Rogue animals

The best yet from UKIP’s Lord Pearson, who is forever trying to convince the House that the EU is a “corrupt octopus”:

Lord Pearson of Rannoch: … the UK’s rejection of the treaty might cause a genuine debate in Brussels, from which some genuine reform might emerge [but] I fear that this beast in Brussels is not that sort of animal. An octopus does not easily become a dolphin, but it might, just a little bit. [Hansard]
What with his claim last week that, “This particular frog leapt with such speed that I was caught on the wrong leg and was not able to move the amendment in time”, it seems the noble Lord’s entire political outlook is expressed through the medium of animals. Perhaps the room where he writes his speeches is covered in animal wallpaper.

Corrupt octopus
Oh dear. Someone has just shown me this. I'm afraid once I stopped sniggering at the quality special effects I thought of you this post.
