Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

The fang-toothed Clown has an idea.

It's here.

Hmm, but no, Mrs R couldn't bring herself to go along with this scheme, but you might want to. You won't know if you don't take a look.

And no, don't worry, it isn't rude and there isn't a single swear word.


Read all about it.

Not a single swear word from Obo? He's definitely off colour.

It's an idea, but not for me Mrs R. There are some things in life you just know you couldn't do - and that's one of them.

Where's Billy Bragg when they need him?

In my misspent youth, an organisation I belonged to was suddenly affiliated to the Labour Party - whether you liked it or not (and I didn't), a chunk of your subs went to Labour HQ to enrol you as a Party member. I fought against this successfully, but to my knowledge was the only one to do so.

At the same time, the party were heavily recruiting at Red Wedge concerts, where Party membership could be added to the cost of your ticket for a nominal charge.

After a few months of this, Labour triumphantly announced - quelle surprise! - record membership numbers.
