Following on from our recent series on legendary MPs, in which we exposed Nick Palmer to be the comic genius he truly is, I wanted to turn BULS’ attention to Mr. David Clelland. The Labour MP for Tyne Bridge will recieve a full BULS salute when we return to Uni in the Autumn. You may have heard that Mr. Clelland recieved a rather rude letter from a constituent, informing him that he was actually a fascist and was always voting the wrong way, for his party. Mr. Clelland sent back this wonderfully crafted letter to his constituent. I for one know similar people I would like this letter to be sent to and I hope Mr. Clelland won’t mind if I do a little copy and paste job.
Local news has reported to me this lunch time that 16 MPs have signed an EDM calling for a new energy drink, named (but containing no) Cocaine, to be banned. The idea is that it may glamorise cocaine use with youngsters, something I am dubious about.
More importantly though, why won’t Coke, or Coca Cola, which one actually did contain Cocaine and is named after it, be included in this ban? And what about my year three class teacher, Mrs Cocaine?
A Tory peer has hit headlines recently, showing himself to be a racist. In the House of Lords the ignorant and repulsive frontbencher used the phrase; “nigger in the woodpile”. Defending himself he claims the phrase was in common everyday use when he was younger. A man of his age should know better.
Dave Cameron has said we won’t be sacking racists from the Tory benches. It would be good to see him act once in a while on his words of reform and party renewal. Oh well.
