The Daily Teaser — 26-2-2013

Hmmm … 

You know, it has to be said, it sounds like the Liberal Democrats are in trouble, at the moment.

A senior member, Lord Rennard, has been accursed of various degrees of sexual harassment: with the added twist of various accusations of who knew what, when.

The story gets nastier: as it seems the police are now involved.

This could make the Eastleigh by-election go a bit pear-shaped … 

Let’s get moving on, shall we … ?


Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: along with being flattering about yesterday’s quotes and videos, she also managed to bag 6 out of 6.

And this quote from Yves Sant Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent.
And as a final thing … ?   I’ll ALSO leave you with THIS old Levi’s ad: Shaggy really owes  Levi a BIG thank you … !

*        Gee, thanks, Debbi … !   (I’ll be honest, though, yesterday was nice and easy to put together: it literally rolled off the keyboard.   The real stunners — from where I’m sitting — are some of the regular ones.   I tend to try not to repeat a question, so it means taking some REAL turns, putting something together … !)   Oh, by the way … ?   I meant to try and tweet this past you …
