A little bit of politics

For the benefit of those colonials who may be unaware of it, Britain has a new Prime Minister. Not that anyone really notices or cares. In fact the two major parties are now so similar that it's hard to tell which one's in power without looking, and previous leaders are forgotten often before they've even stepped down (as was evident from a recent question on an episode of The Weakest Link I happened to see), so Gordon Brown moving around the table a bit is only of interest to the people who need to find something to fill the newspapers.

What he needs is a slogan, or possibly a theme song.

I have a proposal that with very little work could fit the bill quite nicely:

"Never a frown with Gordon Brown"

It would be worth it if only to see The Stranglers reform to sing it.

Actually, we don't have a new PM yet. Old Tony doesn't give up his post until the end of June.

But you're right about the two major parties being pretty much the same (I might also include the Lib Dems in there too). So much so that it sometimes seems pointless voting. Because, let's face it, whoever gets in, they're not going to do most of the things they said they would.
