She said WHAT?

Picture the scene…

BBC Question Time Headquarters, just one hour until air time.

You’ve rang every politician, pundit and person of note that you can think of but everyone has prior engagements of some form.

Roland the Rat couldn’t make it, Basil Brush has a speaking engagement at a Conservative party dinner, what the hell are you going to do?

In a last, desperate search of Google, you stumble across this:

The name sounds vaguely familiar, so you take a look.


It’s that woman that was on that Lord Sugar program that time.

You can’t remember her, you don’t know if she’s so much as half a brain in her head but by Floaty Beard, surely she’s available? SHE IS!

Having filled the fourth slot, you sit back to watch the evening unfold.

An hour later, you’re already packing up your stuff before the p45 has been printed…

Katie Hopkins, ladies and gentlemen, who actually said:

“Women don’t want equality, they want special treatment”

This from an alleged woman? Disgraceful…

In hope of finding some redeeming quality in this woman, I decided to read her blog.

The first article I hit upon was:

“10 Things To Love About Lady Thatcher”

I’m not going to attack the woman for loving Thatcher, i’m going to allow her an opinion.

A privilege i’m tempted to revoke having seen her reasons, especially Number 5, “The Handbag”

“We knew Thatcher was real because she carried things about. In a handbag. We like that. And she looked like she might wield it in anger if required. And we liked that even more.”

I’ve seen Paris Hilton carrying a handbag Katie, but i’m damn sure I don’t want her running the country.

I’m not getting involved.

With everything which has gone on in the news of late, I decided that I would take a step back.

There are other, better political bloggers out there to cover the news for you and Floaty Beard knows, they have enough material.

Take Nadine Dorries for example, the Conservative MP for Mid-Bedfordshire.

Now, i’m not going into it but I will ask if you saw her tweetings from earlier in the week?:

There’s this one

And this one

which she followed up with:

This one

Right, i’m just wondering, what difference does that make?
Quote or no, I can only assume you believe that pile of drivel to have posted it on Twitter?
I mean, I had an e-mail today which assured me that Cialimegapenilift was THE erectile dysfunction pill but, doubting the efficacy of their product, I DIDN’T BLOODY TWEET ABOUT IT!

But as I said, i’m not getting drawn into the political machinations of the country just now.

Mind you, what about the NHS reforms?

David Cameron and his pencil topper, Nick Clegg are slowly but surely taking this country to the cleaners.

Next step in their “Screw You Britain” plan of attack? So-called reforms of the NHS.

Don’t get me wrong, the NHS could use a little re-thinking, what major organisation couldn’t?

I’m just not so sure they are going about it the right way.

Perhaps i’ve got the wrong end of the stick but plans would seem to include pushing management tasks onto GP’s to cut down on admin staff?

Hmm…I can’t get an appointment for love nor money, which leads me to assume that my GP is either fighting crime and has no time for such paltry pursuits as the health of his patients, or is pretty busy with all the sick people.

Call me nuts, as many have before, but looking at one of the surgeries local to me, there are six doctors and, unless I am mistaken, one hundred and eighty four receptionists.
I may have fudged the figures just a little, but my first thought is not “Fire every last receptionist and let the doctors pick up the slack!” so much as “We could do with less receptionists, certainly…”

I digress, politics is not really my area, so on to the main reason for this blog which, I admit, is semi-political.

Did anyone catch Alastair Campbell on Question Time this week?

I’m not entirely sure why but, at one point, he felt the need to put on a Scottish Accent when quoting/mocking George Galloway.

I don’t mind a bit of Galloway mocking, I have, sadly, seen that cat video, but the accent Alastair?

I hear he’s joining Jon Culshaw for the new series of Impressions, you’ll forgive me if I don’t Sky+ this one…
