Tony Banks

Tony Banks is dead. Wise-cracking former Labour MP, and one of those politicians you could imagine going for a drink with. The BBC have assembled some of his wise cracks:

Margaret Thatcher 'all the sensitivity of a sex-starved boa-constrictor'
John Major 'So unpopular, if he became a funeral director people would stop dying'
Terry Dicks 'Living proof that a pig's bladder on the end of a stick can be elected to Parliament'

An irritable and funny man, he sometimes despaired of the human race and its cruelty, famously once saying he 'Looked forward to the day when the inevitable asteroid slams into the Earth and wipes us out, thus giving nature the opportunity to start again'

We've all had days like that.

  • Phew what a scorcher

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
