Conference Report

And behold, the beast that dines on darkness and is fed, whose lifeblood is calamity and woe, rose to his feet refreshed, the dark blood of crisis coursing through his veins, and bellowed, 'I am Brown, devourer of darkness, conqueror of death. What kills you makes me strong. My dominion shall be without end. Look on my wife, ye mighty, and... no, hang on...' (Enter men with white coats and large syringes).


  1. You make him sound almost interesting. With Brown in charge, the world will all end in a whimper, a yawn, a grand indifference because we're all so bloody bored with our politicians.

  2. Sounds like a Stoppard play. The one with all the gymnasts.

  3. Jumpers? Enjoy the islands...

  4. Stoppard? No Susan, that's from the Hindu Vedas!

    Still, to me, he resembles a forlorn elephant at the London Zoo, rather than a "a devourer of darkness" - quite unlike that 'blond beast of prey' Charles Clarke, with his ears like errant wings...


  5. Yes a forlorn elephant - maybe the one on Brass Eye that got its trunk stuck up its fundament...

  6. You are rattling around dionisis. A gift to some.

  7. I don't use my family as props, except the missus, well, she comes free so why not. Milly band? thats the last time I let him use tongues. Ruth? for family reasons, yeah, right.
    Anyhoo, must away, world crisis to sort, new tax rates to work out, the bankers need to lick my backside again, ta ta for now.

  8. I see them rather as the prophets in Life of Brian. There they all are, standing on their pillars and ranting, while everyone else gets on with life, occasionally awarding them points for a piece of outstanding nonsense, and generally thanking the stars that one hasn't gone soft in the head to the point of being reduced to earning one's living as a prophet. What a fate! I can't see that this has much to do with elephants which are noble beasts - stoic, implacable, highly intelligent and never forlorn. Broon is something more furtive and hairy, with a burrow.

  39. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year

    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
    the shell to her ear and

    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
