    The lay-out is crap, but there is a recognisable political comment which in the hands of a good cartoonist would make an acceptable statement as to the state of English politics today.

      Cuckoo laying eggs in oher birds nests, quite decorative bird, for some reason their numbers have decreased and no one knows why.
      Do do the largest pigeon which has been extinct for about 2 centuries only known nowadays by its bones and the odd stuffed one and old drawings
      Dead parrot used to be a rare picturesque guady bird but is extinct as an entity, played a part in Monty Pythons DeadParrot Sketch
      The Christmas Turkey a large over fed bird, struts about the poultry shed, not particularly bright has no idea what is to come, which does not stop him strutting around

      Why am I not in the frame?
      My leader’s speech in front of the comrades this morning stated what I would do IF I was chancellor (no chance says Vince(able))
      The great people of Britain, especially my friends in the north, should note that I will never apologise for ruining the country with my friend McDoom; and I will still carry on spending public money that we do not have.
      150,000 houses to be built on debt based on G4 forecasts – drop in the ocean.
      Wave the Red Flag and Caroline Quinn of BBC is my best mate.

      An article on the sports page of my newspaper today has a panel showing that the biggest “divers” in the BPL are those from Liverpool FC. Led by Lewy Sorlegs or whatever his name is.

      Whoda thunk it?

    From ‘Seen Elsewhere’ – ‘Gordon and the African Coup’

    How the Imbecility went unchallenged…

    The Treasury under GB was almost immune to unplanned leaks and rogue quotes, a remarkable record sustained over 10 years. That was in part due to our policy that unless a quote came from X, Y or Z, then we’d simply deny that it represented the Treasury view, where X was the Head of Communications (successively Peter Curwen, John Kingman, Michael Ellam, me, Paul Kissack and Chris Martin), Y was the Media Special Adviser (successively Charlie Whelan, Ian Austin and me), and Z was Gordon himself or either of the two Eds.

    It was also due – and I take full credit/responsibility for this – to my Admiral Byng approach to leaks. If anything did appear in the papers that was not from X, Y or Z, I would instantly name a culprit. I’d try and choose someone who was a decent suspect, but their guilt didn’t really matter – it was the assertion of their guilt that mattered. They would be cut out of meetings, removed from the circulation list for emails, and wherever they walked in the Treasury, people would mutter about their demise. The effect of this was to make the actual guilty party feel guilty as hell, and put the fear of God into everyone else in the Treasury about doing any leaking themselves. As for the poor Admiral Byngs, they’d usually recover after a while, and some of them were probably guilty anyway.

    Stalinesque.

    A reign of terror at the heart of the Imbecility.

    I have to say that that Michael Grove is not my cup of tea but I like his ideas about making all schools ” free schools ” under private control .

    Anything which takes this massive expenditure off the backs of the taxpayer surely has to be a good thing.

    edmilitwit always reminds me of a brainless pigeon.

    I see his theme for this year’s conference is to openly promote himself as a geek. He thinks this will make us like him more!

    He’s also apparently going to try and promote the idea that he is an ordinary working class man – how he works that one out, when he came from a middle class academic family, is as out of touch with ordinary people as cameron is and has never done a real days work in his life, is beyond me.

    Then talking on the radio yesterday he said ‘ I want every child to know they can have a career like mine’ . Let’s just hope most kids go off any do something more productive!
