For the avoidance of doubt, the Canesten is to be applied to little Timmy, otherwise known as an irritating little.........person

But, this is pure nonsense. Even if you do not agree with her politics, the PM is hardly a little person or anyone who deserves to be treated as a fungal problem.

Little Timmy is not a commonly understood expression. It's not in any proper dictionary and where it does crop up, it is a character such as a small child that wants attention.

Bloody hell Russell, "Little Timmy" and "That irritating little tw@" are commonly used alternative ways of referring to  young Mr Timothy Farron.

I'll just get me coat.

Well... I've never heard of this as a joke name for Tim Farron ..... anywhere ...... but I see the joke now ....

I suppose I'm so used to insulting muddled and confused LibDems or their supporters in a more direct way that I am failing to pick on lighter-hearted jokes ...

I think this election will be good for Labour, not in terms of winning it, but sorting out the leadership issue.

One of two things will happen.

1. Labour will do very well, and Corbyn will cement his leadership and the back bitting will stop.

2. They will bomb and he'll resign as leader.

Either way it will benefit Labour .... in the longer term

Spot on!

So, who will be the new leader for Labour this Summer?

My main concern is how many LibDem MPs will return in the South West and West of England.

Well... I saw the joke but took it the wrong way. I thought because canesten is normally used (almost exclusively) by women to relieve vaginal irritation, that wanderlust was implying that PM May was the irritant and that canesten was needed to get rid.

Having said that if you have to explain a joke it's usually because it wasn't a very good one.

Well I thought it was a good'un, so there. Obviously far too subtle for some. [beer]

There is a third option, Jeremy Corbyn will continue as leader of the Labour Party supported by the vast majority of Labour Party members whatever the outcome, and the Labour Party will grow in strength and structure under his leadership as the democratic socialist party of old.

Well they now appear to have Blair supporting them, so the answer is probably nil!

Assuming this election goes ahead which seems likely.

Whilst we are in the election booth (again) why not lump in a few more democratic choices.

1. vote for your parliamentary candidate
2. Vote to stay in or out of EU. (if Teresa May can change her mind and do U turns why can't we?)
3. If you are voting in Scotland, please see attachment A and vote for independence from the rest of UK.
4. When we leave EU (depending on the outcome of 2.) where would you like the £350,000,000 a week saved be spent (tick your preferred option)

etc, etc, etc.

Why can't we vote on whether or not the sweaties leave the UK?  That must rate as some sort of ism.

Probably illegal as "sweatist" discrimination.

No it's not an ism. Just slang. Why not give everyone in the UK the chance to vote them to leave or stay? Just ignore the English and Irish votes like the EU referendum did...

Not just slang, rhyming slang, just in case Russell wonders what you're talking about. ;)
