The 70s revival starts here

No, not platform boots, interminable drum solos and Roger Dean artwork, but this:

"Ahead of Gordon Brown's speech to the Labour Party Conference, Derek Simpson the joint leader of Unite, is calling on the Prime Minister to throw off the shackles of new Labour and reveal the real Labour".

The economy in a mess? Check
Rampant inflation? Check
A PM who does not know his humerus from his coccyx? Check
Rising unemployment? Check
Trade unionists attempting a shake down? Check
Baling out failed companies with our money? Check


Power cuts and the three day week - not quite yet.

Labour is quite real enough already, thank you.

""Ahead of Gordon Brown's speech to the Labour Party Conference, Derek Simpson the joint leader of Unite, is calling on the Prime Minister to throw off the shackles of new Labour and reveal the real Labour".

Yesterday, on the Letters From A Tory blog, as quoted on the BBC Today programme website: "The door has been opened for attacks on City bonuses and his New Labour shackles have been thrown off as Brown veers to the left and gets the core voters back on side."

Notice any similarity?

Nice one. I, however, long to see Gordon Agonistes 'Eyeless in Gaza at the Mill with slaves'.

incidentally, power cuts may be much closer than we think: may be posting on this in the coming days
