Brown Declares War on Darkness

Gordon Brown has seized the opportunity of a visit to Auschwitz to vow to battle 'darkness in the world'. As he seems to be well on his way to the Napoleon Suite at the Funny Hilton, he'd be well advised to study the pioneering anti-darkness work of the great De Selby in Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman - as discussed here. Conquering darkness could also have the beneficial effect of ending the affliction known as sleep, thereby liberating Brown's grateful subjects to toil away 24 hours a day generating tax revenues. Oh yes the Battle Against Darkness should be up there alongside the great battle against global warming. Onward citizens to a glorious future, liberated at last from the twin plagues of sleep and black air!
