Idiot politicians

Further to my last post about senior politicians engaging brains before playing to the gallery, perhaps it would be too much to expect back benchers to be able to use a bit of logic and memory.

Again during PMQ's a couple of MP's (I was in the car and didn't catch the names) demanded that the PM and/or Chancellor insist that the bailed out banks provide mortgages and loans to people.

Surely they have enough brain cells to remember that they were happy with banks giving loans out willy-nilly that we are in this mess in the first place? Why don't they tell the PM to demand that banks only make sensible loans?

No no no! Keep up at the back! History was re-written last week!

The Official Version is now that the whole thing is because of a combination of Thatcherite deregulation, greedy bankers, the bonus culture and reckless borrowing by buy-to-let landlords!

Our Beloved Leader has spent the last eleven years trying to get to grips with the Age Of Irresponsibility!

Finally, he has managed this and will henceforth usher The Sheeple into a Bright New Future (cont. page 94).
