Continuing my occasional series on Dickheads.......
Someone asked me yesterday (I think it was Daryl), if Labour in the UK could lose the General Election.
This conjured up an image of one of my top Dickheads.
Enter stage right, Michael Howard, the leader of The Opposition.
Well firstly, having just listened to Malcolm Gladwell do another talk on his book Blink, first impressions are very important and usually right. The term "Slimy" comes to mind when you lay eyes upon Michael Howard and that smile. The second word that comes to mind is Toad.
Secondly, if a fellow colleague who worked with him, and I wouldn't say Anne Widdecombe was exactly "normal", described Michael Howard as "there is something of the night about him" you know that something is wrong.
Of course there's the infamous interview with Jeremy Paxman, where Howard refused to give a yes or no answer which was asked 12 times. You have to see it to believe it.
But what gets me most about this Slimy Toad, is that he would do
anything for power by using political expediency. Shame on you
Michael Howard, the son of a Jewish father escaping Nazi persecution,
for picking on those less fortunate than you, believing this will win
you votes, because it's politically acceptable to pick on gypsies and travellers, asylum seekers, and immigrants.
Fortunately, it looks like your grab for power is failing. Immigration strategy backfiring on Tories.
How stupid would the British public be to vote for someone worse than Blair?
