"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Back To St Stephen's Green

"Thank you, Studio.  A Meeja-Hoar here, reporting to you live from St Stephen's Green where we've been recording talking heads giving their opinions on the latest state of talks between the Parties and we'll be re-running the tapes endlessly throughout the day.

"I have to say, Studio, that we've been wetting ourselves with excitement at the prospect of a hung parliament for many weeks now and it looks as though our vote, at least, wasn't wasted.  Now that we've helped to manipulate public opinion in favour of PR, we'll be doing everything we can to find cracks in any coalition and tear it down again.

"The Parties have been working well together so far and the talks have been amicable.  We're told that they're working in the interests of the British people who want a fair, stable and progressive government with Proportional Representation which will give us this sort of back-room horse-trading at every future election.  We won't be discussing how the Labour government manipulated changes to the electoral boundaries to bring this situation about and we certainly won't have time to discuss all the police investigations currently underway into voting fraud across the country.

"It looks as though Cameron and Clegg have reached a workable agreement and our sources are telling us that an outline of a stitch-up is now in place, although we don't yet have confirmation.  We're reaching the endgame here and could have a result very quickly once the negotiating teams have finished their discussions.  On the other hand, it could all fall very flat and we understand that the incumbent PM and Lord Mandelson are going cap in hand to the LibDems in a desperate attempt to keep Brown and Labour in power, so there could be lots more mileage for us in this.

"Now back to you while I change my coat which clashes horribly with my hair.  This is A Meeja-Hoar signing off for the time being but I'll be back with more speculation and meaningless waffle shortly when I'll tell you what may be happening in the building behind me.

"Yours Complicitly."
