But yesterday, Postman Pat leapt back into the limelight with an astonishing decision, a directive that may well win him - and will certainly win this woeful Government - a minor place in the history books.
Just as the furore over Islam4UK and their preposterously offensive coffin-waving ideas was dying down, The Government have blundered in, late to the party as ever, and deftly fucked it all up.
In their usual authoritarian left fashion, the Government have once again decided that the best way to deal with something they don't like or understand is to ... err ... ban it.
Postman Pat, visions of Daily Mail headlines doubtless whirling in his brain, said:
"I have today laid an order which will proscribe al-Muhajiroun, Islam4UK, and a number of the other names the organisation goes by ...
Proscription is a tough but necessary power to tackle terrorism and is not a course we take lightly.
Way to go guys! Fucking genius.
In one stroke, you have given these idiots huge publicity, a sense of martyrdom and a damn good reason to be a lot more fucking secretive in future.
You've also, yet a-fucking-gain, used the terrorist bogeyman, and the knee-jerk, draconian laws you flung together after you'd invented him, to lazily deal with something - anything - that upsets you.
Yes, these guys are fully-fledged foaming fuckwits, but are they actully terrorists? No.
As the contemptible Islam4UK spokesman Anjem Choudary, gulping down the oxygen of publicity on the Today programme, said:
"I challenge anyone to authentically prove that any of our members have been involved in any violent activities or promoting violent activities or asking anyone to carry out any sort of military operations.
"We are always at pains to stress that we are an ideological and political organisation.
You know what? No-one will, because no-one can. The nutter is fucking right.
For the benefit of those who don't - or don't want to - understand how democracy should work, the crazed extremist kindly, patronisingly explained:
: ".. if you don't agree with the government and you want to expose their foreign policy, then freedom quickly dissipates and turns into dictatorship."
You know what? This swivel-eyed, bearded hate-monkey is actually right, for fuck's sake.
The banning of a political organisation? The threat of 10 years in prison for joining? No Free Speech for those the Government don't agree with?
Jesus Christ, how the fuck did we come to this?
