Held Breath

I have a strong sense of held breath. Labour has collapsed in Europe, Brown looks terrible, Mandelson is in charge.... and, er, what next? I can't read any more Brown-must-go, the next 24-hours-are-critical, cabinet-of-cowards pieces. Maggie Pagano does the right thing and demands an explanation for Alan Sugar, but, other than that, it's all been said dozens of times. Something needs to happen, something that even the high arts of Mandy can't conceal. But what?

    Part of Lord Manhandle's (my spellchecker wants to call him that) price for saving Broon's skin last week was Sugar being elevated to the Lords. It was clear yesterday morning on Marr that Sugar didn't have a clue what he would do about 'small to medium sized businesses' - or any interest in them.
    I want to know why Mandleson has extracted a peerage from Broon for Sugar at this time. What does he owe him?

  2. They are connected Bryan. MPs engaged in furtive financial dealings in Westminster could not see what was wrong with bankers engaged in furtive financial dealings in the City. Only connect.
    PS If your prediction that Brown will be gone by June comes good, will you start tipping lottery numbers every Friday so that Brit and I can finally receive our just rewards?

  3. And Nige too of course. I know money won't buy him happiness but at least it will allow him to be miserable in greater comfort

  4. No Bryan you will have to do it yourself, you need to get back to the army surplus in Norwich and ask "if they have anything special in the back?"

    You will be a national hero and I am sure if you tell the judge you like the rest of the nation could not stand any more, you are sure to be out in 4 to 7 years, maybe less?

    I am sure they will let you continue your blog on the inside, they have PlayStations and everything these days!

    Jeff managed to survive his stretch, I am sure you can.

    Good luck we are all proud of you.

  6. "But what?" You are my last hope for someone who can tell us, Bryan. I'm thinking of emigrating to New Zealand but I gather the chiropracters are quite fierce over there.

  7. Could relieve boredom by calling Gordon GoBro, as in SuBo, J-Lo etc. Works if you're pro or anti, and is cool, but wasn't my idea.
