Move Over Darling?


One is a picture of Cliff's Heathcliff album, the other is of course our Chancellor. Recently our beloved PM compared himself with Heathcliff and you see where this is going.... the picture is taken from the interview with Darling in the Guardian and it's difficult not to draw an analogy.

With the Chancellor's rush to try and pour some cold water on the Guardian story it's hard not to think that things for AD might well be as doomed as they were for Heathcliff.

I dunno, where's Cathy when you need her.

Interestingly Darling's P.A. is called Catherine....

Missed that...Broon compared himself to Heathcliffe? Jings! From the sub-functional to the mega-melodramatic.

Sounds like they're all setting up the excuses [sniff, sniff, woe is me] for our sympathy when the inevitable lynching party goes after them!

Richard, that was me asking about Cathy's whereabouts.

Richard Havers said...

Bush, Cheney, um, um, Rice, um, Pelosi, um...

I wouldn't feel too bad, Mr Morris - that's the extent of my knowledge about the US administration! (and I'm not even sure about Pelosi...;-)
