I have no useful opinions on any of the current hot talking points.
- Ariel Sharon’s illness
- Charles Kennedy / Liberal Democrats
- George Galloway on Celebrity Big Brother
- The death of Rachel Squire MP
…so here are some completely useless opinions instead.
Ariel Sharon’s illness — Nothing interesting to say, apart from the fact that I once again found BBC News 24’s headline a bit weird. They often seem to have trouble describing a story in just two or three words. “SHARON VERY ILL”. It sounds more like a headline on Newsround. It was later changed to “SHARON GRAVELY ILL”, and then “SHARON STROKE”.
Charles Kennedy / Liberal Democrats — I read that every leadership contender needs to get seven signatures before they can be nominated. So if all of the other contenders wuss out of playing Heseltine, and Charles Kennedy is unable to get seven signatures, we presumably have the possibility of there being a leadership contest with no nominees.
George Galloway on Celebrity Big Brother — Nothing apart from the obvious: “WTF — what an ego-man”. But it could be risky for him. If he puts his foot in it in the BB house, that’s it.
Rachel Squire / Dunfermline and West Fife
By-election — Monkeys with red rosettes in the Dunfermline area are polishing up their CVs.
