Better Step Aside

"See me comin' better step aside
A lot of men didn't and a lot of men died
I got one fist of iron and the other of steel
And if the right one don't get ya, the left one will"

Sir Malcolm must have been listening to Tennessee Ernie Ford's Greatest Hits. We can think of no other explanation for his crazed assertion in tomorrow's GMTV interview that Ken should step aside for him.

Admittedly, it sounds as if Big Ken's sidekick Wild Tim Yeo deliberately wound him up:

"I think Malcolm will pull out because of his limited parliamentary support. I would hope he would back Ken Clarke."

Mad Malc's mean snake eyes narrowed, as he swept back his beaverskin poncho to reveal the gleaming pearl handles of those notorious Pacemakers....sorry, Peacemakers. " just insulted my mule," he croaked in a most intimidating fashion. "An' my mule don't like to be insulted."



Come back next week for the next exciting episode of The Last Chance Saloon.

PS The latest odds on Betfair have Ken on 3/1 (implied probability of 25%), and Mad Malc on 64/1 (implied probability of 1.5%). So the man Malc wants to stand aside, according to the punters, has an almost twenty times greater chance of winning!

For reference, DD's odds have shortened again to 0.64/1 (implied probability of 61%). Whereas poor David C has gone right out to 13.5/1 (an implied probability of only 7%, against his pre-Ken highpoint of well over 20%).
