Someone thinks Brown is King Canute

" We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to prevent coastal erosion on the east coast of Yorkshire". Source

As opposed to the west coast of Yorkshire, of course.


And yes I know it was Canute's SpAd's who thought he could hold back the sea, not the king himself.

o/t: Senor Guido appears to be "unavailable". Have the hackers done a Harriet on him??

No, he had a technical glitch, it's back up now.

Poor old 'Harry's Place' is having problems again though...

The PM could hold back the water by putting taxes up on the rich. And forcing them to pay for defence against flood ersion.

I always though King Canute was rather a sweetie. Trying to convince all those silly Viking courtiers - why do I see John Cleese et cie leaping about in elaborate Shakespeare mode? - of the reality of life. I mean, the whole scene, as reported, was simply Pythonesque.
