What a load of old cobblers

My eyes have started to water. My knees are firmly locked together. I have just read an article in today's Telegraph about how men's testicles are going to be used to help fight diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. It seems that a team of scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York believes that cells taken from these most precious of man's possessions could be used in place of more controversial embryonic stem cells. I would have thought that this new idea would itself be fairly controversial - especially for the prospective donors.

This team of scientists do seem to have something of a testicles obsession - and have already used rat's testicles to grow beating heart cells. This combination of removal and implantation has made me think about whether these experiments have already been used. Ask yourself this dear readers. Are there any groups in our society that lack the b***s to take tough decisions, and have rat-like loyalty in their hearts? I speak to you as a politician.

As I had my first appointment for a vasectomy yesterday I'd happily donate mine now to any good cause providing there's no pain involved of course. It sounds like a bunch of gonads...

Glyn Davies said...

anon - I wouldn't sacrifice anything. I 'enjoyed' my vasectomy on my mother-in-law's birthday 28 years ago - and it has not made the slightest difference to my life. In fact I partook of the birthday festivities as if nothing had happened. I have always been supportive of the vasectomy because it is such a minor procedure - while the female equivilent is a major operation.

What does Glyn Davies have to say about David Davies, fellow party member but no relative I hope!!

Glyn Davies said...

Alan - I know what David thinks. Nothing new. Although I do not agree with him, I do respect his opinion and realise that many Welsh people agree. I have always thought it a mistake to dismiss what David (and others) think. It is a debate within my party which has to be won by sound argument and reason. I must add that in Montgomeryshire there are many supporters of other parties that agree with David Davies

What a load of B****cks lololol
David Davies isnt he more the UKIP end of the party though Glyn. I think I would veer more to the DJE and David Melding side
