Uber Whatever
Posted Tuesday, 9 October 2007 at 11:32

George Osborne is becoming a bit of a trend setter.


The words ‘bottler’ had only just fallen from his lips and just about everyone was wearing one. The papers were full of photographs of otherwise fashion conscious people dressed in Gordon Brown bottles, inspired by George.


A few weeks ago he described certain members of the Conservative party as ‘uber modernisers’ and now everyone is over using the phrase. It’s uber this and uber that. Even Helen Mirren (yes, I am a fan) used it on Top Gear the other night.


Uber has become the new whatever.


Now, George could be onto something here.


I am sure, however, that today he will have other things on his mind as he takes on Alistair Darling and Gordon Brown over the comprehensive spending review – but if George wants to pop the phrase ‘blonde female Conservative MPs look good in Prada’ into his speech, I will be off like a shot.

Ah Nadine, Now you've rasied the fashion issue, what label was that sexy red dress you were wearing last Sunday week in the No. 10 bar at Blackpool?? Gazed at you for at least an hour whilst pretending to watch the rugby!!! ST

That title was bestowed on you months ago by your regulars and used by Sky reporter shortly after your conference when you were interviewed alongside Ian Dale, amongst others. You know, before you threw up!!! I suppose I could be called a b****y nuisance!!

You never fail to impress me, Nadine, and today is no exception. I refer to your request for the Chief Constable to resign. I wholeheartedly support you.A few months ago, having witnessed a group of drunken youths on the main railway line that runs through a town in your constituency,I did a 999. Bearing in mind that these idiots could have been struck by a train at any moment, the police response was to knock on my door THREE days later. So I admire your spirit, but check your car tax is upto date....

Oh flip, I'm sorry Ian, I thought you were Iain Dale!!! Blog Queen is fine, although it is a title which belongs wholly to Iain. That's the other Iain, not you. Thank you John. This is a very serious issue and the subject of my blog which I will post in the morning.

Well done. You were on TV tonight and the radio and you are spot on. If you were a rubbish we would vote you out. She has to go.

Nadine, you are of course the 'uber-blogger'. (It looks better with the German umlaut of course but most UK keyboards don't have them?)

It's OK , Nadine, I enjoyed the momentary attention! I'll change my name to avoid confusion in future.

Ha. I know exactly where the 'uber' thing has come from. Blame Mr Osborne's Special Adviser (my former boss) for influencing his vocabulary. If he adopts anything else from him, expect the phrase 'as such' to pop up with fair regularity too.

You looked smashing today at PMQT in your pink jacket! Assume it was not from PRADA.
