Lofty ambitions could be undone by clerical error There has been much interest following last week’s launch of the No More Talking About Bendy Buses Party. In fact, a candidate in the forthcoming byelection in Douglas West has already inquired after the intentions of the NMTABB Party and whether we shall be fielding a candidate ourselves.

it was in the loft for years before we got the loft ladder installed, I wonder how the previous owner of that step ladder actually got down from the roof space. (A cursory check concluded they weren’t still there.)

Of course, he could have been fishing for an endorsement, but I suspect not.

While looking for something else, I discovered my old exam certificates. These were from the last year of O-levels, those exams that were deemed outdated and unfair up until recently when the UK education secretary Michael Gove decided he wanted to resurrect them like a malevolent vampire ready to feast on new victims.

The truth is, we have yet to decide whether we should put forward a candidate in Douglas West. Part of the problem is that Douglas West includes a number of high profile bus routes, which could mean the main article of constitution would be difficult to abide by. Besides, there is an awful lot more organising to be done in my loft at the moment – running an election campaign would get in the way of that. Speaking of lofts, it’s amazing what you find when you go in them, aside from evidence to suggest that the intimidatingly large arachnids that occasionally appear down below are, in fact, just the babies of much larger beasts lurking above. (Confirmation of this comes from a news article about the shed skin of a Chilean Rose Tarantula in the boards of a house in Wales.) Aside from that, however, I’ve lived in this house for the best part of the decade and have just discovered that we have another step ladder. As

Fortunately someone broke out the garlic and the exam reform was deemed a step too far, But what now seems rather quaint is that my exam certificates were produced using a manual typewriter. Now that must have been a fun job for someone at the exam board. Considering there was a clerical error on my maths exam that was only corrected after a protest, it was a relief to see that liquid paper was not used on the certificate. It wouldn’t look good for an election candidate… Follow Paul on Twitter: @Norbertsdad
