Does Hugh Robertson need deer testicles?

You won't know who Hugh Robertson is. None of the staff at the London Olympics did either, which prompted an indignant 'Don't you know who I am?' from Mr Robertson. They shuffled their feet a bit and shook their heads. It had to be explained that Mr Robertson was the Minister for Sports and Tourism; in fact they had to keep pictures of him pinned up to remind them. He's got the sort of immediately forgettable face that bank robbers would long to own. His own children have been known to miss him in a pub car park. When he sits in senior DCMS meetings the chairman always starts with 'Let's just go round the table and introduce ourselves ...'

Anyhow, here's a tip for Mr Robertson from his fellow Tourism Minister for the Spanish Balearics, Carlos Delgado; have yourself pictured with a fresh pair of deer's balls on your head. Then Tweet it. Snr Delgado's domestic profile has risen significantly since (although there's always the risk that he may now be greeted with an 'Oh sorry, I didn't recognise you without your testicles'). Go on, Mr Robertson, what have you got to lose?

Pity his name isn't Jones, had a friend of that name and he and his wife had 3 children so there were 5 Jones. Or cinco Jones.

It looks more like a freshly killed haggis to me, perhaps he is gearing up for Burns Night.

Yeeees. As a profile-raiser it might work I suppose, but not in a good way!
Wait till the RSPCA respond.

You are being flippant Raedwald.

It is a well known fact that no member of the camoron's cabinet requires balls.

If you wish to get noticed you wear a pink ribbon on your lapel.

Did the "pink ribbon" idea come from the old Spike Milligan TV show... Q5?

I seem to remember that for the whole series, Spike and the gang went around with luggage tags attached to a lapel or pocket etc..

They weren't written on...
