Right. In favour of the Euro? Prat. Rebels against Tory whips? Excellent. Cigar smoking board member of BAT? Brill. Is an experienced minister? Superb. Will be 70 this year? Why not? Isn't 70 the new 50?
Ken’s opponents point out that he is in favour of the Euro, rebelled against Tory whips to support the Lisbon Treaty, is a cigar-smoking deputy chairman of British American Tobacco, was a junior member of Ted Heath’s government, and will be 70 in July next year."Any of these things should disqualify him from the front bench," says a Tory MP
Four out of five ain't bad, as they say.
And to that tight-arsed prissy little dung-eater of an unnamed 'Tory MP' - grow up, you repulsive little toad.
I for one would be more than happy for Ken to join the front bench. But I'd also offer to take him to a discreet 'shabeen' jazz venue I know where the sounds are sweet and low and the audience smokes its head off. To talk some sense into him about the Euro thing, you understand.
