Good news!

Yes! England retain the ashes, with a comfortable win over the Australians on what good ol' Aggers described as a "Golden August Evening". Congratulations to the boys, especially Messrs. Harmison, Flintoff, Broad and Strauss.

While gloating is, of course, unnecessary and so distasteful, CF cannot help but reproduce the following, from Uncle Bob:


Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Merv Hughes, Joe Mangle, Dame Edna, Kylie Minogue,Crocodile Dundee...Crocodile Dundee! Your boys took one hell of a beating!


Astonishingly enough, Gordon Brown has yet to crawl out of the wo0dwork, fake grin smeared across his face, to try to sup some of the glory.

CF is sure he will. After all, he can claim some credit for this, for once: as Guido points out, he was so busy hiding from questions about Libyan bombers, that he completely forgot to wish the England team luck.

This victory was therefore guaranteed.

Great day, but please Gordon do not, do not, do not mention Spurs great start to the season.

I've said he's been waiting for the Ashes result before emerging from his hidden hole.
He'll be out for the open top parade.

I think you will find that Brown declares this a great victory for the British cricket team.

I wouldn't be surprised if he declared it a great victory for the Labour Government, the Hoon!

Ever noticed how well the country runs when the politicians all fuck off?

Can Gordon please visit Anfield some time soon? And there's nothing wrong with a bit of gloating. It does the soul good. And it's even better when the reason you're gloating is you've got one over on the convicts! Mind you, who is going to serve all the drinks in our major cities now? All the barstaff have hung themselves!

Yes! You'd think more people would make the connection...
