Pete: education. A shoo-in.

Joe Offer: Elf Secretary

My private secretary will be that dishy young lady doctor off of Holby City. No contest. Otherwise I'm not playing and you can have Blair back.

Dear Mr. Shaw, To say America has lost its
nuance and finesse would at this point draw haughty laughter.
This country has had a spectrum of executives that were perverts much like ancient Rome had theirs.

One could say "but we survived" as if no harm done. What is lost is beyond measure. Do you feel the same may be true of your country?

You'll all have to swear loyalty to the Great Pixie of Belligerence who rules by the Divine Right of The Lord of the Ancient Order of the False Dawn.

Meanwhile, on the margins the resistance quietly gathers and draw their plans against the establishment headed by The Infallible Shaw of the Unsublime Opinion and his Three Pet Musket Monkey's (Speak shite, Speak Shite and Speak Shite).

Meanwhile, the Bash Street Kids invade an egg box that has been discarded by the voice of reason on a motorway cutting somewhere near Cherwell Valley services. Marx spins in his grave, making a noise like a hum (but quite different in reality) and in a large, faceless conurbation near a phone mast the last known wild peasant walks into a Poundland and buys pair of 1.25 reading specs and later, in the local park where the hydrocarbon lake fizzes and pops and releases a reek, lies down with a bundle of post-it notes on which are written words and more words with meanings and eventually falls into a deep, dreamless sleep.

Right...

Stu will be first up against the wall, (and not in the same way as her off Holby City, not that I have ever watched it.). His three pet monkey's what? Or monkeys' for that matter, but obviously not monkeys. No chance of Stu getting pete's education post in any reshuffle then.

There will be no resistance. Or at least unless Rt Hon Mr Shaw stops his weird association with Anfield. If he doesn't, I'll lead any opposition.

Michael is harmless but just in case, get him sectioned by parliamentary decree. (Get him access to help if nothing else.)

Anyway, he can't be Prime Minister. He doesn't live in The UK. Cornwall declared UDI years ago.

Consider yourself appointed, PFR, on condition that I get to review all your photo dossiers. On the motorway services point, austerity dictates that there will be none south of Sandbach, and even that was marginal. Soft Tory southerners will have to buy those in-car plastic pee accessories with the female adapters that I've seen in the Daily Star. I have determined also that every club in the Premier League has been guilty of unfair play this season, except for Liverpool, and will each be deducted fifteen points, except for Man U, twenty-five in their case. OK, the Man U bit is a blatant piece of populism, but I foresee no objections except from MikeL2 but I can run faster than him.

I'm still working on my religion policies. Be afraid. Be very afraid...

There'll be enough sleaze if you let me into the cabinet...

If as an advisor I can appraise Prime Minister Elect Shaw of ideas for a cabinet of the talents rather than the popularity one above, courtesy of "bumped up to The Lords out of the way" Raggytash....

Michael gets minister for appeasement, which should keep him in Jerusalem most of the time, out of the way.

Terribulus can be minister for war. I'm sure he'll find some pesky foreigners to launch our inept navy towards. He can occasionally report at the dispatch box how well prepared, ready, able and willing his conscripts are. (All night sitting, that one..)

Keith can be minister for history. He is good at convincing himself of an idealised history. We'll let him find a use for all those empty churches too. If he says they are full, job sorted.

Joe Offer can be American Ambassador to The Court of St James. If we swing a deal with the pope (brown envelopes usually work), he can be the Vatican rep too. Not as funny as elf minister but more useful in that guise. He can keep an under Blackfriars Bridge for us. You can never be too sure.

BWM can be minister for Lincolnshire. We'd only have to pay him one day a week because, let's face it, not exactly a priority, is it?

PFR can be minister for pervy fun.

Dave the Gnome will be Chancellor of The Duchy of Lancaster, of course. He may be able to sort out the ethnic cleansing over territory presently under The UN radar in Todmorden.

My good friend Musket will want to be chancellor of the exchequer. No, no reason. Just saying like..... Oh and as for Musket, give him Mr Speaker. He lives in London so is available for sitting in the chair. I can be Scottish secretary. I am well qualified, being English but owning (OK, RBS mortgage really own) a house up here and claim residency.

Hi Steve

Hey oop.... if you deduct all those points from Man U. they will be negative this year.

Ok you beat us last week. I was there to watch the Pool completely outplay us. Worst United display I have seen for many a year.

I am not at all sure whether being a deity (existing or retired) precludes the esteemed Mr Shaw from holding positions of a mere mortal nature. Still, I'd vote for anyone who can provide a suitable bribe...

As to the Yorkshire question. Having moved here a mere 3 years ago I am still unsure but I think the biggest question may be "How fuckin' much?!?!?!"

As the leader of the resistance I reject all the new government's legislation without giving it a second or even a third or fourth or fifth of forth. I'll be around the 19th after the back nine has long ceased to be the final three furlongs and we plumb the depths and look into Davy Jone's Briny Ocean Tossed for some fathoms.

I hereby resign as leader of the remittance and am going to farm malingering whelks in a rockpool just outside Acocks Green. It is not written but this matters not a thingish.

I'm sure The Great Leader Shaw is a honest man made of fine beans and his Three Tumbling Muskets are of course forged from raw air and moulded into the semblance of three indistinct but bold and courageous orange balls like what them fisherpeeple use in their ganzied harassing of the ever elusive prey species.

The cabinet made of polished Tezzas as minister for fumbling and scrummaging and His Grace Joseph Special Offside (for it is himself) are good choices for the fray. There will be pudding.

PFR must be put out with cat or a fire hose or an "in" vote or even one of those triangular bits of plastic you find in rummage draws.

Excerpt from Hansard, 15th March 2016.

The House met around tea-time.

Prayers were led my His Grace The Reverend Father Joseph Offer (blessed be his name), with attendant Pete (back from stoning homosexuals at dinner time).

Mr Speaker in the chair.

Prime Minister Steve Shaw: As a honest man of heritages vast and working class as is my wont I hereby declare a statue of myself shall be erected in Parliament Square to be used as a shrine to my all knowing and graceless genius.

cries of "right on" and "yer wot?" from the government benches, cries of "oo-oo" from the Musket monkeys

Speaker: Leader of the opposition, Ake

Ake: I reject the PM's proposal utterly as it will encourage foreigners, "liberals" and pigeons. I propose an alternative, namely a statue of Donald Drumpf and Our Lady of The Divine Misery Margaret Thatcher going at it like knives. I would just like to say "liberals" one more time as no-one understands it in the context I use it and wot I made right up, and also "cucumbers" because it takes more calories to say, hear and comprehend than there is in "cucumbers".

Punkfolkrocker: Cor! I've still got lead in me pencil too. Wey hey!

Prime Minister Shorn: I reject the honourable Ache's suggestion and amend my motion (pardon) to include smaller statues, recumbent at my oily feet of Raggy and his beardy, MGM and his lion with me standing on Keith's prize-winning swede.

Teribus: I donate all my kidneys to the queen; my hampton to Phil the Greek; my gnarled, pointy finger to Iain Duncan Smith to point at the filthy peasants; my liver to Nicola Sturgoen's hair surgeon and my brain to... hold on, who stole me friggin' brain? Bastards! You're all wrong!

At this point Terbium storms out of the chamber and was last seen licking the welcome mat at the MOD.

Musket Monkeys: Oo-oo! We're better than you all! We have more money that you all! We know it all! Our agreement with your point can be seen as vindication in the eyes of the feckless middle class! Anyone got any nuts?

Keith: May I humbly propose myself as the new minister for provoking an argument?

The house divides

Speaker: Vote in favour.

Keith: I never said that!

PM Shore: You bloody did:

Ake: "liberals!"

Keith: You're putting words into my mouth!

MGM: Punctuation!

PM Shaw: That's my line!

The Musket Monkeys start throwing poo at everyone

Musket Monkeys: Oo-oo! Superior we is! Maggots, the lot of you!

"His Holiness Joe Offer picks up his crozier and proclaims: THIS THREAD IS CLOSED". Cries of "shame" and "I knew it!". Everyone repairs to the Sweaty Nun for a pint or five and to play a few tunes.

Stu. You forgot the bit where we three hire a pick up, put expensive dining room chairs on the back (none of yer MFI crap) and sit on it whilst being driven round flicking Vs at the peasants.

Out of interest, it would be easy for us to throw shit at dishonourable members because we would demand exclusive access to the strangers' gallery overlooking the floor of the house, to save us having to cohort with the proletariat.

If you think we flick shit, wait till M'Unlearned Friend The Solicitor General Bridge introduces his private member's bill to allow chippy bastards to whinge without us laughing at them.

(True story this but, regarding shit and the House of Commons. Back when I was Lord High NHS (authority chair, there to look pretty and open health centres with posh plaques) for our area, I had to meet regularly with our two MPs, Harry Barnes and Dennis Skinner. Dennis told me about back when he was a new MP in 1970, and the first time the speaker admonished him. Some protesters had entered the strangers' gallery when a debate on farming was taking place. They threw a carrier bag full of cowshit. Most of it landed on the floor and a fair amount on Tam Dalyell. The speaker ordered clearing of the chamber, and Dennis objected, saying they couldn't adjourn because there was a motion on the floor.

No idea how embellished his account was but I suppose he got years of fun over telling the story...

Actually, I can't claim all the credit for the latter as Theresa May started it in 2010 so that she could show off her shoes whilst defaecating. She struggled a bit as she found she could only do it by keeping her knickers at knee level, which kept busting the elastic.

Dick, we must maintain discipline. The only naughtiness I'm sanctioning is affairs with other members' wives or even with other husbands' members. Actually, I want a duck house so I'm temporarily lifting the ban on corrupt expenses claims, but make it snappy. It was all this talk of bills that put me in mind of it.

Let's see, I need a pad in Westmister for all night sittings, one near Brick Lane so I don't have to stagger too far after a meal and one down Soho so I can lead a government inquiry into the lifestyle of Betty Swollox, or Mrs Gimp Bitch as she prefers to call herself these days.

I also need a full time accountant to organise the expenses flipping between them and my constituency castle. Oh, and someone to deal with the moat latrines. (Guess who I am considering offering that post to.)

I stand more chance of passing legislation than any of the freeloaders trying to weasel their way into PM Shaw's government because I have a larger private member.

I don't have a bill though *. Of course I could get a bill, attach springs to my hands and feet and bounce around Betty Swollox's bedroom and pay for it via my car allowance. It's called the four sprung duck technique.

(After Steve's Bill Withers joke, the level needed adjusting.)

Dave, if you are going to be Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster I would have expected you to be working on maximising it's income.

I realise you are likely to embezzle at least 50% but that's fine. Even on present "reported" income we'll each get £8 million apiece. However that's less than a 3% return from total assets in excess £472 million.

Even accounting for someone already taking a rake-off I'm sure you could do better.

I have some ideas about the running of the estate and I would like to see reductions in the costs of those Lancashire holdings, you can make that up by increasing rent to those holdings in Cheshire and London, especially the Savoy Estate, you can make them weep if you want.

You can have a reshuffle whilst at the dispatch box, or pocket billiards as it's known. The late Cecil Parkinson (died just after Bowie and provided the soundtrack to Cameron's youth) told a story of when he returned to the front bench after being in purdah for having a kid with his secretary, he was talkin with his hand in his pocket. Dennis Skinner's voice floated across the house "stop playing with yourself." His speech was ruined because he started stuttering. The reason being the moral dilemma of if he keeps his hand in his pocket everyone would think he was playing with himself. If he took it out as per the order, it was proof he had been playing with himself.

We could combine the two. I could declare myself Divine Leader, a walking saint, just like that Kim Zu Jim Up Fuk Sik Ill bloke in North Korea, whatever his name is.

He was actually called Joseph Rudyard Kipling, and used Rudyard professionally, presumably as being more distinctive. I expect it was a family name from somewhere back one side or the other [like my Grosvenor] — often given as a middle name, & can be used professionally: I adopted mine into my byline when I started reviewing for The Times & The Guardian back in the 1960s to avoid confusion with Michael Meyer, well-known as translator of and authority on Scandinavian playwrights Ibsen & Strindberg.

So it wasn't a family name, as I speculated, but a bit of sentimental family memorabilia. But my point that he probably adopted it professionally as being more distinguished and arresting than his first name, by which they would probably have meant him to be known, still stands.

As Steve struck a deal with me in a fish restaurant in Scotland regarding timetable of handover of power to me... My first edict once ensconced in No.10 and having ripped out the sound proofing Special Branch put in to deal with his gob irons.... Is to disenfranchise The Church of England. Disestablishmentarianism is something I always wanted to do. I bought all the books on how to do it.

After all, only HM Liz and a couple of percent of people are practicing Christians, so if we are to have a state religion (other than Sheffield Wednesday, obviously) it may as well be Islam because more people in the country observe its demands on their time.

Oh, and ban God bothering lyrics set to Neil Young songs. AND those bloody glove puppets they use to indoctrinate children. Whilst I'm at it, we can turn churches into folk club venues.

Good point about waging war. In the true spirit of 1984, we need permanent enemies to demonise. The trouble with my two-state solution, Cornwall and Yorkshire (three if you count Britain) is that they're not really distant enough from each other. I had considered getting Denmark to invade the Isle of Man so that we could wage bogus hostilities against them (bogus equals cheap, and we need money for expenses claims. I'm no fool, you know). But then I thought, what's the bloody point, let Denmark keep it anyway. Yeah, this war business is a work in progress.

We will, of course, have to deal with the issues of economic and humanitarian migrants. Now we are supposed to have a housing shortage but we also have approx. 635,000 empty house. So if we train the incoming people in various trades in the building industry they can revamp the empty houses. I also suggest the development of two new towns to help house these people in an integrated fashion. I would suggest one new town should be sited near London, say Hertford. The other should appeal to those who prefer a more scenic location I would suggest the west coast of Argyle. Government departments could be relocated to these new towns, for starters I would suggest the Dept of Work and Pensions and Revenue and Customs, together with the Dept of Culture, Media and Sports.

Aye, they all start lurching to the right eventually.

Are you sure there's room for a meeting on his armchair?

Dammit, the sex party has been raided, before I even got there. I was only late because the fancy dress shop had run out of Nazi regalia, something or other about a couple of princes hiring the whole lot. And I was NOT going as a chambermaid (all they had left), not with those sex-starved Tory peers. Still, lucky me, at least I'm still clean.

I wonder if Mandelson is still available...

Nah, George Osborne's yachting companion. I was going to ask ask him about austerity, but then I realised that Cornwall is more sheepterity. Going back to that Cobra meeting, I asked that alleged intelligence bloke where my chopper was located.

What the hell were they all laughing at?? Twots!

You need to debrief them to find out what they were laughing at. Probe those bums!
