Rubber Johnny for sale - only £3,500

7 May 2010

major It’s the morning after the night before and at the time of writing, we still haven’t got a frigging clue what is going on in terms of leadership of this brave, indecisive United of Kingdoms.

We need a totem, something to hold and touch that we can be sure of, a symbol of strong leadership in a time of utter rudderlessness. So we’re saving up for the John Major Spitting Image puppet.

Auction house Bonhams will be flogging the grey, pea-scoffing former PM on June 23rd as part of a batch of entertainment memorabilia and is expected to raise as much as £3,500, £1,300 less than the punch-drunk Gordon Brown’s puppet went for and more than £9,000 less than the sexy combo of Tony and Cherie Blair.

Still, it doesn’t really matter who gains power after today’s inter-party squabbling and cosying-up – there’s a harsh economic shit storm ahead and more of us will be jobless and potless than ever before – so £3.5k for the only Tory prime minister in living memory that didn’t make us want to be sick into our own hands can’t be too bad, can it?

    "the only Tory prime minister in living memory that didn’t make us want to be sick into our own hands..." Presumably you never visualised him shagging Edwina Currie?
