IS TYPING IN CAPITALS YOUR WAY OF SAYING YOU WANT US TO WATCH YOUR NEWSPAPER REVIEW, IAIN?!!!!111!!!!

And I'm surprised that video rant didn't end with the words "By the way, I am available for media appearances anywhere for any reason, I'm not fussy." :-p

Daily Referendum said...

Have you been watching the Family Guy cartoon? The main Character (Peter) does a News item called "you know what really grinds my gears?"It's a lot like your Daley Rant.

Iain,

Judging by the title, I thought I was going to disagree with your "Daily Rant" on petitions.... but I totally agree.

Petitions could be a force for good if used wisely.

I still hope the "Gordon Brown should resign" petition does very well, since Gordon Brown sits there with his fingers in his ears doing what the hell he likes, despite evidence he is making stupid mistakes.

I hope the petition gives him a big kick in the goolies.

P.S. You could do Rick Stein voice overs - do you have the same voice coach ;-)

Richard Wilkins said...

Eric Pickles makes me chuckle!

That pun wasn't intended but it's actually quite good lol.

IndependenceHome? Hmm. What would that shining wit Mr Noble think of it?

O/T but I hope you raise with the assorted Libs at Thrope's 80th their disgraceful treatment of him, as recounted in Clark 10-01-1987. Really typical Libs, casting aside anyone who isn't useful.

Iain,

If we're busy, does that mean you won't be doing the Sky News paper review? :-)

David Hughes said...

The pointlessness f the petitions to 10 Downing Street was always obvious - but youcan have a giggle with "Nom de Plumes "
It's the only laugh you'll get out of Brown unless you can do "a Hannan" and fillet him in public so that he daren't throw a wobbler !
(I wonder what notes he was making when Hannan nailed him .... Dear Deidre, I don't have any friends)

Dave Davis is on BBC4 looking good. He's a nice chap with an ace constituency. Have a bud who lives in Beverley and it feels chill.

Dick the Prick said...

He's engaging the crowd and being himself.

ILLIBERAL DEMOCRATS said...

Dick the Prick,

There is a marvellous Pond nead DD seat, indeed it might be in his seat! They have huge Carp in it! All sorts of colours/sizes - Well worth a trip as some of the colours are amazing!

I have enjoyed a few trips feeding them!

ILLIBERAL DEMOCRATS said...

The Pond is in Pocklington!!

Lovely place and a really good memory for me with my folks!

The fish are huge and come to the side to be fed! They are big fish upto 12 - 16 inches in length the last time i enjoyed an afternoon at that place!

We get it. Your name is Dale.

It sounds a bit like Daily.

But please Christ, spare us this
'DALEY' rant nonsense
