    is it true your going to star as Mr Beans dafter brother in the new Mr Bean movie?

    Have you ever dropped a silent one near a crowded bar and walked away?

    Have you ever worn the missus' knickers to a big debate? You know, just for luck.

    I fully expect the party wonks to cherry-pick easy-answer questions, but when the level of debate starts with such "amusing" questions, said wonks hardly need to exercise themselves in creaming off the nicey-nicey queries.

    Such is the breakdown of political discourse between the proles and the men in charge.

    To be honest...

    ...I like some of what I am hearing about cracking down on short-termism. But then words are cheap and this is the party with some of the most short-term policies going and actively pursues short-term goals.

      They're cracking down on short terrorism? Some sort of new midget threat? I would have thought if they wanted to get back into power they'd avoid mentioning terrorism given the mess they made of it last time.
