What do you expect him to do?  Break out into a chorus of "Ding dong! The witch is dead"? 

Maybe he’s saving that one for Henrietta.

Sending love Doc. To you and Mrs Doc. 

Thanks Rox. My sadness pales into insignificance compared to recent world events and of course closer to home with poor Lilly. It's still sad of course but my thoughts go out to others too.

This young David fella used to work in the Outback.

He now has an MBE and by the end of his current term will have taken in over half a million from tax payers in pay since he got into politics.

Props, he's played you all.

Your feeling of sadness are as valid as those of anyone else no matter what they are going through.

Grief is the price we pay for love, but knowing that doesn’t make it any easier. ❤️

Most of those who have left were featured in a negative light in the Ranson tribunal. With the exception of the DFE chap.

The DFE chap’s leaving had been planned for several weeks and he had handed in his notice a while back, before the tribunal results. It was not connected with the Ranson tribunal results and I think it’s unfortunate that the news came out on the day it did, as he has been undeservedly tarred with the same brush as Malone, Ashford et al.

(Although I believe the DFE chap outed himself as leaving via Twitter. I don’t know if this is how the media got hold of it or if the news went through official channels).

Are they not a bit like the Ten Commandments though? Few would be able to quote them word for word but everybody knows you shouldn’t kill etc.

Something about not bearing false witness if you can implausibly claim to not have  realised you were at a party or have shredded the letter because  of GDPR.

And he still has his part time job at the Outback!

Which makes this clip from Lawrie even more baffling as he chaired the secret Ranson PAC evidence session:

Is he Naïve? Or dishonest? He doesn't come across as stupid.

Dishonestly saving his job.

I wouldn't trust a drink poured by him. 

But he will have watched Tom Cruise in Cocktail over 200 times and it will be the best drink ever served to anyone based on hours and hours of research conducted by Ashie. Besides he still does their bookkeeping part time.

Well paid monkeys.........

 

Being an MHK is hardly a status job or a well respected position. 

You become a MP and you have a bit of Gravitas, you don't get that here.
