WEEK IS A LONG TIME IN POLITICS, TWENTY YEARS NOT SO: We did cringe a little ourselves when the usually reliable Guardian Diary - well, okay, the sometimes reliable Guardian Diary - didn't realise that Tom Watson MP's yoofspeak website was a pisstake. C'mon, nobody's that square*. But we were amused that Tom told his local paper that his inspiration was events "in recent years" like Neil Kinnock appearing in a Tracy Ullman video.
For readers under the age of thirty: Neil Kinnock was once the leader of the Labour Party. Tracy Ullman is now best remembered through mentions in '300 episodes of the Simpsons' pieces.
