STOP PRESS: Elephant falls from sky (and the last (of) Straw)


Yes, yes, yes!!! Fungus the Bogeyman will bogey us no more!

Blair wasted no time in bringing the axe out. The lying, hopeless sweaty baboon has been ditched in favour of the more aggressive, less bumbling John Reid (anyone care to guess what the new Home Office guidelines on cannabis will be?). And the toadying Jack Straw has at last been ditched from his seniority. The new face of Britain will be ... er, Margaret Beckett.

It's a curse, the Home Office, isn't it?

(More live comment at Europhobia and probably lots of other places.)

I wish you'd stop calling him Fungus the Bogeyman. Raymond Briggs' character is a gentle, philosophical soul and good at his job. Tony Blair's creation is an altogether different mound of blubber.

The superficial resemblance is striking, though, Philip.

Can't see it myself. Quite aside from Fungus' healthier complexion and far superior hairdo, he does actually have a shape (a little pear on top of a big pear), whereas Clarke looks more like something that's been drained off in a liposuction clinic and then kicked into quasi-solidity by a dose of rhetoric from Patricia Hewitt.
