A squadron of flying pigs are expected to save the Labour government at the next election. It is believed that as there are actually no policies the government is going to introduce extreme measures to survive. The flying pigs are just one of a number of initiatives being tried by the current government. There is also thought to be a suggestion that Alistair Darling really will 'tell that to the marines'.
Gordon Brown has seen the green shoots of the recovery. They are on the far side of the moon and in the coldest place in hell. He hopes to be able to gather the green shoots in time for the next election.
He needs to be aware that Labour voters will be as rare as rocking horse shit at the next election.
