Pre-election [4]

28.  Last questions

If you had the chance to put one last, one line question to ONE of either the blue, red, yellow and turquoise leaders in front of you on the podium, what would that final question be?

27.  Preheating pot and cup

Given that the base tea is Yorkshire, just ordinary Yorkshire, why the huge disparity between brewing methods. I don’t even use a method as such, not in an ideologically fanatical way – there just happens to be a pot and cup combination on my shelf.

The tea is Ok in a mug but once the pot is prewarmed, the cup rinsed and still hot, the dash of milk and half a fork of sugar in the warm cup, the boiling water applied to the pot, then the towel around the pot, then the one finger pour, then the water still hot, the tea is suddenly transformed into something else again.

And I don’t fully understand why.

26.  Cheese fondue dipper

25.  What message does this send?

More than 1,000 women were SPARED jail in 2018 after attacking police officers as number let off with a fine doubles in ten years

24.  Mea Culpa

Yep, all right, all right, I made an error with the numbering – this thing’s not easy you know for someone with the possible beginnings of dementia. Other than that, fighting fit.

    #26: Celery, carrot sticks, radishes, small boiled potatoes. I’ve never tried chips but it’s tempting.

      Try it and report, sir.

    The Japanese have nothing on the British Tea Ritual. 🙂

    Though my Yank self longs for the quiet Sunday morning with a tenderloin biscuit, strong cup of Medaglia d’Oro, and a too-strong cigarette…

    #28 Why are you supporting the climate change scam and so destroying the country?

  5. December 11, 2019 at 19:09

    Both – whom are you addressing the q to?

      All of them. There isn’t any difference between them in their support for this scam.

    26. Small pieces of frankfurter. Rich but tasty.

      Great for the waist.

    28. Mr Corbyn, it is alleged that you have attended the funerals of HAMAS terrorists, IRA terrorists, and PLO terrorists. When was the last time you attended the funeral of a member of the British military who died in the service of their country?

    • December 11, 2019 at 22:59

      All those questions – yes.

      Well, tomorrow’s the day.

    #27 It could be entirely psychological: the times when you’re inclined to conduct a full ceremony, rather than simply making utility tea straight in the mug, might indicate a more positive state of mind, hence everything seems to be simply better – including the tea. Taking notes on whether the shortbread fingers also taste better might yield further clues.
