those code words
the Silly Boys have posted about their Annual Meeting, at which there is sometimes a show trial, and always a stitch-up. The officers of Reading Labour Party were elected unanimously (not just unopposed), and the meeting was described by the Boys as "busy and lively". "Busy" is code for "packed" (in the technical sense, people were brought along to ensure sufficient numbers in case of a contested vote), and "lively" is code for - well, it should be obvious, for a blazing row and/or someone being physically ejected and/or physically attacked, all of which I have witnessed at previous such meetings. What fun they do have. Pity it is all pointless and meaningless, and has been since Labour lost control of the council in 2008. Bye bye.
