"Suppose you are also in favour of a return to making them clean chimneys!!!" It's good exercise. Posted by: RichardJ | March 10, 2009 at 10:32 How funny!

And regarding the cartoon, the "Get Stabbed" slogan is not too far from the truth. It is time people woke up and realised that knife crime at current levels is something that has only been allowed to spread under a Labour government, where police are predominantly desk based and operate on a responsive basis, rather than on a preventative basis. Vote Labour and, yes, you might just get stabbed. Who by? Who knows? Can the Conservatives turn that damage around overnight? I doubt it but the first step will be getting police back on the street and letting these misguided youths know that the fun time is over.

"Anyway, Cameron has been detatched from society by his upbringing and education. He's not exceptionally intelligent (unlike Brown...) and doesn't understand what it's like to be poor." Posted by: af | April 07, 2009 at 01:03 Af, you don't need to be exceptionally intelligent to be PM, nor to do most jobs actually (outside of employment based on extensive studying ie. doctors, lawyers etc.) The role of PM is one of proper delegation and people management, whilst retaining the executive decision making responsibility. Therefore it is a job best done by a person with a feel for who is the best person to fulfil their respective roles within the cabinet, coupled with an abundance of common sense and vision of what we used to call GREAT Britain. So pop back to Whitehall and see if the "ever-intelligent" Brown can get his head around that far, so very, very misunderstood of the job in hand. And you really should refrain from such stereotyping. It is so 1970s.
