Hey Cameron - can advertising save us from cuts? You say that we're all going to have to suffer unbearable agony, locked up with bags on our heads with needles under our fingernails and the Barney song blasting in our ears. But you also say that Tuesday is when the rubber hits the road. At first I thought, what are you talking about, do you have some weird garage where your car is suspended in the air when not in use and dropped onto the ground as required? But then I did my research, and it turns out that the phrase, which I'd never heard before, is advertising Firestone tyres. I hope you got a good deal. I reckon that if you do some more of that sort of thing we can avoid all the nasty cuts. When you do prime minister's question time, your answers should all be things like 'In answer to the honourable gentleman's question, you can't fit quicker than a Kwik-Fit fitter'.
It struck me that the Tories are getting a great deal out of this coalition. A photo caption on a BBC news said 'Danny Alexander is responsible for the budget cuts'. Nothing to do with the Tories then, whose government this basically is. As BBC Radio 4's Rebecca Keating observed in an interesting piece, it looks like Cameron has learned a trick or two from Stanley Baldwin. But as far as I know Stanley Baldwin never advertised tyres. Do let us know if you have any information to the contrary.
All those random stories about things being good and bad for you - they're quite useful, as you can pick and choose the ones you want to support your choices, preferences and peccadilloes. The latest one says that drinking several cups of tea and/or coffee each day can help prevent heart disease. That is ideal for me, because I usually drink several cups of coffee each day, and, like most people, I don't want heart disease. Heart disease is rubbish. Coffee is great. It Is What It Is endorses coffee and undorses heart disease. Can we have some health promotion money?
that's all from me for now
see you around
