brown election latest rumours
I should really be writing about something else today, but I can't help noticing that even the Scottish singing lady has been overshadowed by the Scottish talking man.
I see his current line is that we need to avoid chaos and keep the show on the road.
I may have a different view of chaos, so I suppose the small number of items I list below (last few weeks only), next to our illustrious leader (old photo, I'm afraid) officially do not constitute chaos.
economy deep in recession
lawmakers' expense claims
tax money to pay MP accountants
individual Lords suspended
Royalty not invited to D-Day event
Cabinet resignations (Blears, Smith) before euro elections
Lords dosh for law change
bumper pensions for errant bankers
full salary and pension rights for ‘mistaken’ MPs
flipping houses to maximise expense claims
lowest trust index ever for MPs
secret firstname.lastname@example.org plot to oust
meltdown(Telegraph), disarray(Independent), carnage(FT)
Feel free to reshuffle the deckchairs at will.
