Plus 1 and dry when driving in. Feels colder!

Ciaran Gethings and David Bass were in to ride out

Ed Hawkings and Barry Harding were here third lot to see their Kylenoe Dancer.

We have one runner today at Doncaster.. Jack Hope in the bumper. For my thoughts please click here.

While stitching a cut on the hand of a local 75 year old farmer previously caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation.

Eventually the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.

The old farmer said, “Well, as I see it, most politicians are “POST TORTOISES.”

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him his meaning.

The old farmer said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a tortoise balanced on top you that’s a post tortoise.

“You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb arse put him up there to begin with.”

Is this the best explanation of a Politician you have ever heard?

You probably would not get away with this nowadays!
