Who should be burned as an effigy on your bonfire tonight? Kate McCann? President Assad or Obama? Polly Toynbee?

As we start to discover the latest damning revelations about sleazy MPs and their expense fiddles it seems harsh to burn an effigy of poor old Guy Fawkes tonight. He was the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions. So whose effigy should it be?

Judging by the comments on my latest article on the McCann parents about half the population think that an effigy of Kate McCann should be burned. About the other half seem to believe that anyone who dares say a word about the sainted McCann’s should be burned. Forget effigies they should actually be burned.

Which is the bigger war criminal? President Assad or President Obama or for that matter Tony Blair? What about en effigy of Polly Toynbee – the old witch has been poisoning the body politic with her muddle headed thoughts for years, she has to be a contender.

Me? I am just too much of a nice guy. I am more worried about how the cats will react to the fireworks than whose effigy should be burned. But there are many folks more deserving of the effigy treatment than poor old Guy Fawkes.

Oh, ok...you push me. For her unique contriubution to driving through insane human rights legislation, for her vile condoning of Hamas, for supporting her war criminal of a husband, for being a filthy freeloader and for being wrong on every great issue and sanctimoniuous with it, for her sheer avarice ...I'd burn an effigy of the Wicked Witch herself, Ms Cherie Blair.
