Found in all our pigeonholes this morning.

Does anyone remember the eighties? Anyone?

I hope they haven't used comic sans on that flyer....if they have I will burn them all with my firey wrath...sod it, I'll do that anyway
*burns tories.
why is it that conservatives always look like public school boys?

Because they probably were public school boys?

15th Mar 2005, 13:03

Helen says:

Except Major, of course. With his soap box. Pfft.

15th Mar 2005, 13:04

neel says:

I don't think it's comic sans.

I should point out that this in no way reflects my political leanings...

Yeah.

Helen says:

What? Alec can't count on your support?

15th Mar 2005, 15:34

540air says:

Has anyone asked Alec if he knows where "Denby Dale" is? Sounds a bit too rural for a public schoolboy.

(For the record, I've no idea. But then I live in the sarf) ;)

15th Mar 2005, 16:07

Helen says:

"Denby Dale, Thorpe Arch, Leeds"... hmmm something to do with... sofas.

Or maybe Mike's Carpets?

15th Mar 2005, 16:14

Joe says:

hehehehehe...on the malton-pickering road?....sale ends sunday.

15th Mar 2005, 16:15

Helen says:

That's it!

(Hurry! While stocks last.)

It's good to know peole haven't forgotten what arses those Tories are!

neel says:

I haven't. Although my first year at university was the first year of loans instead of grants. And now there's the ludicrously-titled "top-up" fees.

Cheers, Labour!

17th Mar 2005, 13:11

Helen says:

Tuition fees. Pah.

I voted for the evil Mr Clarke (I was a student). I feel deceived and betrayed.

I should have voted for the bus driver, or something, instead.

17th Mar 2005, 13:20

neel says:

I'm so up to my knees in student loans that it's not even worth thinking about. As a friend of mine, currently working toward his Phd and employed as a postgrad, said recently, "the level at which I have to start repaying my loans is three or four times my current salary." Tra la laa.

17th Mar 2005, 13:26

neel says:

Anyone see the budget yesterday? Look at the borrowing on that!

17th Mar 2005, 13:29

Helen says:

Loan? Pay back. Hah. I don't think about it. I am glad they don't send me many letters to remind me about it.

Wine's up by 4p. I was mostly concerned about how that would effect pricing, say on £2.99 bottles. Do they just put it up to £3.05, making it a 6p rise?

17th Mar 2005, 13:36

Joe says:

I voted for me, and I won.
In the Joe's house bi-election that is.

17th Mar 2005, 13:36

Helen says:

I'd vote Joe.

17th Mar 2005, 13:38

Helen says:

Mind you, I might also vote Shoes.

17th Mar 2005, 13:38

neel says:

I'd think that supermarkets would just absorb that into their obscene profit margins, the better to continue duping us foolish consumers that £2.99 is really only two quid and-a-bit.

I'd like to think that I never need to drink three-pound "wine" ever again. You can get some absolute stonkers around the six/seven quid mark.

17th Mar 2005, 13:44

Helen says:

Ah! But in Tesco they often have £7 bottles reduced to about £4 or £5. That's more my sort of thing. Helps decsions.

I was wondering more about how the local shop might deal with pricing.

17th Mar 2005, 13:48

neel says:

They'll probably have to close. And then their children will all be orphaned and the burned-out husk of what used to be a shop will become a haven for drug-addicts and sex workers who'll corrupt your morals and steal your TV.

Vote Conservative and the world will become a shining utopia full of beauty and the eternal joy of peace and harmony!

Joe says:

as long as you're white, with english heritage, earn more than 40k a year, drive a land rover, and shoot pheasants at the weekends.

17th Mar 2005, 13:54

Helen says:

It's ok. Our shop should be safe. All the other little villages' Post Offices have closed, so it has a bigger sphere of influence now. Also it runs a van service -- like Sam on Postman Pat.

Doesn't matter what I vote. This is a Tory safe seat. David Curry's ok though. He likes wine.

17th Mar 2005, 13:57

Helen says:

Or peasants : )

17th Mar 2005, 13:58

neel says:

I prefer the National Trust. I've no idea what our MP choses to dull the pain of being an old-school Labour backbencher with, but it's probably pretty potant.

17th Mar 2005, 14:03

Helen says:

Groan.

I expect he has a weekly delivery from Virgin wines. He's an MP, he can afford it.
