Worth a read, maybe a smile?

It made me laugh anyway MB.

Methinks there will be great murmurings of the Elders against the High Priestess hehind closed doors and May will be gone before the Ides of next March.

I bet there's nothing more she'd like to do than go and hide somewhere. Poor woman. What a mess.

So funny, thank you MawBroon.

Corbyn - a young hart skipping grin

POOR WOMAN Hell mend her,she's incompetent ,not up to the job...she's messed up peoples lives and left people without hope .Karma would be good where she's concerned, only SHE can walk away with her dodgy uber wealthy husband and not look back.Then she'll boast about reaching the highest office in the land.These people make me sick .She has no common sense either or she would have stopped short at bring DUP onboard.Just what this country needs...more bigots to fuel the fire !!

I guess you didn't find it funny then, paddyann grin

Greyduster Sat 10-Jun-17 12:04:15

There's always one hmm. I thought it was brilliant. Sent the link to DS.

Anniebach Sat 10-Jun-17 12:19:33

Are we are allowed to send links on please? Hope so😀

Anniebach Sat 10-Jun-17 12:21:39

Some do have a problem with the wealth of others, as long as they pay their tax I couldn't care less

TerriBull Sat 10-Jun-17 12:26:27

Very good and resonates with those of us who remember the 1970s hmm.

Anniebach Sat 10-Jun-17 12:31:41

It was a grim time Terri, rubbish piled on pavements , transport strikes, postal strikes, power cuts, but the most cruel was the dead couldn't be buried in some parts of the country

Why has this been put on in two places? Many have already said how funny it is. I have posted it on my FB page but I am not sure why I have to comment twice on it.

MawBroon Sat 10-Jun-17 12:39:09

Is it somewhere else too??

MawBroon Sat 10-Jun-17 12:39:54

PS gracesgranmk2 commenting is NOT compulsory! grin

Baggs Sat 10-Jun-17 12:44:18

Very funny! grin

Elegran Sat 10-Jun-17 13:18:43

Very good. I like the sentence, "For surely it is written that ruling and campaigning are as oil and water, and there shall be no concord betwixt them."

GracesGranMK2 Sat 10-Jun-17 13:20:59

It's not a problem Maw - just the comments in some of the post above are a little annoying when it is also else where. 'Flaming' is not allowed on many sites but we do seem to get it on here.

MawBroon Sat 10-Jun-17 13:22:17

Can you point me towards it please GGMk2
I did try the GN search engine but was unable to find it.

GracesGranMK2 Sat 10-Jun-17 13:26:33

I can't remember Maw, I'm afraid. If I come across it I will let you know.

MawBroon Sat 10-Jun-17 13:29:42

Well at the risk of sounding intemperate, it doesn't sound as if I have started a duplicate thread does it? So your comment "Why has this been put on in two places?" etc etc seems an unnecessary put down.

GracesGranMK2 Sat 10-Jun-17 13:31:04

Found it quicker than I expected. It's on Democracy hahahaha.

GracesGranMK2 Sat 10-Jun-17 13:33:01

I wasn't even suggesting you had Maw and was very careful to say it was not a problem. It was not the double posting; it was the 'flaming' comments I was objecting to.

I really cannot stop you taking offence if you choose to but none was intended.
