The Look Says it All

Scottish National Party Leader, Nicola Sturgeon and David Cameron were united along with the other   party leaders at VE Day ceremonies in London today only hours after the Conservatives won a clear majority and Ms Sturgeon promised to join forces with Ed Miliband to vehemently "lock Cameron out of Westminster." Labour suffered huge losses and Ed resigned. And now, Ms Sturgeon had to be present at a ceremony with the man she wanted out of Westminster. As Hannah Montana would say: "Um, awk-wurrrd." The last time I saw a look like that from a woman was when Sister Elizabeth caught me wearing blush in sixth grade and banished me to the bathroom to "wash that paint off your face, now!" But I left sixth grade in a few months and never had to have her as a teacher again.  No such luck for the PM, unfortunately. If I were you, sir, I'd keep a spare set of keys under the potted plant next to the door to the House. Just in case.
