even you know that when he handles himself like this, or like the citizens UK speech we're seeing a man who could've been a great politician. His time just came a few decades too late.
the financial prudence of a drunk in a casino.
i think now the pressure is off we'll see a new man
Balls? Nah, tied too closely to Brown.
Harman? Too divisive?
Milliband E? I can't see it.
Milliband D? Got to be the favourite.
Johnson? I like the guy, but is he slick enough for this new media age?
Alternatively, could he be the antidote to Cameron/Clegg?
Balls - Labour's Michael Howard, might appeal to some in the base but election kryptonite
Harman - got her deputy job on second preference votes, not got the weight to carry it
Mili E - too low profile
Mili D - best bet but is he just Blair mkIV (cameron and clegg being II and III)
Johnson - a good holding guy while they sort themselves out but not a viable PM candidate for me
stands these days.
Dorset Libs aren't exactly hippies and would vote Tory over Labour any day of the week.
the lib dems could be dust with students and lefties deserting them.
red ones go full red (if labour pick the right man/woman)
That said, power is seductive. They might find they like it.
I cry at the drop of a hat though so just put my name down anyway
he listens to Jawbreaker and everything. Man got soul.
I was too busy listening to Screeching Weasel. But I watched it! Just didn't hear it...)
I didn't even see it all. Poor Gordon.
I'll never cry for Cameron, the idiothole.
hate him so much.
they were talking about him when he was just taking over
memories . . .
also helps that im in a different country
he put the kids in the car, drove to Buckingham Palace and what ...?
"Wait in the car kids"
"But we want to see the Queen"
"I SAID WAIT IN THE BLOODY CAR"
"Listen, Rod, Todd ... daddy's not having the best of days. Better do as he says"
I hope the police fucking well pulled then over.
Eugh, Cameron's due on in 15 minutes.
when Cameron appears?
he'll go for the ground glass in his cabinet luncheons
slowly bleeding him to death
not just because i'm a typical liberal lefty post-graduate social science student but because they didn't win win and partly because it'd be thoroughly undignified.
it'll be all 'Gosh, this is a bit of a jape, isn't it?', then everyone inside for designer cupcakes and lapsang souchong served in Cath Kidston mugs.
you sure know how to reference a helluva lot of it...
I love cupcakes.
1) is Call Me Dave cycling to Buckingham palace?
2) Land Is Power for the Kirkcaldy seat O/
because something like that could fuck a ConDem coalition
GET OUT THE CAR AR TRAFFIC LIGHTS?
Everything will go like when Skynet gets switched on in Terminator 3. DOOOOMED.
this getting stuck in traffic stuff is so undignified.
glad he turned off
Did he wink when he said about his wife "I thank her for... her own service to her country"? Dirty devil!
so much awkward smiling :')
Imma let you finish but Maggie had one of the best resignations of ALL TIME
being funny and gracious and reminding us all how he stole our hearts tens years previous
He actually looks human
But not because I'm a babyeating torygirl- rather, I was in the air when it aired. I know I'll sob indulgently when I see it when I get home. I'll recover quickly however in time for my massive bingewank over davensam getting the keys to the door.
Lazy buggers got someone to open the door for them
I found some of it quite choking though. See, I have a pulse :D
It's going to be like when Sideshow Bob became Mayor of Springfield and he laughs, and laughs, and laughs... isn't it?
and thunder and lightning
sustainable, Conservatism with a drizzling of carbon neutrality.
Ample evidence that this Tory-Lib coalition mmmmight just work!
the student socialists are all fucking loving this, because for months now it's been status updates about how shite the lib dems are and how voting for socialism is "THE ONLY REAL ALTERNATIVE" and now they get to be all "lol told you so! nick clegg is a massive tory bastard!"
"Oh hey all you students out there.. all the ones that voted Lib Dem yeah.. cause they were like, an alternative to Labour and the Tories being so right wing yeah? Enjoy all that free education you won't be having."
"Gordon Brown "wishes his successor well". What kind of shitey attitude is that to the tories from a scot?"
- well he kind of has to say that doesn't he, i don't imagine it was ENTIRELY SINCERE
it's a shame, i'm sympathetic towards socialism really, but their self-important smugness is starting to outweigh cameron and clegg's put together
I tend to like our PM's a lot more than their parties.
COULD IT BE ALL OVER BEFORE IT BEGINS (no)
or was there a "We interrupt this programme..." style message?
and Eastenders will follow this programme they says
Stop caring about Eastenders
I just don't think I've ever seen a "We interrupt this programme style message"
Would be kinda cool, no? Definitely more exciting than the prospect of four years of a Tory government.
or just continued on from the News idk i was watching Hollyoaks and Emmerdale
eastenders was well grim during the thatcher era
living that it is now?
it's not the fucking West Wing like
but is it just me or did Cameron seem completely out-of-place - man has about as much gravitas as a mini-babybel.
Face all lumpy.
in an unfashionable postcode.
It's like on Wife Swap USA when the trophy wife first walks into the West Virginia trailer park.
Anyway.... I suspect they'll not *properly* move in. Give it to Clegg!
has to have standards!
I'd probably have been aware of more of my generation's big events as they were happening. Oh well.
GBs speech was excellent. I feel sorry for him, and although he is far from perfect, I feel like he was maligned too much for his lack of public speaking savvy.
