Three hail Mary's, four head dunks in the baptist font and holy communion
to be taken along side each diner at night with only one glass of holy red wine
to be consumed there-in each time.

Note: Please return all empties as the nuns can get a half Euro back on
each bottle when returned to the monastery's wine shop.

Heads must roll

Have to laugh at the "submarine" chancellor though.....

"as the Chancellor faced questions after incorrectly naming HSBC as one of the banks being investigated as part of the ongoing Libor probe".

Dear Sir,

With reference to the job of Senior Political Correspondent,
I am quite interested in applying but could you first tell
me what the remuneration package will be.

I am currently working as a part Correspondent at the Morning Star
so feel ably qualified in all areas as mentioned in your required
areas of achievement.

Yours faithfully

Bob Crow.
RMT
p.s. No longer a member of Jim Henson's fan club as I got
thrown out after attempting to get the Muppets to come out
on strike.

Thank you for confirming that the rebuke was well deserved. I'm really surprised that with your posting style that you have not had the thread locked.

1: Should you have visited your "other" thread, you will find that I felt sorry for Chloe Smith who I have met in Watton & even though she is only a junior minister, she is genuinely sincere.

2: Again, thank you for confirming that you do not care what others think as long as your opinion is the only one that counts.

3: So you want to continue associating with those that defraud the taxpayer & anyone who disagrees should go live in a banana republic...how very English of you!

4: Jim Henson gave us plenty to laugh at to escape the rigours of a hard weeks work - something which your favourite government has failed to do.

All replies please to: -

Dear Mr Crow,

We confirm the receipt of your application for the post of Senior Political Correspondent with the Daily Muppet PLC.

However, we regretfully have to inform you, that upon perusing your CV, it showed that your current part-time position with the Morning Star is not radical enough for our proposed publication.

Yours Sincerely,

R. Soles
Assistant Personnel Manager.

Dear Mr R. Soles,

I consider the reason for rejection of my job application
amounts to a slur on my character. It fails to take into
consideration my totally irrational approach to my radical actions
when being radically opposed to all politicians being that there all
bent and a total bunch of homosexuals. Plus all with their hands in
the EU till getting hush money because all of Brussels is full of
homo's too. As the EU being past it's sell by date, it has gone further
than that! half of that lot are dead in their seats yet no one has noticed.
As regards my past membership of the Jim Henson fan club, I like it
to be known that I won their magazine competition yesterday and the
prize is one years free membership. I won by correctly identifying
Jim Henson's latest Muppet creation. The correct answer was Van Rompuy
President of the ECM.

Please will you re-consider my application.

Yours faithfully,

Bob Crow.
p.s. I promise not to call the Muppets out on strike
ever again.

Dear Mr Crow,

First, my apologies for the erroneous letter sent by the, now ex-assisant personnel manager. That correspondence was forwarded without my knowledge.

After viewing your C.V, I find that you have excellent abilities & therefore offer you the position.

I look forward to hearing from you.

yours sincerely

Ah,

So this is how a civil conversation goes when there's no right-wingers involved.


:-)

It must be nice to have intelligent conversation about issues when everyone sees clearly, exactly what the problems are.

Even us lot need a break and a bit of light relief at times. We don't take it TOO seriously, otherwise we would see too many hidden posts. :-))

It's the other way around, Ex'; this is what you get when right-wingers get
bored and start to bounce off one another.

What? Light relief? Are you serious? Sirius is always serious!

We could do with a few more MP's like this guy...

"Since becoming chairman, Tyrie has cemented the reputation of the Treasury Select Committee as one of the most feared by its witnesses and most combative on behalf of the public. His scrutiny of the Libor scandal is bound to be forensic".

Full interview...Outrage over rates fixing scandal

Well, Sirius; this issue cannot be swept under the carpet for the whole of
the UK's world standing in banking is at stake here. Find the culprits, who
ever they are, even if there Jesus and feed them to the lions, or else the
UK will repent for ever. As for the chiefs of those banks involved they are
guilty of at least the minimal charge of "Joint gross neglect of duty and
of responsibility"

Barclay's Chairman resigns

However Bob Diamond still refuses to go...probably waiting to be forced out so he can pick up a "Golden Handshake"!

Well, I think Diamond should also go, but they've had the sacrificial lamb in the form of the Chairman, Chairman. I'm in two minds whether he should go now or be made to clean up the mess, then go. They need someone senior enough to drive through the changes required.
