Is the return of political hilarity after a fairly flibbertigibbeterous summer.
Via Old Holborn, I learn that:
The tradition that parties do not put forward a candidate to stand against the Speaker is going to have a fascinating result in Buckinghamshire.
Nigel Farage of the UKIP party has stepped forward to fill the gap. He is standing against John Bercow in the next election.
Will the Tories be able to resist the temptation to wave good-bye to Bercow by voting UKIP, or will they just honourably restrain themselves from voting at all?
Watch this space.
The finest tradition of comic farce looms ahead.
Nothing much to add to that, but I’m getting popcorn in.

At least, since we know whoever we vote for, a politician gets in, we can have some fun watching.
Well, Farage has a tough task ahead.
I know the area – rural and lots of old money.
Still worth a punt, though.
I wonder what odds William Hill are offering?
I’m actually hoping that the Tories’ easy victory is swapped for a frenzied, greased-up goatfuck the likes of which they could scarcely imagine.
Always with the goat fucking, you….
There’s always room for goat fucking
