Such a prescient, beautiful sentiment.

U Turn If You Want To?

Battle Lines.

Cheek by Jowl!

Sunday, the 3rd of January, 2010.

Declaring that Labour would fight "every inch of the way" for victory, Brown returned to a strategy of insisting that cutting public spending was not necessarily the way to tackle the deficit. Once again attempting to cast Labour as the party of investment versus Conservative cuts.

The children's secretary, Ed Balls - the fiercest proponent of the government's Labour investment versus Tory cuts strategy - was equally defiant.

Saturday, 6 days later,

Alistair Darling has warned that Britain faces its toughest spending cuts for 20 years if Labour continues in office.

Tune from the film, "Oh what a lovely war"!

When this lovely war is over,
Oh, so happy we will be

Darling lost forever,
Mandy out in misery.

Blinky bashed by many doubters,
Gone with lovely Jimmy Brown,
Labour cut and split asunder,
Like pine logs, lying on the ground.

When this Gummint Fighting closes,
Oh how happy we will be
Perhaps a new dawn will be dawning
And lefties put across our knee.

With their ferret like a fighting,
With their useless, sick parsee,
We will see them really flounder,
For the good of our Country.

Gromit and his Banana,
No longer rule the world,
Nation unto nation,
Rejoice that these young girls,
Will no longer have to haunt them,
With childish, tantrum, little twirls.

When this lovely war is over,
And Jimmy tucked up in his bed,
His tears and awful tantrums,
No more will we all dread,

The Jonah and his danger,
So dreadful and so mad,
Will go back up to Scotland,
Knowing we've all been truly had.


  1. It's unravelling even further now OR with Hoon coming clean about Brown's behaviour as chancellor and refusing to fund helicopters for Iraq.

  2. I don't suppose I'm the only one to think that Brown looks as though he's about to rip off his mask, am I?

  3. Goodnight Vienna - I suspect there is no mask - what you see is sadly what you get.

  4. Sir, this is an insult to Gromit, a capable dog deserving of our respect. Surely Wiley E. Fox would be more appropriate, even if it doesn't rhyme. Apart from that, nice one.

  5. Clarinda - I thought he was supposed to be a lizard ;-)
