In the House of the Waxing Weasel

Sometimes, our glorious leaders leave a goal so wide open that even a down-on-his-luck end-of-the-pier comedian would be ashamed to take advantage of it. Luckily, I am no such comedian.

Brought to my attention in a Metro fluff-piece yesterday, the original scoop seems to have been scored on June 6th by political blogger Mark Wallace. The plot goes like this:

1) Francis Boulle creates, a site which aims to create "a fun and memorable tool to help the British public get to know their Members of Parliament" by - generating randomly paired pictures, and asking them which politician they would rather have sex with. The results are then used to generate shaggability wrankings for the whole disorderly House. Figures for which politicians people think they have already been more screwed by, are outside the remit of this forward-looking enterprise.

2) The PICT (Parliamentary Information, Communication and Technology) office feels compelled to block access to the site from the Palace of Westminster, where it has become an overnight sensation. Suspicion runs rampant that MPs were wasting too much time voting for themselves.

Yes, O Children of Albion, your leaders do give a toss!

A classic American demonstration of this fundamental civic virtue is celebrated by the Foremen in this catchy little ditty. It is most massively unsafe for work...

...except, of course, for those who are presently self-employed.
