Vote for a hung Parliament

I like the idea, but they have their tense wrong.

I would vote for a hanged parliament.

Does that mean hung as from lamp-posts, with piano-wire? If so, I'm all for it!

Ampers said...

That's it, and by the balls until they rip off, then back up and by the neck.

(I learnt a lot in Africa) :-)

Now, now, now, that`s enough of that! If there`s any hanging to be done, it will be done properly. A fair trial, a hearty meal, a priest on hand to take a time-limited confession and then the condemned to be dragged kicking and screaming out onto the Gallows, that Glorious Instrument of GOD`s Mercy. In public, yes.

Standing around in your sunday best, you may sing "Shall We Gather At The River", toffee apples to be handed out to the fascinated, watching children.

Hundreds of MPs gradually winding their way through a production line of justice.

I hope the hearty meal is for you Albert, they've dined enough on the public purse!

1. Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?
* Refrain:
Yes, we’ll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.
2. On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will talk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day.
3. Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.
4. At the smiling of the river,
Mirror of the Savior’s face,
Saints, whom death will never sever,
Lift their songs of saving grace.
5. Soon we’ll reach the silver river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease;
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.

I would prefer Madame Guillotine,

I always fancied giving knitting a go!.

Fuck knitting. Sit there playing with a Nintendo DS while the troughers all get troughed.
