Party time — 10 Comments

  1. Is there not an Irish version of Screaming Lord Sutch heading a magnificent Monster Raving Loony party? I actually voted for them once, having done a similar appraisal to yours above. They were the only party left that didn't make me want to throw myself off the nearest cliff in despair.

    Needless to say, Lord Sutch didn't make it to No. 10, despite my endorsement.

    If I was in the UK now, I'd probably certainly vote for UKIP in the hope that they could restore some sanity and common sense to government.

    • Your strike button doesn't appear to be working. 'Probably' appeared struck out in this here comment box, but when uploaded to 'comments', it unstruck itself.

      • Bugger!  You're right.  I can only test it if I'm logged out and can only try to fix it if I'm logged in.  Bugger again.

        • Latest – spent hours trying to a) find a fix and b) an alternative.  No joy.  It looks like this will have to be a no-strike union free zone.

          Heh! Looks like it works for me but just not for anyone who isn’t logged in.

          • Your blog is a funny old set up, what with the row of functions above the comment box that don't all work (I remember I had problems with the 'upload image' button not so long ago), that weird double action 'paste' function and stuff.

            Is it possible to use html in the comments here?

            • The core code in WordPress changed a while ago and that caused all sorts of upsets.  I like those buttons as they provide a bit of extra functionality [and there is a much greater range in the area for post writing].  For a reason I cannot fathom they work perfectly for me but not for someone who isn't logged in.  I tried about six other alternative plugins yesterday and none of them worked, so the best I can do is leave them in their semi-working state and hope that someone somewhere comes up with a fix.

              As far as I know, if you try to use HTML in the comments, the code converts the code into <em>text</em> on the assumption that you want it to be seen.

              Yup. That’s what happens – see above!

              • Heh! I just love computers! For all their sophistication and technical wizardry, they still seem to have an ornery streak that can defy any analysis. We just have to accept their little quirks and fits of pique and work round them. Still, I can live with that. It's a small price to pay.

    • The nearest we have to the Monster Raving Loony Party is Lucinda Creighton, but she seriously thinks she has a chance, which disqualifies her straight away.  Indeed, if Nigel wanted to start an IRLIP party he would definitely get my vote.  He is the nearest thing to sanity in a mad world.

  2. If Herself runs as an Independent Housewife will you go canvassing the neighbours not to vote for her?

    • More to the point – if I ran as an Independent Housewife would anyone vote for me?
