I can’t believe I sat through that Mrs Pritchard thing this evening. When it wasn’t insulting the entire male gender, it was throwing every non-nonsense-Northern-lass cheesy cliché into the pot. That’s before we get onto the factual and procedural errors – Blair standing at the next election?

But my favourite moment of all was the sight of the ballot paper – with the ‘United Kingdon Independance’ candidate listed above the eponymous heroine. Check it on your Sky+ box… that’s what it said. Ouch.
