image for New barn door policy announced at Labour conference
A smart-alec horse bolts from the labour barn

A major announcement was, er, announced by the Prime Minister at the Labour conference this week.

Speaking to a packed audience of Labour supporters (the Conservatives and Lib Dems hadn't been invited due to their political leanings) Mr Brown outlined his new radical plan to invigorate the party and take Labour forward to the general election, although he couldn't at that point confirm what might happen at the general election.

Mr Brown said that Labour policy was now one of shutting barn doors. Not just to keep the heat in or protect the contents of barns, but to ensure that horses couldn't get back in again after they had bolted.

In what was seen as a thinly-veiled attack on the banking institutions, Mr Brown singled out black horses in particular. He said that once they had bolted from the stable, the barn door must be locked tight.

He reiterated that it was officially Labour policy to lock the barn door after any horse had bolted.
