The face of the Nanny State
I'm sorry. I really am. But seeing this picture of Catherine Ashton this morning the phrase 'face like a bag of spanners' just leapt into my mind and cannot be dislodged. This is not a portrait of the UK's new Trade Commissioner, it is a picture of the Nanny State itself; Ashton spent much of her career promoting bastardy, and the rest of it helping teenage girls give birth. But if ever there was one image guaranteed to de-tumesce a hormonal teenager it is this one; giant posters featuring it should immediately erected throughout the nation, and subliminal stills should be inserted in every rap video. The truth is, she's wasted on Brussels; we need her here.
