Once upon a time an Italian woodcarver named Geppetto carved a wooden puppet he called Pinocchio but unlike most wooden puppets he was a living wooden puppet. Geppetto for years taught Pinnocchio right from wrong and treat all people with respect and courtesy.
Many years later Pinocchio turned up in London after reading about socialism which seemed like a good idea because it sounds good with great words of inspiration. He read it was a social system in which the the means of producing and distributing goods are owned collectively and political power is exercised by the whole community.
So the naive little boy joined the Labour Party unaware they were all corrupt unscrupulous bastards who fiddled their expenses. He was even unaware that many of them were multi millionaires who did not give a rats arse for the working classes so poor Pinocchio did not realise they were trying to turn him into an ASS.
The leaders in the Labour Party thought it would be great to get more people controlled like puppets by trying to get a puppet to drum up support.
The whole thing collapsed however due to one thing Pinocchios nose kept growing the more he told lies and when he tried to explain the actions of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown his nose would end up many feet long so the Labour Party sacked him because he wanted to be a truthful little politician.
