Wonk 'humour'

Yes, it is an oxymoron, as this laboured April Fool chez Demos proves.

Just for a fraction of a second I was encouraged into thinking that this - "So we're open-sourcing our proposal-writing process" was going to facilitate some Miliband-style fun and games, but alas no, it is a dog related prank. And as you will see, it is a dog with fleas, hookworms and mange:

"1. Introduction: Paws for thought

Western dogma constructs dogs as passive recipients of mankind's generosity. But a bit of humility on our part might reveal huge opportunities for learning from Dogs. Dogs can be taken as "mood pioneers". They are loyal. They are great at fetching things. They are unembarrassed. And they are loyal.

....

6. Lapdogs and Poodles - Canine foreign policy

Is the tail wagging the dog? How can we get more dog representation in institutions like the United Nations? Do we need a 'United Alsatians'? Could this help avoid some undognified disputes between former allies?"


Etcetera, etcetera. I am prepared to alter my stance on the death penalty over the United Alsatians 'quip'. Hanging, drawing and quartering would be a start.
