‘..someone in the Alliance was counting up on their fingers…’ – one of the more intellectual ones, Tim?

  • Ife – you remind me of that old analogy, from a previous age, of the needle on a gramophone getting stuck in the groove of the record and repeating the same bit over and over again ad infinitum….
  • There’s really no alternative to pulling his arms & legs off – slowly – or burning him in oil, is there, Ife?
  • I was thinking of at least two councillors who are very familiar figures in their community, great hand-shakers, have the apparent earnestness of Jack Straw, and have probably concluded that their repeat re-election in the face of serial and blatant infidelity to that community means that their electorate are a bunch of blindly loyal numbskulls.
  • ‘discipline based on the manifesto of the local party’ – and what if there’s direct conflict between this manifesto and what’s clearly in the best interests of your local constituency – you tell them that’s their problem, they voted for a political party first and foremost?
  • Ife – do you really vote just for a party? if so, I know a parrot that could probably be persuaded to say the right thing next time around. Not a human one, mind.
