        Perhaps the other Gordon Brown can be persuaded by his Fife constituents to accept the Steward and Bailiff’s job for the Manor of Northstead; it’ll be less of a commute.

        However, his spokesman says “He is just getting on with the job (of trying to be as rich as Mandy and Tony)”

      Politicians have really fu-ked the WORLD. Only a matter of time now for the whole Global crash. Shame when things where looking so good until the Knacker Political class thought it great to spend all the money on Terror, then fixing it. What was it Bliar said as he invaded IRAQ “Make the world a safer Place” or some other Putrid Lie. Lets Threaten another invasion of IRAN. Higher Gas price larger Taxes Finishing off the Real Economy. And by the way when are they bringing those Cancer causing Scanners to the UK??

      The reports of my early demise are premature

      I am pleased that my heir apparent Chuck Yer Money Away is boasting that Labour will give every young person a job (Chinese funny money)

      and that the MiliManifesto promises that

      London will be paved in gold
      Pigs will sprout wings
      Ken Livingstone will become likeable
      No one will ever die again
      Every day will be sunny
      I will once again rule this country
      Scots will reject future subsidies
      Lord Lardarse will one day talk sense

      Any other Manifestations will be welcome

            Can you explain to me the obsession with piano wire? It does get mentioned rather frequently. I ask because the piano strings I have seen are rather fine (except the multiple bass “wires”) and I presume the effect of using them as a hanging rope would resemble the effect of a cheese board wire on a lump of cheese.

            I am a great fan of Gordon Brown, he attended a Portsmouth Businessman of the year dinner in Portsmouth for one of my ‘boys,’ when he was Chancellor and Fred Goodwin came along with him. Fred provided the loans for my ‘boys’ to do all the development for the asylum seekers we take in. By the way, I am still doing my best for the UK, evidenced here:

        A certain type of politician (most of them) simply won’t resign. Think of the Larry Craig episode in the US. The police were trolling for homosexuals at an airport washroom with a bad reputation. Larry Craig, congressman for Idaho gets caught. He just denies it…the infamous “I have a wide stance” becomes a national joke.

        Politicians are shameless, they can not be embarrassed. He finally did resign, but made out like he was the aggrieved party.
