You are a bit slow with your update Peter . They have all been announced.

Peter Troy said...

The announcements were updated on the BBC website - which is where the postings were linked to - as they were anounced!

Thus at the time it was as they say on Sky 'Breaking News'. Now it is I agrree old news. Perhaps Anoymous you were slow logging on !

No it was you who was slow Peter. You dont care to be criticised do you!

Peter Troy said...

Anonymous, what part of "and will be updated throughout the day" do you not understand?

Obviously at the end of the day it is old news but not during the day. The posting was provided to help keep readers uptodate with the announced Government posts as they ocurred. The information was provded by the BBC.

Dont you just love to dish the dirt!

Diane Ellis said...

Well Anonymous. I have looked and I have looked but could not find a dish of dirt, looked for juicey gossip. Darling, dishing the dirt is obviously not what you were talking about. Obviously your education is sadly lacking in the english department.

So the esteemed editor has passed it to you Diane to do his dirty work I see.
That tells me something about him.
He is just so full of self esteem not to mention self importance!

Diane Ellis said...

Anonymous, you really are an insulting person, Why would Peter use me to have a go at you? I have been accused of many things but never have I been accused of being anyone's puppet, mouth piece, or doing what anyone tells me. I have my own brian, own mouth, own computer. On the point of yourself Peter and I speak with one voice but not anonymously. You are a very sad case.

Anonynous I am also full of self opinion - which is why I started this blog three years ago.

Most comments on this Blog add to the quality of debate that the postings on this blog aim to stimulate. Yours, Mrs Anonymous, are more suited to the internet forum of a television soap opera.

Well, well Diane, I hope he pays well for your loyalty darling?
I dont know who you are but think that perhaps you are his "significant other" as you seem to be of "one voice" and--
Yes Peter you clearly are very self-opinionated.
How could anyone put up with you unless you pay them, I ask mysel

Opinion according to Robert Peel "is a compound of folly, weakness, prejudice, wrong feeling, right feeling, obstincy and newspaper paragraphs". Somewhat like this blog!

Well Peter that quote from Peel was very you then. It could also have included many more adjectives that you would not admit to.
Keep it up! I,m enjoying this!

Why no comment from Diane?

Peter Troy said...

Oh yes indeed - self deprecating humour is a reacuring thread on this Blog.

Sarah Hopperty said...

Well now children calm down. This is a political Blog - you are acting like members of Parliament in the House of Commons - Order Order !

Why stop Sarah? This is fun!
The Editor needs taking down a peg or two by the Leader of the Opposition cos he thinks he is the PM.--or you could say he thinks hes the bees knees.

Well Diane, you are very loyal but do you really "speak with one voice"?
I cant believe that anyone could really go along with such pomposity as Peter displays!
