I like it!

In a comment on a Guardian CiF piece, 'Fairness is still our guide', allegedly written by our Dear Prime Minister, smellthecoffee observes:


"Labour began with Keir Hardie and ended up with Laurel and Hardie."

Zola will not be surprised to learn that my Conservative grandfather used to refer to Keir Hardie as "that scamp".

After a decade of The Importance of Being Tony we are now witnessing The Futility of Being Gordon.

I wager the solutions to the crisis had been already planned before it all started, so neither Brown nor any other statesperson will be giving them out of their own initiative.

The problem statespersons have is how to explain the measures to the population in a credible manner.

Fuck me you lot.
The Chartist movement still awaits some kind of "progress".
We all still await the return of history.

Nice on Jose : how can we move from the particular case into the general and then to make the generalisation believable to the particular folk that should be informed?
Might we try football or Amazing Race?

Jose said...

Perhaps soccer will do, Zola, after all it's always been the great solution for all governments' problems. LOL.

Ah, jolly lovely old Sport. Too right, THAT'LL keep the fookin' boogers off Gord-O, all standing about in the terraces and mining their snouts with their wee pinkies and examining the contents, eh?

Well, 'that scamp Brown' certainly got a right beasting - and deservedly so.

The only good thing about it all -- and this is selfish -- is seeing that your politicians in the UK are no better than ours in America.

Well YD and all :-
I do not represent "my" politicians and certainly not any "your" or "our" politicians.
I have work to do on the street.

Would the NEW Keir Hardie, from Iceland, be called a "scamp" too?
