Eight for 2008

It is meme time again, and His Grace the Archbishop Cranmer has invited me to have a crack at an eight part wish list. This will call for further mulling, but I will start with the big one:

1 - Gordon Brown to resign the prime ministership, and to apply to be the Steward and Bailiff of Her Majesty's Three Chiltern Hundreds of Stoke, Desborough and Burnham in the county of Buckingham (The Chiltern Hundreds). Further he will offer a lengthy apology to the nation and to the better man (yes, I did just write that) he plotted and connived against for years, refuse a pension, any offers for his memoirs and then disappear from public life. By way of making amends, he will then do something at least harmless and possibly useful, perhaps along the lines of starting a sheep farm on an uninhabited island somewhere in the Outer Hebrides, while - naturally - forswearing any agricultural subsidies.

2 - The cancellation of the 2012 Olympics

3 - The End of History, pt II, this time featuring the final triumph of liberal democracy, free markets and the rule of law in China, the Middle East, Africa, and elsewhere.

To be continued.

Brown is awash with flaws, but I find it impossible to believe that he is a worse man than Toni.

Agreed, Dearie Me. Brown is small-minded, small-spirited, touchy, insecure and probably not much fun at a party.

Blair had evil seeping out of every pore. I sincerely wish him very ill.

PS - I second cancelling the Olympics. Let someone else suffer. And let's blow up that big mosque at the same time. Ken could make money by raffling off chances to press the dynamite button.
