    Not to mention that your bloody tabloids foster this "us versus them" type of thinking which is very much one of the reasons for Corbyn. Because any kind of moderate person will be labelled devil incarnate.

    Being a horse's ass is a requirement for becoming PM:

    There's as much chance of JRM becoming PM as there is of me wearing a burqa for the rest of my life.

    The UK has completely lost its way, no good judgement left whatsoever.

    That's a really tough choice. I mean Spready Mercury I would go for any day of the week normally, a nod to an absolute legend and one of the greatest musicians of all time who left too soon.

    But Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti Slip Machinery ... come on that's good. How often do we get a nod to Timmy Mallet, the greatest child's comic when I was growing up?

    I'm torn, I wouldn't know how to vote. Maybe lean towards Gritsy Bitsy.

    At least its not Gritty McGritface. That joke's been done to death.

    God damn it now I have to change my vote to Spready. It's been 50-50 since I first saw the poll at 4000 votes. Looks like it'll be a clear mandate.

    Gritsy Bitsy won, along with David Plowie.

    I'm fond of Gritsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Anti Slip Machinery myself.
    Last night as I lay in bed, looking up at the stars, I thought, “Where the hell is my ceiling?"

    ICJ without a British judge for the first time since 1946. Interesting commentary on what's happening on the UN as well.

    Most likely because Ken Clarke revealed the real reason for the proposal

    In your own graphic the rise in International Development in that year exceeds the fall in FCO spending.
