Safer in Chains

Fury at Salmond horror

Markets were calm amid an epic of underwear-changing at Westminster as the proud English nation of Scotland voted to stay in the United Kingdom.

Rebel leader Alex Salmond conceded defeat, but it is understood that he has not as yet come crawling to London confessing himself a traitor and begging for the highest possible penalty. This continued recalcitrance can only damage his case in a free, unbiased and responsible media.

Britain's Head Boy has more or less promised to do what he can to consider delivering on the "vows" which were drawn up on the back of an envelope two weeks ago.

If any meaningful reforms have been allowed to creep into the package, the Government will most likely rely on the Lords and the UKIP fringe of the Conservative Party to vote them down.

Britain's Head Boy promised a "chaotic, top-down programme of revolutionary rah-rah", which will commence as soon as the present arrangement has given his party the overall majority to which it considers itself entitled by the grace of Murdoch, Thatcher and God.

A healthy and vigorous debate has already started, at almost all levels of the top of the Westminster hierarchy, about what specific power-grabs, gerrymanders and boondoggles can be perpetrated under the rubric of constitutional reform.

The Labour leader, Ed Milibeing, is thought to prefer a slightly different system of British Neoliberal Party hegemony to the Conservatives, while Nick Clegg's Deputy Conservatives agree with both, with which they disagree.

    Such faintheartedness deserves punishment, or at least that's how it is viewed by public school boys.

    In the view of public schoolboys, everything deserves punishment except being One of Us. All the benefits of racism, but without the bother of seeking out a minority to victimise.
