The REAL Labour List

CF ain’t no Tory, but few can exceed him on his hatred of Labour and their many ‘achievements’, so he was delighted to see this list from wee Billy Hague.

Here's a few of the things NuLab have done for us:

Blimey, I thought the list was never going to end.

Hope you don't mind if I borrow that.

Depressing isn't it. On a cheerier note, I found a delightful little shop that is still selling proper light bulbs so I bought several.
