Kilroy-Silk promises surprises with his new party

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

So Kilroy-Silk promises surprises with his new party? It’ll be composed entirely of trans-sexuals who are having affairs with homosexual dwarves? That’s the kind of person he’d be used to, after all his TV work.

How can he possibly beleive that this little party of his is ever going to get anywhere? He’s a delusional fool. But I’ll be watching the party launch (if anybody’s showing it) for the comedy value.

Now I’m off to watch PMQs.

Even by Kilroy standards, this was a surprise. So I guess he delivered.

I know there’s a massive sticky note at the top of this post decrying its age, but I’ve just stumbled across it and spent half an hour wrestling with myself about whether I should delete it.

I can’t believe that I wrote about people from the LGBT community, or for that matter people of short stature, as the butt of an offensive joke in this way. I’m ashamed of myself.
