 A world ruled by Posh

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:
Feb 20, 2002

The UK obsession with dullard celebrities seems to overshadow any interest in what their elected monkeys are up to. I think it's really just a personality thing, I mean Tony Blair only points his enormous ears at the international community while Posh Spice lip syncs absolutely amazing pop music. It's become pretty obvious that to make social change, you have to invest in what the people really want. As an American, I think I would cry if I had to rely on Tony Blair's bend over and take it attitude for the well being of my country.

To solve the problems of national depression and disinterest, I'm wondering if perhaps, Steven Byers was replaced with David Beckham as the Transport guy then maybe people would really get invested in the UK's infrastructure? Similarly, if the NHS was run by former members of Steps, then people would definitely be voting for back-up singers (in the form of nurses)....

Viva la revolution!

I personally would like to see dear old Johnny Rotten (nae Lydon) take up a seat round the cabinet...I'd vote for him!
The lovely boys & girls from Steps could maybe overhaul the railways, gawd knows it needs it! If they can't make the railways work, then let the Germans run it.
Sounds ridiculous? I understand that the delightful Gareth Gates, runner-up in ITV's Pop Idol show, is to be sent as a British envoy to Zimbabwae, where his charming speach impediment is sure to Charm the testy Mr. Mugabe.

overhaul the railways,

That's overhaul as in cover with tarmac and paint a white line down the middle ?

If you can't get where you're going without a white line to keep other cars out of your way, then your problem is that your SUV is too small. Number one, they should fear you enough to stay away, line or no line. Number two, if they are just too stupid to keep back, let them hit you. If you're driving a real vehicle, the impact won't even slow you down.

And number three, by the way, who needs this "tarmac" anyway? Are you all fags or something?

Just kidding. Real men don't need cars, or roads. A bike is enough. Anyone who can't face urban traffic without 6,000 pounds of glass and steel to protect them is a loser. A man like that standing next to a real man with nothing but his bike and his balls to protect him looks like a girl by comparison. A scared, weak, sniveling little girl who cries for her daddy every time I sneer at "him" from my bicycle.

Girly man in your big jeep, call for help on your cell phone! Call your lawyer. Call your police, so they will stop me from spitting on your chrome and your tinted windows.

Dial fast, girly man, for I am about to pleasure myself upon you, you frail little thing. HA!

I do, I do, I do

1990 4Runner, 168,000 miles, bent rod. In the shop getting a rebuilt engine and new clutch. 4 grand easy.

1997 Outback, wife barely grazed a utility pole while backing out of a tight parking spot. Ripped the entire goddamned bumper off. In the shop, getting fixed, $2300.

Oh yes, I just fucking love cars. Thank God for my bicycles. At least I can still get to work.

Perhaps we should take a leaf out of the US's book, however they seem to be going the other way having recently replaced their celebrity President with the more classic "mad" President variety.

I thought the Italians had already tried taking this to its 'obvious'(?) conclusion by electing to parliament someone involved in the pornography industry, to wit, one Ciccolina. I don't know to what extent Italy moved up in the "World's most successful policital systems" list as a result of this, but I suspect it was not by much.

Of course, given the reputation Italians have for organisation generally (with the exception of crime, where they did hold World's Best Practice status for a while), it's possible that those in the United Kingdom may be more successful at "spicing up" their politics.
