Everyone remember back when I said I really fancy Sue Perkins?. Well, it's been a great week on that front; she was on Heresy on Tuesday (from which this post gets its headline - anyone else get the reference?), and then she was on The News Quiz tonight as well (both on Listen Again at the moment, can't find the MP3 downloads on a quick search). Memorable quote on Ruth Kelly:
She's not fit for any century ... she's walked towards a load of jobs she's no good at.
We repeat, Ruth Kelly: she's rubbish and should resign.

If I get time over the weekend, I might put up a poll of the current cabinet and ask for people to vote for those likely to make it through to Brown's cabinet. Reid's already gone, Hodge has to go, as does Hewitt, others I'm not so sure of; Gordo'll need to do a clean sweep in many respects. Ah well.

In other news, had the crappiest megabus driver ever today, but apart from traffic and his inability to stop effectively, was OK. Then I managed to not get off the train at Brighouse. D'oh! So instead of getting to Elland just about now for a nice drink in Jennie's pub, I missed the last bus and am waiting for her here; I'm actually about to take the dog fora walk. Ouch...
Mat is happy.  Mat dragged [livejournal.com profile] nadriel away from Warcrack today and we went into Camden to meet [livejournal.com profile] innerbrat for lunch at the cafe I've always liked there.

Apart from the half of the Northern Line that we needed being shut, and them digging up half the road in Camden, it was nice. After food (have I mentioned I love Halloumi? I think I may have), we went to the Dev, where we talked geeky stuff and drank merrily. I like the Dev.

As a consequence, Mat is now not sober. And typing in third person. Sorry about that, awful habit, I'll blame Mike.

Anyway, I now have food cooked, and he want to do stuff and then read over his job application form due in tomorrow. So I'm going to eat and play R-Type on the PS2, there should be a post later on [livejournal.com profile] voting_taktix in which I channel Steve ([livejournal.com profile] tyrell) mightily, because, basically, Ruth Kelly is shit and should resign. And shockingly, this week, it's because she can't actually do her job, rather than because of decisions she's made out of work that merely proved she was shit at her previous job.

That's assuming Mike let's me back at the computer for a bit.
