Prime Minister's Questions

What would you do if you saw a tortoise on its back in the baking sun, Gordon? Set up an inquiry, read the executive summary of the Report on The Care of Mobility-Impaired Testudinidae in a BWh* Climate Environment and , following consultation with stakeholders, promulgate best practice guidelines and protocols to ensure that no more tortoises would experience similar adverse lifepaths ? Or would you think "oh I can't bear to see that poor turtle in pain, struggling to get back on his feet, I must help him immediately" ?

So, let's see Leon's VK Scene from Bladerunner (available in a range of versions from all good dvd and video suppliers, or you could download or rent a copy). It's a great film and one of my favourites.

I think Gordon would order some faceless jobsworth to ensure that an unaccountable little Hitler in hi-vis slapped a penalty charge notice on the tortoise.

Agreed. And doesn't tortoise sound enough like terrorist to justify shooting it?

Now that wasn't The Tartan McReich's F├╝hrer's fault, that was The Blairs, both of them, the snivelling little rats, and Gordon hasn't yet pocketed even half the cash those slimy bastards have snaffled for themselves.

A pox on their heads.

Guilt by association is good enough for me.
