Our Eurovision hope
..is due to be eight months preggers when she waddles on to the stage in Kiev on 21st May – [ the day before my birthday - NB: Amazon wishlist to follow soon ]. Jordan is the perfect Eurovision contestant. The fact that she may drop a sprog on stage in front of 80 billion viewers can only add to the drama and anticipation of the night. Better order in an industrial defibrilator for Terry Wogan Aunty Beeb.
In the week when it looks like the curse of A’ Levels will persist ever longer it was gratifying to learn that the up and coming generation are adopting interweb technology to fail their exams. This site documents one young man’s quest to plumb political depths in pursuit of academic procrastination. It makes for a very entetaining read – especially the letters written by politicians desperate to appear ‘with it’. ‘It’ being a genetic trait absent from the bodies of all politicians. The photograph of Denis Healey on a death slide is particularly entertaining. You can’t imagine Gordon goofing off like that can you?
Interestingly, if you type www.labour.org.uk/gordonbrown into your browser you get a blank page headed ‘news’ and a button with a grinning TB reading, “ask the Prime Minister”. Curious that.
