Poor Elliot Morley, Early Onset Alzheimers Case?
It's sad how there are enormous but patchy black holes in some of our politicians' memories. Perhaps it's an excess of aluminium in the water supplied to the Houses of Parliament, or an over exposure to taxpayer subsidised first growth claret in its many bars, or maybe it's a symptom of swine fever?
I mean, take dear Elliot "Pig Face" Morley as an example. Here's a fine upstanding Nuliebore Minister, working all night and day to sell out our farmers and fishermen to the EUSSR, slaving away to ensure he has the most troughing rights he can possibly get. And the poor chap is suddenly afflicted with the most terrible memory lapses. He's already forgotten that he owes a duty to the electorate, or to the nation, and then it gets worse.
He forgets that he's paid off his mortgage, even though he has made sure to register with Land Registry that he now owns his country pile outright. The he forgets that his London property is being rented out to his pal, and charges for mortgage interest on that as well as trousering the rent.
Luckily it all comes flooding back to him when he is asked by journalists.
A miracle of modern science. Almost as convincing as Ernest Saunders recovery once released from prison.
