I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
I've had the dubious pleasure of having to spend time with a number of MPs.
The Labour ones were, by and large, normal blokes (some of whom talked far too much).
The Lib Dems were all schoolteachers and Indians (Indians are OK, but schoolteachers are idiots).
I could see that each one of the tories was only out for himself.
Of the three, the tories were the ones I would trust least with any kind of power over my life and the lives of my family.
And those were people that DD aspires to emulate.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
So you would trust Blair, who took this country to war on the basis of a complete lie. Brown, Darling and Balls, who between them brought the economy of this country to the point of bankruptcy. And the rest of them who would not know the truth if it bit them on the backside.
And I have met a few MPs in my time (though not as many as you), and have exactly the opposite view to yours.
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
