Remember, remember, the 5th of November...

Appropriately enough there were fireworks in the House of Commons today, as Gordon 'Aloysius' Brown and 'Call me Dave' Cameron battled it out to see who could gain the most capital out of Barack Obama's historic victory in yesterday's US election. Our glorious leader claimed that Obama was a "serious man for serious times" and embodied the "progressive" values shared by Labour, but Master Cameron responded by contrasting the change with Labour's offer of "more of the same", and by throwing GBs comment about the present economic crisis being "no time for a novice" back in his face. Meanwhile, Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond sent a message to Obama offering his "heartfelt congratulations", adding "Have you got 20 pence for a cup of tea?"
The honeymoon looks to be short-lived, however, as Borat Obama is allegedly already planning to invade North Korea, cut all ties with China, pull faces at Russia and entrust the running of the economy to Bjork.

Today's Haiku Film Review:

The American President (1995) -

Some wish fulfilment
As Douglas's president
Falls for Eco-chick.
