    I can be the same way - screw me once, shame on you - screw me twice, shame on me.

    Impressive, and considerably more principled than most humans!

    Two months? That's nothing.

    George Osborne remembered Theresa May at least 6 months later.

    Footnote for JM and Ironhead: George Osborne was Chancellor under the last Prime Minister, but was ceremonially sacked by Theresa May. He is now getting his own back by saying
    unkind things about her.

    That's not principled, that's just vindictive!

    If she'd offered him the keys to Number 11 again and he'd refused on the basis of past treatment, that would have been principled!

    Something about "dead woman walking"?

    Aus politics are atrocious, but the UK's?

    Very intelligent birds but also horrible bl**dy things. This poor ewe was attacked by ravens while defending her lambs a few years ago. We were having a lot of trouble with them at that time.

    Had to shoot her
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.
