Default We could be a laughing stock one day.......

... if we aren't already.

I can just imagine......... a spokesman at a White House press conference:

"The President would like to congratulate Prime Minister Balls on his election victory. We would like to add that we were all highly impressed with his campaign slogans 'Balls To The People' and 'You Need Balls To Run Britain'."

Bleedin Nora.She should be right on to Kittycat1 then.Or Triumph.
She needs at least three layers of shock absorbers to stop a tremor(and I don't mean in the knees-sorry that's a trembler) if she's going to jog.
Anyway, she's a faghag imho 'allegedly'
(Portillo is a derivative of a word for the gateway to a castle I am told but that could be a smaller portcullis)
Doesn't her son attend a terriwbly expensive private school?
The Milibands have it sewn up nicely. Good tactics,don't you think MM?

Along with the other catchy slogans..."Everyone needs Balls" and "If we are going to succeed, we gotta have Balls".. nice

See that's the danger of this one,could be like the 100-1 National winner.
Dark horse wins the day.Cos the prol aren't really behind any one person.
When it comes down to the final cut though,still think David is the Goliath and Ed will field the stray votes for conversion.

Needs a massive PR lift girl.
Honestly,I think that's a lot to do with the outcome of election,there was absolu no charasmatic personality in the event.
Mandelson could romp home in a leadership race for LP however he didn't shut up and put up too much without being interrogated.He is too damaged now by his own hand.Now we have 'young pretenders' the Press are yet to disect.

Cameron is honourable within his own beliefs but Hague was much more out there! Wrong time wrong place.
He must know he's the 'limping' PM of the 21st C

ETA: AB? He's the Fire Service guy?
