Pre May, there we were, The People's Front of Judea, the Judean People's Front, and the Romans, all sitting around deciding who to vote for,
"Well all right, but apart from saving the NHS, introducing a minimum wage, Sure Start, Peace in NI, winter fuel payments, re-building all the schools and hospitals, free nursery places for 3 and 4 year olds, crime reduced by over 40%, tax and pension credits, low inflation, low interest rates and low unemployment, What did Labour ever do for us?
"Saved the world from global depression?"
"Oh, Global Depression. Shut up!"
We stood in the queue dutifully as that very nice man told us where to go and what to do,
"Good, out of the door, line on the left, one cross each in the box marked "Conservative. Crucifixion?"
"Good, out of the door......."
But it's OK, Dave would have us all whistling his tune "Always look on the Big Society side of life," a nauseatingly optimistic song, given the circumstances.
After all that excitement of the Clegg surge! The growing hope that things could be different. We started to believe that the People's Front of Judea really could be worth a shot.
Oh how we kick ourselves now, when we find he was working for the Judean People's Front all along disguised as one of us.
It turns out he was never the Messiah, just a very naughty boy.
