Alistair Darling. What can you say about such a man? I think I should quote from the final scene of Sean O'Casey's Juno and the Paycock:
Joxer: It's a darlin' story, a daarlin' story!
Boyle: I'm telling you … Joxer … th' whole worl's ... in a terr … ible state o' … chassis!
I have been speaking to award-winning financial psychic Keith Busby about the chancellor, and he told me, 'I feel sorry for the guy. It's not his fault. Tumbling sterling and all that. Gordon Brown is the one we should be blaming. Alistair is just a glove puppet, but Brown is the boss, and his chakras are completely screwed up. And let's not even get into his aura. Jesus! Well, okay, let's get into it. His aura is a dark, muddy colour and there are holes in it - a bit like the ozone layer - and I have to say it is beyond repair. This is what socialism leads to.'
Yes, very depressing. This is what socialism leads to.
