Paws for Thought
  • The Diary of a Guide Dog called
  • Lucy

About Me
  • My name is Lucy.
  • I work for his nibs David Blunkett MP.
  • He hasnt a cat in hells chance of getting
  • anywhere without ME!

A Guide Dog for the Blind
  • Without me hed plough head first into
  • a pile of smelly stuff…
  • ….Come to think about,
  • he does that anyway!
  • I am what they call a guide dog for the
  • blind not my choice of words, I assure
  • you…

  • A more suitable title might be
  • Guide dog for a slippery snake
  • Guide dog for a dumb arse politico
  • Guide dog for a repetitive disaster maker
  • Guide dog for a Minister of Silly Walks
  • Guide dog for someone beyond help

Why Write A Diary?
  • Better than listening to Parliamentary gob shite
    all day long
  • Theres a limit to putting up with having to keep
    looking up his nibs trouser leg
  • And if he can do it…
  • …Besides, have you read his load of bollocks?

Who does he think he is?
  • As Ive already suggested, Im the leader he
    just follows my lead.
  • They all crap on about how wonderful he is how
    hes overcome blindness, etc.
  • Excuse me, whats been my role here?
  • Who made the Civil Service jump?
  • Sorted out his Access to Work?
  • Oh, and fked up the Nannys travel permit?

And another thing…
  • Who ensured maximum media coverage
  • EACH TIME he put his foot …
  • …and that other thingy he has…
  • …in it?
  • Look at this?

David Blunkett News Articles from around the
world focusing on David Blunkett.
  • The mass media love stories about
  • Triumph over Tragedy
  • or
  • High flyers who end
  • tits up!
  • Yes, the media just adore, David!

  • Thats enough about his nibs…
  • …My diary

Part of the job being a poser
Extracts from My Diary
  • August 2001
  • Im dragged to another bloody dinner party by his
    nibs. Hate standing round, nose at crotch level,
    with a bunch of pretentious snobs. As time goes
    by and the alcohol flows, in more senses than
    one, its not a pleasant experience.
  • Talking about bitches nosing around and crotches
    his nibs got friendly with some media type
    called, Kimberley Quinn. I felt a right

  • So, tell me, what could SHE do for him,
  • that I couldnt?

Extracts from My Diary
  • Tuesday October 17th 2006
  • David Blunkett's dogs dinner of a diary
  • Cheeky bastards!
  • My dinners arent crap, I have you know!

Extracts from My Diary
  • Wednesday October 11th 2006
  • His nibs relationship with the PM is
  • going to be the death of me. First of all,
  • we have Cabinet meetings God, theyre
  • so boring!
  • …At least I dont feel out of place there
  • licking my private parts in public.

  • Then theres the PMs gift…
  • …the second coming!
  • After dropping a bollock and having to clear his
    desk …neither of them learnt any lessons…
  • Heres another post for you, David.
  • Itll be good therapy…
  • Oh, yeah? Home Secretary therapeutic?

  • And, finally, why go along with all the PMs
  • half baked ideas?
  • Ill lead you, he says. Kept saying, we need
  • to go down the 3rd way.
  • What kind of instruction is that?
  • Took me awhile, but I cottoned on that it
  • meant, keep turning right.
  • Then theres that other time I let the PM lead
  • arm in arm they strolled off, and before I knew
  • we were in Iraq!

People I have known…
  • Mixed with all sorts from Kings and Queens,
  • (plenty of queens, but dont tell his nibs),
  • through to prisoners he was quite willing to
  • see shot if they got out of hand.
  • Maybe its because I work with his nibs, but I
    have a thing about people who are, well
  • Up themselves…

Stand up
  • Now, take that Jimmy Carr.
  • Hes far too deep for my liking…
  • (Think about it)
  • He went to Cambridge…so he thinks hes a
  • Clever dick.
  • I think hes 50 accurate there!

Heres a tasteless piece of his own medicine
  • They say he has a deadpan face…
  • …Deadpan?
  • Bedpan, more like!
  • Whats the difference between Jimmys face
  • and a baboons arse?
  • Never been tempted to put my
  • fist in a Baboons arse…

  • Carr tells a lot of jokes about his girlfriend.
  • Does she need a guide dog I could fit her up…
  • However lots of men claim to have a girl friend
    because they dont want to feel left out
  • What if girl friend is a code phrase for
  • quite different?
  • You dont mean…

A Whole New Meaning
  • I got arrested for being seen out in public with
    my girlfriend
  • How would I describe by girlfriend?
  • Rather small, fat and wears a polo neck
  • No, Im not going to flash my girlfriend
  • up on the screen for you…

Thats All Folks!
  • If anyone was upset, shocked, disgusted, offended
  • traumatised
  • by this performance…
  • ...please seek professional help!
