Good news for savers and for hard-working families. And a nice tune.

Love it.

I love it, too, it's my Budget Day Song. I give all my money to millionaires and I don't give a fuck about you. Should be the Coalition election anthem.

It was mrs woar's pick of the pops.

Great harmonies. Almost as good as Phil and Don. Cheers, Mr Smith.

Nicer versions, stronger harmonies are on other clips; this was the first I found. Cheers yourself, mr the noblest prospect.

They'd make a great house band for Ruin. However, these guys have the gig at the moment:

Yes, Jolly Fuckers, a breath of fresh air, God bless them; like Roger Daltrey mighta been, if he'd had a mind to call his own; proper rage; reminded me, also, of Wilko Feelgood. They'll go nowhere, showbusiness can't absorb people like that; imagine Jonafun Woss or Graham Norton, sitting these two on the sofa.

Hope the clouds roll away Mr Ishmael and you see it get dark over the Flow.

Absolutely no cloud, from here, mr yardarm but even at total eclipse, it was all just a big dazzle, a bit of shadow over the trees but no drama. I will take a look at the local paper in a few minutes. I am just grateful that the Coalition have created the conditions for long-term astronomic reform, like they have. We should all be very grateful.

Here's an example of what I'm prepared to chip in for: Stargazing Live. Yes, the bouncing Oirishman is perhaps not to everyone's taste but he takes his job seriously and is communicates his excitement and engagement, whilst wrangling the guests.

Cameras, tech crews, animations, even the ground staff to organize events do not appear by magic, although there will also be a large number of volunteers involved. It all costs money.

Instead of treating astronomy as the preserve of university departments, they get out there and introduce everybody to a foundation science. Who knows where that enlightenment might lead?

Few would argue with that, mrs woar, but is it a fair exchange for all the imaginations stultified by the dismal core product, East Enders, the Dimblebys, , Portillo, Wark, Humphreys, Paxman, Clarkson, Parsons, Rantzen and all the other Jobs4Lifers, whose ranks, it appears, O'Fatso and the Grinning Boy Prof have joined?
