Caption Competition: Iain Meets the Chipmunk


Just got back from interviewing the lovely Hazel Blears for an hour for the next issue of Total Politics. She really is a complete sweetie [battens down the hatch]. It was a cracking interview in which she reveals ... er ... guess that had better wait for the magazine, I suppose.

Complete sweetie - do me a favour...

Endlessly parrots Nulabour 'achievements' in the hope that this will bring her (even more) preferment and (excuse me while I fall about laughing) the top job.

Took over from where Thugger Reid left off.

Is Gordon this much of a Dick head !

He: "Do you expect me to talk?"

She: "No Mr Dale, I expect you to die."

Iain asks the interview's light-hearted final question, "Which finger would you like to pull, the left one or the right one?"

Darryl Beckford said...

Now it's not usually my style, but for you I'll make an exception. Can I have a look under there?

OK, that last one was naff and I write from the Labour side but the thing about Hazel is that her enthusiasm is infectious.

Come on you know what the caption is.

"The government is more popular than it was under Blair. The economy is in fine shape. The Tories are wetting themselves with fear. We will win the next election with a 200+ seat majority"

Different Duncan said...

Chip(monk) 'n' Dale ???

Sorry.

I now get Hazel Blears's appeal, after watching her the last time she was on Question Time. The way she expresses herself is just like my female friends from Manchester, and I can understand how she would resonate with voters there.

Iain

Far be it from a humble plebeian like myself to ask you to blog on a particular subject, but I'd be interested in reading your noble opinion on the Trump development in Scotland, the reaction of the environmentalists to it and the DANGERS of the Green Party and the threat they pose to investment in our economy!

Yours in nobility

I thought Les Dawson was dead but he seems to still be doing the impression of the Northern woman looking at the picture of your interview!

She might be a socialist...or something like that...but she rings my bells!!

Shouldn't she have been sitting on your lap in a 'ventriloquist' style?

Her Total Politics interview was tres amusing..

Arkangel said...

"Oh Iain, is that all there is? You poor, poor man".

Anna said...

oh for goodness' sake. Yes, Hazel Blears is a very appealing media personality, promulgating Labour lies with complete aplomb.

But please do engage brain. Look back on previous pronouncements indicating classic old-hat Labour class warfare.

I know I am wasting my breath. One cannot separate a man from his chipmunk!

Ann said...

Iain 'what shall I do with this bogey'.

Sweetie. 'eat it luv'.

Tom Paine said...

It really is quite worrying how you react so positively to this very archetype of the enemies of freedom. Can you offer any psychological excuses?

Jonny Mac said...

Blears: "Oh my God, you've got a strange pink thing coming out of your bottom!"

Dale (blustering): " Er, no I haven't, oh look over there, quick, it's John Prescott's trousers!"

Wrinkled Weasel said...

What is it with Chipmunk mania? Is it enough to turn Dale? I am going to put myself up for a thrashing here: Hazel has that "Thatcher" thing. No matter how annoying she is politically, really, underneath it all, every male, including dear Iain, wants to hold her tight and squeeze her till she squeaks.



I'll get me coat.

"Iain, delighted that you have seen sense at last. Surprisingly we do have a vacancy for a constituency secretary in Tunbridge Wells.."

Anonymous said...

Did you know that according to Jane Griffith-former Reading East MPand close colleague-that a very interesting Malcolm Powers is thinking of putting in for a seat in Reading.Yes no joke!

strapworld said...

I am sorry Iain, she is just a complete motor mouth to me.

But it was quite interesting to read that she was involved (from stage left) in the 'plot' against Brown just prior to the labour conference.

The next leader of the Labour Party? Might be worth a flutter.

word verification!!! gasms(What Iain had with his Chipmunk!!)

I think Hazel is a good politician. She is growing on me.

Two media personalities prepare to leave an obscene message on an elderly national politician's answerphone?

Complete sweetie, my hairy bottom!

She is a New Labour apparatchik and hence a treat to civilisation!

Tell Gordon if you stick one of these up each nostril, you can have a double helping of bogey!

***********************

'Infectious'??? Yeah, like Ebola Fever, maybe. For what, might one ask, does she display enthusiasm? For an illegal war and the man who took us there? For the disastrous social, educational and economic policies of the last eight years? For ID cards? For an NHS database? For the ruination of what used to be a decent country? For her own survival despite any mitigating qualities?

Bah, humbug.

WW is right. At the very least she is the Comical Ali of Westminster; if you are non-anglophone or simply turn the sound down she is the hottest thing since Anita Ekberg.

Wrinkled Weasel said...

Yes, Kevin G, but do you mean Anita Ekberg as in

Being wet with The Chipmunk in the Trevi Fountain appeals, but do we have to get there on the Ducati? I am more of an Alfa man myself.
