And Then I Gave It Some Thought….

Remember that EU meeting? Seen the news? Read the papers? How many times have the words 'veto' and 'treaty' been aired?

This got me thinking, and two things became obvious, even to me wot's dummer un a stick; one being that it's doubtful young Davy 'no pals' would know what 'veto' means, the other is, what treaty? No, really, what treaty? There must be one 'couse the lad said there was and, as young as he is, he's in charge of the Country so obviously wouldn’t lie to us, right?

But not a body belonging to the MSM has bothered to ask about this mysterious treaty. One simple question boys, "Er, sorry, veto the treaty? What treaty's that then?"

Anyhoo, armed with these two bits of information I pondered what could lie behind the code words 'veto' and 'treaty'.

Then it hit me like a bolt out of the blue. The whole mass of politicians and reporter type people, and similar, only heard what they wanted to hear, not what was actually said. By the time it dawned on Dave that he'd been miss-reported he was too far down the road of no return. No problem. Early impressions were that he was a cool dude again.

Think about the boy; veto - not understood; treaty - non-existent; But wait, what season is it? Festive. What happens during the festive season? Parties an' such. Forget politics and concentrate on the festive season and the excitement this generates in lads of Davy's age and we can come to a confident conclusion regarding the coded content of 'veto' and 'treaty'.

What they thought they heard; “I'm going to have to veto the treaty and I have the backing of my party."
What he actually excitedly spluttered; "
I'm going to have Vimto with the turkey when I get back and have my party.”

See? Now it all comes together and starts to make sense. Politics? Nah. Festive excitement? In spades. Bless him.

He's kind o' stuck now as, after everyone, everywhere, un-questioningly, miss-understood him, he's now trying to decide which is the cooler comment to fess up to.

Quote; Johney.

A bus-load of politicians were driving down a country road when the bus ran off the road and crashed into a tree in an old farmer’s field. The old farmer, after seeing what had happened, went over to investigate. He then proceeded to dig a hole to bury the politicians.
A few days later the local sheriff came out looking for the bus. Seeing it wrecked in the farmers field he asked the old farmer where all the politicians had gone. The old farmer said he'd buried them. The sheriff asked the old farmer, “Were they all dead?” The old farmer replied, “Well, some of them said they weren’t, but you know how them politicians lie.”
