Poor little Bleary Hazel is caught in the Gorgon's headlight (just the one, naturally) and about to be squished. A member of the Cabinet of All the Tyrants could not possibly survive being publicly denounced by the Leader. Bye, Bleary. I hope your replacement provides as much dark humour as you did.
Her constituency insist she will be their candidate at the next election. Nobody else wears leather like she does, and none of the alternatives can do that cute chipmunk nose-wiggle, so they're keeping her. More strange though is the decision by Luton's Labour Loonies to back Maggie Moron, the utterly discredited current incumbent.
I wonder if those constituency parties are smarter than the average bear? Perhaps they realise their candidates are likely to be humiliated at the next election, no matter who they put up, so they don't want to waste a good one this time round. Let the troughers take the flak and then announce a squeaky-clean one for the next election.
In five more years, the current madness will be a distant memory for most voters. In less than one year, the continuing disgrace of our current parliament will be clear in even the dimmest of minds.
So it's sensible for those constituencies not to wield the axe themselves, but to let the voters do it for them.
If any show up, that is...
