I'm not sure where this belongs; it's in the Super-Twat mould, but will, inevitably, overlap withP&OBI.


Name eight public figures whom you would like to maroon on a desert island. In the event of a rescue ship turning up, but with only enough room for seven, which one would you leave behind?

I have to say the eight public figures I consider to be the worst, I wouldn’t want to waste a good desert island on them. The moon perhaps, though may be one of the moons of Jupiter would be better. Much less chance of a ship showing up to rescue any of them!

Elon Musk would rescue them…

It's difficult enough narrowing it down to just eight. As for only leaving one behind. If Keith Lemon stayed that means Farage would have to come back. If Farage stayed then Looza Fox would have to be rescued. If Looza Fox... Well. You get the picture.

I wouldn’t include him in the bottom eight, there are far to may in the queue before him. He definitely has the capacity for dickishness, but on the whole I’d rate hike as one of the least worse in class.

Hmmm. Interesting dilemma.

I'm still debating if I select upon a 'punishment' basis or a 'prevent further damage' basis.

How many places are there on the Tory front bench?  Have to spare three, though, to make room for Le Pen, Mélenchon and Zemmour.

Oh, and could the desert island please be a sandbank in the Bay of Bengal?
But they never got to Carcassonne.

If I go for the 'prevent further damage' then high on my list would be Farage, Orban, Bolsonaro, Putin, Trump, Johnson, Duda, Le Pen.

The problem is the ghouls we know are not a cause, they're a symptom.

Remove 8, another 8 will appear in their place.

We need something like 8000 places or maybe 8 million, and then it becomes concentration camp mark 2.

Stick 'em in a rubber dinghy with a paddle in North Africa and tell 'em they're let off if they make it to Europe.
There's no vibrations, but wait.

No. It's actually easier from South African than North Africa.

Can we send 'em to a Traffic Island, in Afghanistan?  Do I get to pick which Diane Abbot gets left behind? Can we take Six, leave her a Friend to annoy?
