Who Will Contest The Next Election

First it was Ester Rantzen, announcing her decision to stand at the next election, as an Independant. Now, according to the Telegraph Lynn Faulds Wood may well follow suit.
If the trend continues we could have an all celebrity House of Commons. Perish the thought!


There is a very tall coconut tree and there are four animals. A giraffe, a squirrel, a monkey and a lion. As they passed by they decided to compete to see who is the fastest to get a banana off the tree.

Who do you guess will win?

Your answer will reflect your personality.

Poem - Blankney Christmas

Blankney Christmas

It's Christmas eve in Blankney
Another year has slipped away
And soon the peal of advent bells
Will tell us that it's Christmas day
Through cottage windows log fires glow
On paper chains so jolly
And robins flit from branch to branch
Of snow capped firs and holly
From winters cold and frosty sky
Stars twinkle in the night
Brighter and more beautiful
Than any fairy light
And with the dawn of Christmas day
Amidst excited shouts
Children with their new toys play
Whilst Mum peels brussel sprouts
Feuding families keep the peace
And share a glass of sherry
United for a day at least
To keep this Christmas merry
The food and wine have sent to sleep
Both uncle Bill and auntie Pat
And listening to this years Queens speech
Sits grandma in her paper hat
The Christmas tree now sheds its pines
The glitter falls from off the cones
And all that's left of Christmas now
Are broken toys and turkey bones

Confessions Of A Hooker
A couple were lying in bed together on the morning after their tenth wedding anniversary when the wife says, "Darling as this is such a special occasion, I think that it is time I made a confession. Before we were married I was a hooker for eight years."
The husband ponders for a moment and then looks into his wife's eyes and says. "My love, you have been a perfect wife for ten years, I cannot hold your past against you, in fact maybe you could show me a few tricks of the trade and spice up our sex life."
She said, "I don't think you understand. My name was Brian and I played rugby for New Zealand." ........
