I would prefer it if you'd linked to Guido's caption competition for today. Much funnier than usual...

As I pointed out on ConservativeHome, Jonathan hasn't made a very good case. At all. 31 out of 34 oppose Post Office privatisation. With figures like that, ConHome needs to be paying a little more attention to what the party's fanbase thinks.

Re Grim Reaper's recommendation of Guido's caption competition, even if you don't want to read the comments (not much above the usual standard) be sure to take the link suggested by one of them to Fuseli's Nightmare, a brilliant parallel to the awful photograph.

True enough. But I can't help but wonder who the horse sticking its head out of the curtain is meant to be. Peter Mandelson is my guess, what's yours?

Grim Reaper: well, it's certainly a pantomime horse.

Horse: 'Hey, Derek, fancy a canter?'

Draper: 'Can't you see I'm in a session?'

One of the endearing things about Fuseli is his complete inability to draw. Try to work out where the bits of that woman are.

They are worried about being sexually aroused

Is there such a thing as the private sector anymore?

We have a choice.

Socialism or bust.
