Whenever I see that picture of Brown my desire to stick my fingers into his eyes... sorry... eye... gets ever stronger. Smug git.

Stalin was remarkably fey-looking in his youth, wasn't he. Strange.

Crikey Lilith, you've been dredging the deep;-)

Daisy said...

is your forehead a bit warm darlin? perhaps i just can't see straight...this damn flu...would someone please take it from me....pleaseeeeee

Lilith said...

Which is the charismatic leader?

Oh Daisy, Daisy, get well soooon!

Philipa said...

That's Stalin?? He was quite handsome in a lace hankerchief kinda way. Brown just isn't pretty enough to be a great leader, he's just a background bastard.

Lilith said...

I know who I'd've (enough apostrophes already)rather spent the evening with down the Students Union, Pip.

They all start out as young idealists, then dark things seem to take over. Brown hasn't achieved the ruthlessness of Stalin. With the emerging database state, anything could happen in the future. The consolation is, given this showers track record, the id card scheme will never work properly. In the meantime, £billions will be wasted/syphoned of by cronies.

Lilith said...

quite so Fuchsia...I think this is why they need the 90 days detention...

Stalin had vital signs..but Our Leader?

Lilith said...

Splund, let's hope 2008 sees the back of him.

The Hitch said...

hes repulsive isnt he?
No wonder he had to pay a woman to marry him.

Philipa said...

Can't say I'd go for either of them Lil, but you know my taste in men is catastrophic! But hey, at least Che could ride a motorbike :-)

I'm not quite sure what Broon rides...

There shoud be a health warning with is pic - No Naked Flames. He looks ready to go up in smoke like the 5th November at Lewes.

Stalin's excuse is that he was beaten by his Da. Brown's is that he was brainwashed by his stern Presbyterian pater.

It's endlessly quoted, but true nevertheless ... "They fuck you up, your mum and dad ..." (P. Larkin)

Daisy, sorry to hear you're under the weather. Lots of fluids & bedrest is what my quack always prescribes.

Philipa said...

dennis - they do indeed :-/

daisy - my mum prescribes half and half brandy and milk warmed up in the microwave with sugar to taste, that's in a mug. It doesn't get rid of the cold but by the time you regain consciousness you've got over the virus. Pickled virus.

Daisy said...

dennis thank you for the advice...i am on 7up and jello at the moment...hoping to have a banana tomorrow

philipa thank you for that darlin but i have been throwing everything up so milk stuff is off the plate for a bit...my papa use to give us a glass of blackberry brandy...by the time we woke up we were always better...lol

"Brown just isn't pretty enough to be a great leader, he's just a background bastard"

Pips, you've hit the nail on the head! He really does hide away when leadership is needed.

Daisers, get well soon too!

electro-kevin said...

Get well soon, Daisy.

I don't think Brown is Stalinist - too much credit there ... he's just a tosser.

You caught the gist of the post, Anonymong.
