Labour Offers Reel Change

Labour Offers Reel Change

David ?Thunderbirds puppet? Milliband was the star guest on Andrew Marr?s political magazine on television this morning. Milliband, The Foreign Secretary (allegedly) in Gordon Brown?s dying government was trying to fend off question from Voice Of The Mysterons Marr about the persistent rumours that a strong undercurrent of opinion in the Labour party would like to see Gordon Brown replaced as leader before the election.

When the subject of the recent plot led by Blairite loyalists Jaqui Smith and Geoff Hoon was raised Milliband denied there had been such a plot and the Labour Party does not go in for plotting, which only proves he doesn?t read the papers. He then said Labour?s job was to govern competently (stop sniggering at the back) until the election and then win a fourth term in office by offering the voters reel change.

Can we assume this means Labour plan to govern by showing us 1930s feature ? length movies and perhaps hiring Jools Holland to play Honky Tonk piano while the reel changing is going on.

Or does he mean changes that will make us reel?

As the nation is already reeling from 12 years of Labour?s style of governing by trying to micromanage the minutiae of individual lives perhaps we should all keep working for a hung parliament.

We like to say “More humour every day at Boggart Blog” but all the news has been so gloomy it is getting hard to live up to that… 😦

Gordon Brown Loses His Vegetables

January 16, 2010

As if he did not have enough on his plate at the moment, poor old Gordon is facing another probmem, this time with vegetables.

No one person should have more problems to deal with on top of climate change, Afghanistan, the credit crunch, unemployment, Charles Clarke’s ears, Public Sector Borrowing, plotters and conspirators within his party, social breakdown, the decline of western civilisation and the price of fish. Unfortunately the Prime Minister was presented with yet another potential catastrophe this week.

The Government are faced with a crisis among the vegetable community. How can the ministers ensure vegetables survive the winter should there be any more bad weather?

In a normal year it would be a trivial matter delegated to civil servants but in this election year vegetables have taken on a new importance. Who else will vote Labour come the election in May?
