Political Funeral Blues

Hide all the clocks, and hide that mobile phone,
The Cabinet’s told Brown he’s on his own.
Prepare the padded cell; sedate the bum
And let the headshrinks in their white coats come.

Frank Dobson says Purnell isn't a very significant figure and it isn't a significant cat.

No doubt the "he wants to spend more time with his family- media pressure- other commitments" will be doing the rounds tomorrow.

Know anywhere in Bristol I can buy champagne at this time of night Nick?

I'll give Nulab one thing, 24 hours licensing!

I'm off to Tesco for a bottle of Moet!

Harveys used to have a splendid winebar last time I was in Brissle, Steven. Cheers !

Bristol Marriot will let anyone in the bar.

I'll give you John Avery's number if all else fails, Steven.

His family have been supplying bubbly to thirsty Bristolians since the early 1700s.

Nick, will you permit me to remind you of my last Stopalltheclocks verse from April's McBride compo at my blog:

I know I’m not wanted; well, fuck everyone!
I’m going to murder Rebekkah and dismantle the Sun.
Tell Gordon the moron I did what I could
But the truth is he’ll never come to any fucking good.

Excellent and well observed, as ever. This was the modest Tuscan follow-up Clerihew to yours, on Guido:

The cabinet for James Purnell
Had become a living hell
The PM, (self-appointing)
Will need physically disjointing.
