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.
