Do you have all these bookmarked or something?


No. If I write something I feel I might want to recall, I'll use a word I don't commonly use, or I'll use a person's name.

And do you do all this from within the halls of your mind palace?

Sky sources saying DUP are saying no deal has been done and discussions are ongoing. Has May jumped the gun here? It's obviously looking like a minority govt with C&S from DUP. They'll ask for loads more money for NI of course too.

Very shaky if so. I bet it won't last six months.


I don't think she's going to be able to shake off this self-inflicted disaster. Her calling it for stability etc is going to be as remembered as Ted Heath's February 1974 election of 'who runs Britain?'

Yeah she's got absolutely no fucking chance. Whilst people like Boris will happily put the interests of the party above those of the country there's no way they'll put the party ahead of their own ambitions. You can almost hear the knives being sharpened.

What are the odds DUP ask for one of theirs to be made Northern Ireland Minister?

Only if it's a full blown coalition which seems unlikely at this moment in time.

What's the chance that DUP officially in government might cause some unpleasantness in Northern Ireland, especially if they end up with the Northern Ireland ministry?

The DUP already cause plenty of unpleasantness in Northern Ireland. It's just we haven't paid attention up until now (me included).

May warned us all about a week leader propped up by extremists and terrorists. We just didn't realise that she was referring to herself.

Maybe I should have said "far more, and much more unpleasant unpleasantness" :)

Has the Kensington result been called yet? I can't find it anywhere. I think it went for a re-count. My uncle lives there, and he's a complete butt-sponge, and I very much suspect he's a conservative voter and would laugh to see Labour take it.

Well let's be honest, the guy's an expert on that score!

No, the recount has been postponed until later today as the counters were becoming 'visibly tired'.

It looks like we'll be sending the Conservative and Unionist Negotiating Team to Brussels. I hope they can come up with a handy acronym for us all to remember.

Nice article on Canterbury. I am proud (not through my own involvement, mind) of the (unproven):

I lost my seat as a civil servant after 38 years, thanks to Eric Pickles. Not that stood against him in an election. :D
