Choreographed and synchronised debating?

A smile moment, captured by the Mail

Oh, and why does Mr Brown keep wearing a royal purple tie?

He wears Emperor Purple ties so that everyone can see he is an Emperor - he is just borrowing from the Roman Emperors - he is, after all, a historian (Dr. Brown PhD Edinburgh)and would know about these things

The whole Labour front bench turn out in purple these days - looks as if they're trying to distance themselves from Old Labour and the horny-handed sons of toil. It was probably Mandy's idea.

So any ideas for what will replace the Red Flag at the next conference?

As for the picture:

'It's just a jump to the left
And a step to the ri-i-ight...'

I think the White Flag will have to replace the Red one... ;)
