Our Man's heart's not really in this swearing thing. In fact he's got bored with it already. The problem with trying to shock you folk is Our Man's got to be pretty damned creative given that there's a whole lot more extreme stuff just a click away for those who like to get upset at being offended. A bigger problem for Our Man is that what's sassy, rebellious and fresh from the mouths of spotty blogo-youths comes off as sounding, well, pathetic from a middle aged ex-pat. So no more c-words on this blog. But Our Man reserves the right to call wankers wankers and pricks pricks.
Which reminds Our Man - J-politics. Sure, everyone reckons the LDP tapping up the former comedian Hideo Higashikokubaru to join the LDP front bench in Tokyo is a big joke, especially as he dissed the party and gave a counter offer of "I'll join your sodding party if you make me PM!" The joke was then on the LDP. But Our Man reckons (and when is his judgment faulty?) the LDP jokers really are thinking about it. And so they should.
He'd bloody well win.
