    It's funny until you note the part about him being blind and defending his guide-dog. :eek: That took the humour right away, replaced by guilt for my knee-jerk reaction to being automatically amused by MP misfortune.

    A cow? That's the weirdest thing I've ever heard... it is funny, but only to the extent that you don't have sympathy for the poor guy.

    I didn't realize that cows charged at people, but I guess I would too if my nipples were always being fondled.

    Agreed, it would be funny except it's David Blunkett, I don't like the guy but being blind not funny.

    Cows will attack dogs (and humans who may get in the way) especially when with calves.

    For me, Blunkett's being blind has very little bearing on the story's hilarity. The very idea of being attacked by a cow while you're walking your dog is in itself wonderfully amusing.

    Me and a few friends were chased by a herd of cows once. There were no calves and we didn't threaten them, it was just late and we were flying a power kite and they decided they didn't want us in their field.

    And I had a brainfart and thought Blunkett was Darling for soem reason :eek: then I laughed.
