Do you think I'm thinking...

By Guto Harri
Political correspondent

POSTED: Friday 6 May, 0010BST

Scarves ready
Michael Howard's battlebus - no, not the one that was taken off the road because of an out-of-date tax disc - has a bright future ahead of it.

This weekend it will be stripped of all its blue coating and slogans and refitted for its next task, beginning Monday.

It's becoming Rod Stewart's tour bus. Write your own jokes.

The first cut is the deepest?

Stripped of the Conservative blue livery and emptied of the handbags and gladrags of the previous guests, the bus said "Do ya think I'm sexy? Tonight I'm yours." "Stay with me," replied Rod, "Blondes have more fun."
R Davies, Cardiff, UK

Rod Stewart and Martin Quittenton wrote the song "Maggie May": 'Oh, Maggie I couldn't have tried any more.' or 'The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age But that don't worry me none in my eyes you're everything' or perhaps 'Oh Maggie I wish I'd never seen your face, you made a first-class fool out of me.'
David Petherick, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

I feel that after tonight Michael Howard may as well go and make his living playing pool. Cause his shallow, negative campaign will be seen through by far too many.
Peter Clark, Langley Mill, UK

Rod Stewart has already made his comeback; he doesn't need to worry about what bus he uses. Given the lack of modernisation of the Conservative Party (good name) maybe they should select for transport, next time, something leftover from the London-Brighton rally?
David Naylor, Mexico City, Mexico

Hmmm! Wake up Maggie I think I've got something to say to you.
David McElroy, Dumbarton
