The last prayer is that there is something brewing for Jan 1st 2021 and no deal Brexit.

If a startling true-blue Tory broadside of low tax, Freeport zones, unilateral free trade, disbanded BBC, privatised tranches of the public sector, et al, doesn't erupt onto the national and global stages from HMG and take the EU and world by storm, then we Blightians are all doomed.

The incompetence and void just can't go on past the end of this year. They must have been planning something other than this reactive blue socialism all this time.

Mustn't they?

SoD

SoD you hit the nail on the head.

Blue socialism is manifesting itself all over the once civilized world and I don't see it turning about soon - or for that matter within my lifetime.

Not quite as old as Duffers but old enough to be somewhat disappointed that all the gains made over a couple of centuries are to be thrown on the scrap heap of history.

Boris sits in Downing Street with a vast array of buttons, levers and knobs. They are not connected to anything..... I spent 7 years in Whitehall.

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!!!!

SO, OVERNIGHT AND WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A 'BY YOUR LEAVE', SODDING 'MS' HAVE TOTALLY CHANGED MY SCREEN LAYOUT AND, YOU WILL NOT BE SURPRISED TO KNOW, I HAVEN'T THE REMOTEST IDEA HOW TO SORT IT.

NEEDLESS TO SAY, 'SOD' IS ON THE MISSING-LIST SO THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO UNTIL TOMORROW WHEN MY FRIENDLY, NEIGHBOURING 'TECHI-BOD' IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

DON'CHA JUST HATE MS!

Well David, at least we can all see you and hear you today! Would there be a photo of you to go with it?

Yeah David I second Whitewall! That last one (if memory serves) is near on a decade old.

Except, this time, how's about some "normal" clothing - neither Andra or Sister Wolf seem to be paying much attention so I'm not expecting they'll be blogging much criticism to the fashion world.

I think David was wearing his army olive green long John's on that occasion. The white ones showed skid marks.

Nah worries David, as generally happens whenever a post occurs that ain't quite got that ol' D&N Dazzle - JK comes across some jokes (in pictures this time though)

Just in time for Monday!

I read somewhere that Williamson hasn't been sacked yet because he's being kept so that when the return to school turns into the usual disaster he can be sacked then.

Sounds plausible.

In the absence of Monday Funnies I thought I’d leave this here.

THIS IS WHY WE LOVE CHILDREN

1) NUDITY I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mom, that lady isn't wearing a seat belt!'

2) OPINIONS On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.'

3) KETCHUP A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.'

4) MORE NUDITY A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?'

5) POLICE # 1 While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop?

Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report.

'My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?'

'Yes, that's right,' I told her.

'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'

6) POLICE # 2 It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me.

'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked.

'It sure is,' I replied.

Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?'

7) ELDERLY While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'

😎 DRESS-UP A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.'

'And why not, darling?'

'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'

9) DEATH While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cottonwool, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased.

The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said: 'Glory be unto the Faaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he goooes.' (I want this line used at my funeral!)

10) SCHOOL A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!'

11) BIBLE A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.

'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out.

'What have you got there, dear?'

With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear!'

NOW IF THIS DIDN'T BRIGHTEN YOUR DAY,GO BACK TO BED AND FORGET IT.

A fine selection WF!

Thanks Wiggers!
