Off to Washington
Just getting on the plane. No comments can be moderated until around 10pm. Have a nice day!
Not leaving your friend Conway in his hour of need are we? Hope you read Fraser Nelson in the Spectator before you left. Anyway, I just hope you reflect on the damage that you have inflected to your credibility whilst you are away.
I hope you have an interesting trip.
Bye Bye, missing u already!
I hope you have a pleasant flight, Ian. Welcome to the United States! As you know, we have some lovely politics going on right now.
You running for office, Iain?
So much for your promise of having yuor new site design online in time for your US trip!
Iain, why not have lunch at the Bombay Club, across Lafayette Square from the White House? It looks good and sounds great.
Have a good time.
poke Shippers in the eye for, and tell him to crack open a bottle of his Zinfandel!
Paul - He has sneaked it online twice at what would have been the wee small hours of the morning in Britain, and I am here to testify that it is simply awful. Very weak, very vapid, very so-so. I mean, pale blue squares? What is that all about?
Could you please explore the possibhility of a Clinton/Obama or Obama/Clinton ticket ? Is it possible...?
Who pays for all your foreign jaunts Iain?
Iain Gordon Brown has just called a snap election it will be held on Monday 4th February where the hell are you!
Fund raising or on a freebie Iain?
"I mean, pale blue squares? What is that all about?"
That's 75% of Dave's front bench, that is...
All my foreign jaunts?!
In the last year I have been to zurich for the weekend, to italy for 5 days and now to washington.
Not that it's anyone's business, but I pay my own way.
While looking something up in the Urban Dictionary, just happened to see:
The inability to become aroused over any of the choices for President put forth by either party during an election year.
"Is anyone appealing to you in this years presidential race?"
"Naa... No one excites me. I think I'm suffering from Electile Dysfunction."
"Clinton/Obama or Obama/Clinton "
The first could be a possibility, tho' I doubt it; the second will never happen, Clinton won't take second place to anyone, it's now or never for her.
Iain! Oh! You didn't go to Rwanda to save the planet and feel the pain?
Here is that dreadful, drab banner again! Between light blue and pale tourquoise. I would say it's like a rogue cat that I have to catch, but cats are elegant.
Why am I the only one who sees this horrible banner? Aren't there any other viewers on the whole of the N American continent?
This is the third time, and it's getting eerie.
Why meeeeeeeee? Can't Iain stop swanking about The Mayflower long enough to explain?
Agree with your views. But US Politics does surprise sometimes - who would have really thought that LBJ would take second place on the JFK ticket - or that JFK would want him! But it won Kennedy the elction, no doubt at all. Where Obama is weak Hillary is strong. Wouldn't the prestige of being the first female Veep, plus West wing office (etc.) perhaps tempt Mrs C? Maybe not!
Watch out Iain! Verity is on a mission. Look out for a short, blue-rinsed, angry looking woman in her 80s smelling of eau de toilette and gin. She has slipped the Feds and been spotted hitching up from Boca to meet you.
No. It's top spot or nothing for Billary. If I were Obama I wouldn't even think about it, it'd be Blair/Brown on steroids !
As regard the JFK/LBJ comparison, LBJ was needed to even have a chance of carrying the south. That election is worth further reading, nowadays few bother to disagree that it was likely stolen by the Democrats in the shape of Daley & his Cook county organisation in Illinois. Nixon, to his credit, refused to contest the result saying that the safety of the US required a smooth transition of power.

You've forgotten Rwanda.
Very true. Which was paid for by 18 Doughty Street.
