Political Jargon Bingo

Now Playing: freeview channel 45

I sublimate my desires by watching the Labour Party Conference (freeview channel 45! wa-heyyyy), and playing political jargon bingo. I couldn't in all honesty recommend it, but the nightmares that follow are exciting.

Card 1:
basic legal right
democratic society
justice in an unjust world
the 21st century
shoulder to shoulder

Card 2:
full defence counsel
settle for nothing less
innocent people
as it is, not as it was seen

Card 3:
freedom of choice
18 years of Tory rule
succeeded for years
sexing up

Card 4:
the Euro does not need sexing up for me
no matter what you think of Margaret Thatcher
aims of equality and opportunity
we must be realistic
not just in the UK, not just in Europe

Card 5:
er, er, er
could everyone sit down for the moment
conference I invite you to consider
i fear disastrous consequences for the whole world

Card 6:
lift three hundred million people out of poverty
it was great ....... to hear ....... that
this is crucial
getting ready and getting organised
the US would not concede

Card 7:
outward looking internationalism
UK must bear some of the blame
the courage to choose
reformed more deeply
this is a crunch time

Favourite part so far: The super-swish stylised bigscreen video speech (ie, no big hitters could be bothered to be present in person) to memorialise Michael Foot.
Camera 2 cuts to the ever less than photogenic Foot, and the old duffer isn't watching, he's intently scratching his arse.
That's what I call spin.

I have been indoctrinated into the world of Bingo. Tess took me in Ireland and I'm hooked.
It's one of the few places where you can be accepted as a man in a predominantly female environment. That's clearly an advantage, and the added excitement of actually getting the chance to win something, wahey.

Erm, I hadn't thought of it like that. Having said that, the Belfast meet was 50/50 m/f and I pulled, thankfully not Sid.

You're going to have to work up to those dizzy heights, then. Like my rude pacman? Can you tell how boring flu is, yet? Can you? Can you?

Labour Party conference - full of nodding dog, failed lawyer pork pie hatted politburo bureau tossers. Where presentation is everything, intelligence is a rare commodity indeed and carefully thought out policies have achieved a dodo like status.

The great leader has as many voice and expression changes as Rory Bremner, a man that is promoting Peter Mandelson (declared iq of 155 - but forgets to mention that he borrowed 350 grand on his mortgage application form) into a euro job - having already given amoeba brained Steven Byers a job in charge of work permit applications.

And I'm a life long Labour voter for God's sake!!!!!

He's nowhere near as much a @#%$! as Damien Hirst, though....
