I've got an intruder in the garden. It just turned up late last year in the middle of the garden looking like nothing I've ever seen before, so I left it to grow a little in the hope that it might turn into something that I recognised.
I don't, but it's got a whole size bigger and there are little ones coming up in the front garden (And sprouting out of the footpath) now.
What is it?
I'm thinking I do know what it is, but I'm sayin' nuthin'...

It's with some relief that I can announce that on this week's 'Any Questions?' the Labour party seems to have seriously cut back on it's annoying habit of referring to the government as "This Tory-led coalition", it was getting really annoying.
For their part the Tories are being a lot more careful with their "The mess the previous government left us" line following increasing barracking from the audience on both 'Any Questions?' and 'Question Time'. They were, I suspect, a little worried that the general public was slowly making the connection.
It goes like this. The banks go bust and plunge us into a giant economic crisis, the New Labour government bails them out to the tune of millions of quid using our money because allowing the banks to go bust would be unthinkable (I'm thinking about it and it's starting to seem like a pretty good idea to me) thus making our financial condition even worse. The Conservatives get in with the help of the Liberals and start banging on about the mess Labour left them. The bankers continue to pay themselves huge bonuses and the Tories refuse to do anything about it. Then it's revealed that over half of the Conservative party's funding comes from the banks...
The Labour party gave our money to the banks so the banks could give eleven and a half million quid to the Conservatives.
And they have the cheek to bray about the Labour Party being funded by the unions...
Meanwhile, back at 'Any Questions?', would it be possible for politicians to stop 'Thinking'? They seem to be continuously thinking that something is right, that this is the way to go, that the public will support this. There's nothing wrong with thinking, but they're adding the subtext "I think, therefore I'm right".
No you're not. Now stop it or I may have to kill you*.
*I keep slipping this in to my blogs because it apparently attracts the attention of the forces of goodness, anti-terrorism, and all that is right, and I like the idea that my blogs are being read by important people.
