    No, I have been generally much happier since I married her so "Good.....from a point" would probably be more apt.
    Edit - In the interests of ballanced reporting I should also add, only one had the decency to marry me.

    Smileys are often used to flag-up an attempt (however feeble ;)) at humour. They provide a useful way of alerting readers to any comments which might appear to be serious, but are in fact, flippant. ;) They are particularly helpful for people who have limited ability to recognise humour. ;) ;) ;) :D :D (That's enough Smileys. Ed )

    My problem with DC is that he should never have been in the position he was. Advisers to the PM or a Minister should be a civil servant or an elected politician. A "special" adviser, if required, should be vetted in the same way as the Americans vet their president's chosen team.

    DC even said so himself.

    By contrast, my problem with BJ is that he should never have been.

    Cummings would agree with you but was equally dismissive of the alternative.

    There's some shocking headlines on the internet...

    Would be true if he admitted it! That would shock us all.

    He has been known to use the word "splaff" too, so it is quite fitting.

    Now that is an abuse of parliamentary privelege!

    You mean even worse than the one who was in coalition with the Liberals and promised a referendum on EU membership (in spite of being pro EU himself) believing it would increase his share at the next election but the Liberals would still be able to veto a referendum? Then when they had a majority he failed to campaign against leaving - even Paxo said Cameron was certainly the worst PM since Lord North, and quite possibly the worst ever!

    Yes, probably true - but fortunately, nobody gives two f**ks about his opinions. :D (well, I don't, at least)
