Him Wrong Un

Glorious revolutionary tidings from the Central Conference of the People's Democratic Party of the Workers! Open and transparent elections to the central leadership body of the party have been completed and a successor to the departed Dour Leader has been chosen!

A magnificent poster commemorating the accession of the Dire Leader

Upon the announcement the victor stumbled onto the stage of the Keir Hardie Memorial Palace, seemingly dazed and blinking in disbelief at the affection and trust his comrades had shown in him. Rousing cheers of "Hurrah!", and loud shouts of slogans such as "Long Live David!", "New Labour Forever!", "Devoted Deference!" and "Hang on, who's that?", "Didn't the chimp lookalike win?", "Which idiot counted the postal votes?!" reverberated through the hall.

Such was the unbridled joy at the sight of their new leader that many comrades were moved to tears and stood shaking their heads, scarcely able to believe it was true. Quite spontaneously emotional cries echoed around the hall: "Him Wrong Un! Him Wrong Un!". Him Wrong Un waved back to the greatly agitated participants, returning their vigorous salutes in a most statesmanlike fashion.

Taking revolutionary fervour to new levels, Him Wrong Un dispensed with conventional norms of diction and charisma, and addressed the quivering throng in a unique fashion all his own. He warmly congratulated the participants in the Conference who have devotedly worked for the development and prosperity of the party and its grandees.

He expressed expectation and belief that the participants in the Conference who have steadfastly followed the road of the revolution, remaining single-mindedly loyal to the party, would play their pioneer's role in the revolution and the construction in the future, too, and thereby creditably perform their honorable mission and duty as vanguard fighters of the party. Except for the misguided devotees of the disgraced Beaming Leader and his discredited philosophy of the Third Path to Enlightened Rule Through Public Finance Initiatives, Military Entanglement and Being, Y'Know a Straight Kinda Guy who shall be purged forthwith.

Up Periscope!

The mists have cleared over Brigadoon just long enough to send you in the direction of a terrific read over at Calum Cashley's blog. Scarce a wild-eyed, woad-daubed argument to be found. He'll be giving independence a good name if he's not careful.

PS to whom it may concern: the population of Brigadoon increased by one earlier in the summer, hence the dearth of posts of late! Normal (i.e. sporadic) service will be resumed at some point, more than likely in the run up to the elections next year when the Labour bullshit machine will be in overdrive.
