The Tory and the sheep
Friday, January 12, 2007
I was supposed to be doing something else this evening. But this, from Glyn Davies AM, has to be the best thing a politician has ever written on my blog, and it deserves a post all of its own:
"The reason that I was driving without my trousers on, with a load of sheep, was that I refused to give up after an accident on the farm. When I intend to do something, I am not easily put off."
Thanks for clearing that up, Glyn!
He was actually responding to a rather antagonistic post from another commenter and re-asserting the Tories' tactic going into the Assembly elections - to challenge the Lib Dems and Plaid to consider coalition or otherwise prop up what will most likely be a weakened Labour administration.
Everyone seems to be getting so tetchy about coalitions at the moment that it does rather beg the question - if they can't get on in opposition, how on earth would they run a country together?

Oh dear! Even I had to laugh at this.

Feeling sheepish, Glyn? It's right up there with Ron's "badger watching" moment for memorable political excuses.
The broader point about people cooperating or not forgets the posturing that's going on at the moment, pre-election. The Lib Dems spurn all advances, when we know they'll be in bed with the first party to offer them a chauffer-driven ride round the Bay. They've done it before and they'll do it again.
The haggling post-May 5 is going to be wonderful. Not.
