KIDS ON TRAMPOLINES SHOULD RUN THIS COUNTRY

A couple of weeks ago I read in a Sunday magazine that Fiona Phillips, one of the best known faces on breakfast TV, had been offered a ministerial post in the Department of Health by Gordon Brown. Because she isn’t a Member of Parliament the job offer came with a peerage attached and she would have become Baroness Phillips!

Why? If she was one of the TV “heavy weights” I MIGHT understand why, but on the face of it she is just a fluffy bit of stuff, admittedly popular but, in my judgement, without any commercial or political experience, and certainly not qualified for that post. Another “yes” man for Gordon to bully? Thankfully she declined.

In fact, I think that my two great granddaughters would make a better job of running the NHS, the eldest of whom was 7 on Saturday.

Which leads me on nicely to the subject of her birthday, one of her birthday gifts was a trampoline and the whole neighbourhood of children came into the garden to celebrate with her! In fact the two girls went to the roller disco at teatime and the whole neighbourhood of children stayed behind on the trampoline until 10.00 pm.

Luckily my granddaughter and her fiancé love children and entertained the whole neighbourhood of children again the next day when they all played on the WII! One little foreign boy only has one word of English and that is the fiancés name. He comes in to play with him! Ahh!

I'm writing in my cat Pyewackit for President...he's well fed and fat and content and leaves everyone else alone! I'd say he has a sight more brains than any of the three that are running...

Don't get me started with that bullying Gordon Brown - the children couldn't do any worse. M :-)

What is it about Gordon Brown that I dislike so much? Apart from his unfortnate habit of gasping for breath when he speaks, his shify eyes, his sullen face, his superior look, his sallow skin and they way that every time he opens his mouth out pops another lie.
