"SIR" Eric effing Pickles???!!!

In the name of all that is holy, how the &uck did that ever happen???

All half decent "sirs" should hand back their gongs in protest as they are now less than worthless.

I have an intrinsic loathing of that man as it was him an Vince Cable who lied to my face when I asked them directly if the Regional Development Agency I was working at was going to close.

I'm not normally one to be prejudiced (honest) but was there ever a bigger fat c**t than him?

Eric Pickles. Even his name fits like a glove. He's the stereotype northern plain-speaker who says what he likes and likes what he says. Ever-courteous and polite while eviscerating local government, with a chummy, jowly grin.

An appalling human being, gleefully benighted and now been knighted.

Nicolas Soames' mistress described having rumpy pumpy with him as "having a wardrobe fall on top of you with the key still in it." 😳

The Tories are pushing in more ex MPs and ministers so they have more control of the second chamber. They don't care because they don't need to, no opposition so they can do what they like.

Depressing, very depressing.

Just imagine how you'll feel in 5 years when Lord Cameron takes his seat in the upper house.

Great to see all these leading luminaries getting their deserved seats at the top table.At least, he'll be able to enjoy a nice Chateau Laffite to reward him for his well deserved efforts. I'm sure under all your adverse comments about this Wonderful man, you will happily finance his penchant for Fillet stake, with an agreeable Grand cru. Won't you?

Hope they have good health cover as, iirc, Pickles is too fat to get surgery under the NHS, no?

Honestly. I am castigated for calling you Tory Boy, and you come up with this nonsense.

FFStake :doh:



On the positive side, it'll be funny watching the fat waff trying to "arise".

I'd happily finance a stake in his fillet. Followed by a grand cre(mation).

In much the same way as you don't need to own an Alfa Romeo to be a member of Alfaowner.com, I feel sure you don't need to own a Yot to be a member of Yotowner.com.

I think you should definitely grace them with your presence Steve.

Or do they have higher standards over there?

I have had the misfortune of meeting Eric "Who Ate All The" Pickles in my professional capacity. An arrogant (but not very intelligent) man; the worst combination. Having him as the Minister for Local Government was a bit like having Hitler as the Minister for Jews.....
