Kitty litter

GNU LABOUR

NoseMonkey, Unity and Justin are rightly indignant about Kitty Ussher (where did that extra 's' come from?), MP for Burnley, whose idiotic remarks about the Labour rebels are breathtakingly arrogant:
I very much hope that we will never have another terrorist atrocity in Britain. But if we do, and if it happens because the police have not had sufficient time to accumulate enough evidence to charge the perpetrators, then the Tories, the Lib Dems and our own rebels will have blood on their hands.

Er, no, Kitty, the perpetrators will have blood on their hands, no one else (except the victims, as Rachel points out in NoseMonkey's comments).

(Unity helpfully points out that 'Kitty' is Victorian slang for 'lesbian', which means I can now justifiably use the word 'lesbian' in a post again, and increase my hit rate...)

Oscar:

I must admit I have no idea at all whether 'kitty' is slang for anything, victorian or otherwide.

'Tis just my warped sense of humour which decided that 'Kitty Ussher' sounded as though it could be music hall slang in much the same way that Ian Fleming called a character 'Pussy Galore'.

Still, you did get to put 'lesbian' in a post so all's not lost.
