‘Do I cut the red wire, or the blue wire? Or do I cut both?’ By Theresa May
HELLO there. Two years ago I made this bomb.
Since then, however, I’ve forgotten which wire I’m supposed to cut to stop it from exploding. Do join me while I work it out.
So, this digital clock says 90 seconds. Now it’s 89 seconds. 88… 87… It would appear to be some sort of countdown.
Do you ever watch Countdown? It’s really good. Though not as good as when Richard Whiteley presented it. And Carol Vorderman. That was proper Countdown. I was quite good at the letters round. I actually got a nine once. ‘Vibrating’. I was rubbish at the numbers round though. Carol Vorderman is a witch.

That’s why people voted to leave. Because of the bananas. The EU doesn’t like them to be too bendy. Or is it too straight? 26… 25… 24…
17… 16… 15… ‘Fifteen minutes with you, well I wouldn’t say no.’ I do like Morrissey. I like his robust views and his quintessential Englishness.
12… I was 12 when I ran through a field of wheat. Not a care in the world, until I realised I was committing an outrageously selfish act of vandalism.
8… 7… 6… I like this clock. It’s very steady.
Anyway, back to the matter in hand. Blue, red or bo…
