It'll never catch on

Iain Dale accords Porky Pickles with his "Cabinet Minister of the Week" Award:

* HIPS abolished
* Government Office for London abolished
* Standards Board for England abolished
* Norwich unitary abolished

I have only one thing to add: "Please sir, may we have some more?"

So that's why he got to dress down for cabinet meetings this week!

Shilling for the useless government again, are we Obo?


I expected better of you. Much better.

Which is also what Eric Pickles said when he discovered the Downing Street canteen.

HIPs haven't really been abolished. You still have to have the energy certificate which is the one thing that you always had to pay for. The cost to homeowners will barely be any different.

With you all the way on this one Obo! Hopefully its just the start of dismantling NuLiarBores Socialist Nightmare. I would have emigrated but an too old.

JD I refer you my 08:23 post. However, I like to praise positive actions. It's that balance thing that you claim for yourself so often.

J Demetriou said...

You're so balanced mate, from now on I will refer to you for lessons on balance. Just one look at your political spectrum graph on your weblog front page is all I need for inspiration.

Obnoxio The Clown said...

Once again, you blindly fail to see the point, JD: despite the fact that I am almost diametrically opposed to the LibCon coalition, when they do something I feel is correct, no matter how small, I feel it is my duty to thank them for it. I would have done the same for Labour, but they didn't do anything I agreed with.

The balance comes in the form of dumping on them for things they do wrong and praising them for things they do right.

It has got fuck all to do with where I sit on the political spectrum.
