Rummy kinda makes me laugh, it’s a pity he uses his powers for evil. Nice lips.

Pic is from 53, when he was at Princeton.

Rumsfeldstiltskin’s legendary reverse Dorian Grey with doublepike and twist from the 10 metre board. Degree of difficulty – inestimable.

‘Nice lips’.

A more vulgar version of last week’s Geras-Masson game (you speculate whether you could marry a political enemy), is where everyone confesses which right-wing bastard they’ve ever had the hots for. I’m not volunteering to go second.

That sounds like a cool game. I’ve always fancied Vannessa Redgrave.

Alexandra Kerry – does she count as right wing?

I’ve got the hots for Edwina Currie, John Major’s former dish on the side.

Well, I didn’t say I exactly had the *hots* for Rummy. I will deny that til death. However. I did have a massive crush on John Anderson when I was 14, he is member for the neighbouring electorate (my MP was Ian Sinclair so you see my adolescent self had to look elswhere.)

I’d have given that Barbara Amiel hussy a proper spanking in her younger days, before Conrad got his paws on her.

And yes, Michelle Malkin, a pair of fur-lined handcuffs, a couple of jazz cigarettes, a bottle of absinthe and a feather duster would be a interesting evening in.

Ollie Stone is now talking up a film project about the rumoured fling between Maggie Thatcher and Ronny Reagan. It could well be his first true horror movie since “The Hand”. I doubt it’s gonna be called “Natural Born Thrillers” though.

JG Ballard once said Maggie was the first PM he could imagine sex with. But given he also wrote that story about Ronnie, I suspect it was Ballard just being Ballard.

Incidentally, are James Carville and Mary Matalin the only prominent cross-ideological couple?

I’d have to go with Boris de Pfeffel Johnson.
