me of quite how dull the Conservatives have got. It used to be so easy to hate the Tories, because they were all such remorselessly repellent characters: Thatcher, Tebbit, Nicholas Ridley; they really could haunt your worst nightmares.

New Tories. New dullness. )

Incidentally, and on an entirely different tack, who's planning on Sliming on Saturday?
[Poll #257881]

Hmm, my card's expired, and I have no idea if I can be bothered to get a new one. Am I really going to go to Slimes sufficient times in the next year to warrant it? I'm not sure.
