The rant does not normally 'do' Jokes but with an election on this contribution to serious and well informed political debate merits a small mention. If it causes offence, in certain qwuarters, like Downing Street I can only apologise.
A man on his way home from work in central London comes to a dead halt in traffic. He spots a policeman walking between the lines of stopped cars so he rolls down the window and asks "Officer, what's the hold-up ?" The officer replies, "The Prime Minister is depressed, so he stopped his motorcade, is threatening to douse himself with gasoline and set himself on fire. He says that no one believes his stories about why we went to war in Iraq, or the connection between Saddam and al-Qa'ida, or that his policies are mis understood. Then the press accused him of lying about Iraq and the NHS and now George Brown is getting up his nose. So we're taking up a collection for him." The man asks, "How much have you got so far ?" The officer replies, "About 64 gallons but folks are still siphoning".
