Bollocks to this, I’m off to Ukraine.

Why? Well, my reasons are two-fold. First, you need to be in Kiev if you want to go on a day trip to Chernobyl, which is how I’m spending Easter Sunday.

Secondly, have you seen their Prime-minister? Who wouldn’t want to visit a country with Yulia Tymoshenko in charge? I mean… compare and contrast.

Hardly separated at birth, are they? I know who I’d rather be governed by.


  1. I like the way you can download wallpaper for your computer showing her astride a big bike whilst wearing leathers. I can’t see Gordon doing that. Or Cameron.

    Anne Widdecombe, on the other hand…

  2. I like the one where she’s spraying graffiti on a wall (but the motorbike one is more raunchy).

  3. Bloody hell. So it’s not just France topping our lady politicians in the good looking stakes.

    Ukraine have a woman who would look more at home gracing the centrefold of Yodel Weekly and we have a ropey selection, including Tessa Jowell and Jacqui Smith.


  4. Yulia Tymoshenko FOR THE WIN!
    I loved that pic. Just like Leia…

    In any case, I’ve heard very nice things about the “Chernobyl ride” and I look forward to reading your report. Might be something I’d consider to do this summer.

  5. She has a daughter, you know.

    “A hub a hub a hub a hub hub”

    That is all.
