LIGHT RELIEF. (03/12/13)

Our Leader Dithery Dave is in China. Apparently he is doing really well. Perhaps they would like to keep him.

The Chinese are very grateful and have produced the following to celebrate both Dithery and his visit.

BYI_YGIIcAE-5J5              He looks wonderful. They have portrayed him out of his shed and off the tracks. It’s amazing, they know as much about him as we do.

Tomorrow the forecast is good so I hope to get out for some pictures. Thursday is back to wet and windy, we will see.

Have fun.

I can’t credit the picture as it was e-mailed to me.

    1. Yes Mark they do and they are both dangerous. The train has the good grace to set out for a destination and arrive there. Therein lies the difference.

  2. He has very big eyes but I guess he's unable to see.

    1. David, he is just up from partying. The Chinese are the very devil for the Cognac.

    1. John, I don't think it was the food. Methinks he has been on the Coke Cola again and went light on the Cola. It would explain a lot.

  6. BREAKING NEWS....Government has to scale back plans for HS2 after the Chinese see right through Dithery's bull***t ...[;o)

    1. Trevor, they are scaling up all HS2 trains will look like this from the front. From above their will be A little halo halfway down the first carriage there will be a swelling to incorporate first class. The remainder of the train will be thin, money will have run out then as the Chinese will have no one to sell to and nothing they need to buy, it will be standing only with the peasants pushing it along in relays.
      Why don't they just make the Tilting train work? They could sell that all around the world or at least to places that use welded track.

  7. Old steam train and the Conservatives...there's a joke in there somewhere. Shame the "business" group consists of Dithery's neighbour and friend of Dithery's dad and some old friends, the words "Conservative Croonies visit China" springs to mind BUT the real shame was Daves grovelling apology to the Chinese after meeting the Dali lama (is that spelt right?) no-one can have respect for a leader of a country being forced to apologise for standing up for human rights in the name of trade not least the Chinese, did/do they ever apologise?...I know where I want to shove that train!,,,,and breathe :o)

    1. Spesh, Dithery is one of the few to smile.
      The working class are on peanuts and freeze this winter. Dithery can't even manage to take his issue back home from a pub. Having said that Sam is a bit tasty looking. Perhaps it wasn't his. It's a very wise child that knows it's father.

  9. Douglas, read history. We should have gone through the growing pains of true democracy years seventy years ago. British folk died in Wales and Manchester at the hands of Churchill.
    Born into privilege is coming back and fast. It needs stopping but I'm too old and can't think of a quiet and humanitarian way to do it. I'm old I'll stand at the front of a march better me than a young one. I refuse to throw marbles under horses though. What has the horse done wrong.
    I would love the queen to bits if she said enough is enough and said the status quo is past. Half her family were Nazis. It will not happen in my lifetime. The ruling classes are back in power. All will move inexorably to the right.
    Stop working, Do what the miners did and all the dockers in the general strike. The fat bastards can't live without you grafting for them. I didn't like Gordon Brown but I did think a Brown /Clegg coallition would work. Clegg needs stoning/ sorry a good slap for duplicity. Sheffield is my home town. How could they even think of electing the twat.

    1. In good form today I see Adrian. I'm starting to read with the most recent post first. Perhaps you were just having a particularly inspired day. I shall look backwards with anticipation.

    2. Graham, I am still in pain. I'm getting better but my back is killing me. There is nothing to inspire me at the moment.

    1. Katherine, away with you and your posh words. Metaphorically speaking the bloke is a total waste of space. The Aussies would call him fuckwitted.

    2. Yes, Aussies are the ultimate wordsmiths. Hmmm.

  11. Now I like the picture but it looks like something Adrian would spend all night making with some special equipment and two or three different programs thrown together.

    1. Not at all Red. This is definitely our leader, I don't use special equipment. I use Photoshop. Do I bang on about the French and Canada depriving me of the colonies. No I don't.
      I do not like the way our little country is going.

    2. We don't cry about once being under the British Empire. The people don't have too many French English hang ups. Our politicians are the ones who have the melt downs.
      Our present prime minister is the worst one we've ever had.

    1. Graham, I hope not from the shaving mirror. Dithery is deranged. I suspect he sniffs strange powders.

  14. Maybe he can save the African elephant. China is the leader in the ivory business.

    1. Maria, he will have little interest in Elephants. He is a Hooray Henry. He is more likely to help shoot them. Anyone that would lend him a loaded gun must suffer from strange delusions.

  16. Hang about - I saw that train face on "Have I Got News For You". It really made me chuckle. I think that particular train should be shunted into the sidings and left to rot. After all, it's pretty bloody useless.

    1. YP, I don't have television. I watch selected programmes on IPlayer but missed Have I Got News For You. The picture was e-mailed to me.
      I used to help rebuild steam locomotives but this one I'd happily take a burning torch to.
