More on that speech

A little light number-crunching of the text:

'you know' - 9
'Fair / fairness / unfair etc' - 41
'Britain /British' - 36
'United Kingdom' - 1
'England' - 2 (inc Bank of England), Scotland, Wales, NI - 1 apiece
'Change/d' - 24
'Labour '- 21, of which 'new Labour' - 3
'I / me' - 82 / 12
'You / we' - 26 /106
'People' - 55
'Conservative/s' - 13
Liberal / SNP etc - aero
'Europe' - 4
'World' - 19
'Global' - 10
United States - zero
International - zero

So, in order to spare anyone the need to read the gottverdommern thing, here is the ringtone sized version of his speech: 'You know, Labour has changed the British people to make Britain fairer'.

My favourite bit of the transcript is this:

"They want us to believe that, like us, they now care about public services. But when Mr Cameron actually talks to his party about their spending plans he says the difference between Labour and Tory levels of public investment will be ÃÆâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâ€ â€Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾¢ÃƒÆ’ƒÆ’†âââہ¡¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¾¢ÃƒÆ’ƒÆ’Æâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’Æ’¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¡¬ âââ€Ã…¡¬ÃƒÆ’Æ’¢ÃƒÆ’¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡¬Ãƒâ€¦¾¢¢ÃƒÆ’ƒÆ’Æâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâ€ â€Ã¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾¢ÃƒÆ’ƒÆ’†âââہ¡¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¾¢¢ÃƒÆ’ƒÆ’Æâ€â„¢ÃƒÆ’ƒâ€ ââ‚

22 more lines of that....

Apparently, the dying words of an unfortunate Rwandan child were ten lines of the same.

More later, including running it through the bullfighter, if that turns up anything amusing.

But why do Liberal/SNP get an aero?
(PLEEEZ don't correct it).

Surely the official SNP choc bar is the Mars, deep-fried.

Btw, R-Peston, destroyer of N-Rock & HBoS, reckons Bernanke's bail-out means the banks get 2ce the value of the dettes to go in the Naughty Box. Cripes.

Good job I wasn't larging it about spelling / grammatical errors in the speech transcript.

Since we are going off topic (rim shot...), an amusing enough way to pass the time is to come up with chocolate bar reference in film titles - Mars Attacks, Mutiny on the Bounty ete etc.

Credit Crunchie?

You know, of course, that Bounty comes from "bonté"? (I mention this to show off my é)
