Gordon's Decision Time.

Decision Making Exercise

While on his morning walk, Prime Minister Gordon Brown falls over, has a
heart attack and dies because the accident and emergency dept at his nearest
hospital is too understaffed to treat him in time.
So his soul arrives in Heaven and he is met by Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates.
'Welcome to Heaven,' says Saint Peter, 'Before you settle in, it seems there
is a problem. We seldom see a Socialist around these parts, so we're not
sure what to do with you.'
'No problem, just let me in; I'm a good Christian; I'm a believer,' says the PM.
'I'd like to just let you in, but I have orders from God Himself. He says
that since the implementation of his new HEAVEN CHOICES policy, you
have to spend one day in Hell and one day in Heaven. Then you must choose
where you'll live for eternity.'
'But I've already made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven,' replies Brown.
'I'm sorry .. But we have our rules,' Peter interjects. And, with that, St. Peter
escorts him to an elevator and he goes down, down, down ...all the way to Hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a lush golf course.
The sun is shining in a cloudless sky. The temperature is a perfect 22C
degrees. In the distance is a beautiful club-house. Standing in front of
it is Harold Wilson and thousands of other Socialist luminaries who had
helped him out over the years --- John Smith, Michael Foot, Jim Callaghan,
etc. The whole of the Labour Party leaders were there .. Everyone laughing,
happy, and casually but expensively dressed.
They run to greet him, to hug him and to reminisce about the good times they
had getting rich at the expense of 'suckers and peasants.'
They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster and caviar. The
Devil himself comes up to Brown with a frosty drink, 'Have a tequila and relax, Gord!'
'Uh, I can't drink anymore, I took a pledge,' says Brown, dejectedly.
'This is Hell, son. You can drink and eat all you want and not worry and
it just gets better from there!'
Brown takes the drink and finds himself liking the Devil, who he thinks is a
really very friendly bloke who tells funny jokes like himself and pulls
hilarious nasty pranks, kind of like the ones the Labour Party pulled with
the European Constitution and the Education, Immigration, Tough on Crime promises.
They are having such a great time that, before he realises it, it's time to go.

This is a variation on the American lawyer joke...:-)

I remember the last Tory government. The mortgage rate was something like 13% thats 13 quid for every £1000 you have out standing on your Mortgage.

Bring back Tony Blair

Like most apparently Labour supporters, you have a conveniently selective memory.

Inflation under Labour peaked at 26.9 per cent in 1976 and the government had to borrow £2.3bn from the IMF to tide it over (until the Winter of Discontent arrived and things got worse).

The Tories always eventually end back in power to rescue the population from the economic mess left by a Labour government.

That's why Labour was only in power for 30 of the previous 100 years before winning the 1997 election...:-)

Even then Labour inherited an economy and employment levels that had been steadily on the up for the previous four or five years.

If you doubt me, the Audit Commission reports will verify these facts.

By the way, this is similar to the "variation on the American lawyer joke" I mentioned earlier:
