I readily admit that this blog occasionally strays into attempted 'gentle' sexist humour. Question I have to ask is "How long can it survive before being cleansed of such unsuitable material"? Wales on Sunday's 'Spin Doctor' is putting me under intense pressure. He (or she) is at it again today. The intrepid gossip hound has been reading my post last week about an Indian Man who married his dog. I admit that when advising Mr Selvakiman on the route to a contented marriage, I rather frivolously suggested that he should resort to the tried and tested technique of 'tummy tickling' which "in my limited experience works for most marriages". Now, I was being allegorical rather than precise. Nevertheless, Spin Doctor's frequent references to Montgomeryshire politicians may well require me to adjust the 'political correctness sheep dip' so that sexist humour is eliminated.
The heading of this week's Spin Doctor was 'The drunk and the jester to go head-to-head'. It was referring to an item about Charles Kennedy possibly challenging Lembit Opik for the Presidency of the Liberal Democrats next autumn, rather than allowing my opposition at the next election a virtual shoe-in against a Baroness Ros Scott. I really think an 'Ex' should have been included in the headline - although I will leave it to readers to decide where. I'm just putting the 'Ex' before attempted gender humour!
I have to admit that I like the sort of scurrilous gossip that Spin Doctor writes. There's not nearly enough of it in Wales. And I don't mind if my blog is searched for snippets which cause me to bite lumps out of the china when I read them. In fact, this week I was referred to as 'The Tory Its Ok To Like.' Spin Doctor can't be all bad.
