Dave Takes Up Brown’s Legacy

Dave arrives in Indonesia and moments later:

“A tsunami watch was issued for countries across the Indian Ocean today after a large earthquake hit waters off Indonesia, sending residents pouring from their homes in panic. The US Geological Survey said the 8.7-magnitude quake was centred 20 miles beneath the ocean floor around 269 miles from Aceh’s provincial capital.”

Can anyone remember another Prime Minister this sort of thing used to happen? Surely not…

      They’re both Scottish.

      And Cameron promised to match Brown’s ruinous spending plans. Both wanted/want to snoop on our phone calls and emails and web browsing. Both want to bury England under a sea of concrete, and to make us pay for it. And now disaster follows in Cameron’s wake, just like it did with Brown..

      Maybe they’re brothers, separated at birth.

    ironic that dave is going to myanmar to extoll the virtues of democracy. yet back here: snooping laws, taxing grannies, extended holidays for MPs, tax-payer funded lunches for MPs – paid for by increasing taxes on our lunches, too many MPs, too many councils, amongst highest taxes in the western world and we’re in the biggest mess in the western world…..good old dim dave

          That’s what Cameron thought when he saw the tsunami of debt that Brown left behind. “Ooh, that’s bad, I won’t mess with that.”

          And so it came to pass that Cameron avoided doing anything about the debt tsunami, and indeed added to it by borrowing even more money and giving it away to India. So they could buy French warplanes.

    Apparently it’s one of the top-10 biggest quakes ever recorded. Only there’s no tsuanami reported for now. It could be our Dave’s aura is calming the waters, bringing peace and tranquillity to a troubled corner of the world, or at least providing valuable time for the locals to seek refuge.
