    • With the exception of Farage and UKIP I just take it as read that they are all rabid anti smokers, even the hypocrites who smoke. 

  1. Not only a non-smoker, but a non-drinker and a vegetarian.    Is there anything to like about this odious wretch ?

  2. Now I couldn't give two shits about British politics but what about Nigel Farage?  He seems like a guy with his head screwed on correctly.

    • I can look on the mob over there with a nice sense of detachment.  If I had to live there, then Farage would get my vote every time.

  3. Which Irish politicians smoked a pipe? Jack Lynch comes to mind. Any others?

    So Corbyn is a veggie. He won't be buying the missus a crocodile leather handbag if he visits the Nile or the Zambesi.

  4. Corbyn is as far up his own arse as all the rest of them. He would be a nightmare on stilts if he ever got any real power..Fuck, he'd put a bunch of feminazis in all the major ministries, make Islam the official religion and make tobacco illegal. There is absolutely nothing to recommend him, nothing; beard notwithstanding. If you think UK is a nanny state now, under Corbyn, it would be a nanny state on steroids. Australia would be green with envy.

  5. <i>but rather sounds like he has lived a reasonably ordinary life</i>

    'fraid not. Apparently he started of working for the Unions, became a Councillor and eventually entered Parliament in 1983. True that he didn't go to Eton, but that start plus decades in SW1 would make him as far removed as Mr Cameron from us plebs.

    Anyone who is as seriously Right On as Mr Corbyn is no more a person to spend an evening in the pub with than the man he replaces.

  6. He did attend a private prep school and grew up in a lovely Manor House too, never had a job outside unions and politics so not quite an ordinary man of the people. Still the Tom and Jerry show should be fun! BTW I understand Harold Wilson only smoked a pipe in public and privately smoked cigars, at least he did smoke and that's a plus these days.
