Witch political doll

Following on from a posting last week where we discussed how a moribund right-wing organisation could be taken over by a 'helluva scary witch' comes news that an enterprising doll manufacturer has brought to market a Christine O'Donnell witch Doll-for it is she who is the scary witch

She is not the only politician to have a doll marketed promoting their likeness. The same fate befell the excellent Lib Dem MP for Somerton and Frome,David Heath. I'm not sure whether it was the deciding feature in his hard fought victory against the Tory Annunziata Rees-Mogg. By the way I am a liitle impressed with Ms Rees Mogg, not only did she resist pressure from Central office to call herself Ann Mogg she also made an extraordinarily gracious speech in defeat praising David Heath and saying in that he was a good MP and Somerton and Frome was safe in his hands.Now compare and contrast that with our own count where the Tory didn't even speak after the result-not even to thank the staff let alone to congratulate the winner.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.
