cartoons and articles, some political
One of the ladies pointed out a couple of days ago that statistically, things weren’t entirely even, so with no further ado:
For the ladies [via haiku]:
After retirement, I went to the Social Security office to apply.
The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver’s licence to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I’d left it at home. Could I go home and bring it back later?
The woman said, ‘Unbutton your shirt’. So I opened it, revealing my curly silver hair.
She said, ‘That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me,’ and she processed my application.
When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about it.
She said, ‘You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability, too.’
And that’s when the fight started….
For the men:
The single greatest reason I really like Nige and would vote for him is that he gets the very people apoplectic who are inimical to the wellbeing of this society – LibLabCon, SNP, left-liberals.
This view is not shared by all the co-authors here at NO, so this is a personal post from me.
The rationale for keeping Farage at arms length is clear. The key battle in this campaign – as both sides will tell you – is wavering Labour votes to the left of centre. Winning over Scots with a party still seen by many (rightly or wrongly) as Home Counties English with a right-wing agenda is a tough ask.
But think about it for a moment and Farage does have a case for his relevance in Scotland. More than one in 10 Scots backed the party in May, propelling David Coburn to become the party’s first Scottish MEP by taking a seat seriously eyed up by the SNP.
