Flatty Pickles

You have been missing out this summer if you were not following Pickles Road Trip where two students carried a cardboard cut out of Eric Pickles around America, posting photos along the way. The Mail have a pretty good summary today. They’re back now, and finally Pickles has come to face to face with with his wafer thin doppelgänger.

    Look at the big fat useless idiot. The commons is off balance now Diane Abbott isn’t on the opposing benches for ballast.

    His father used to tell him not to pull his twin brother by the ear like that!

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
