Well its all over, and the winner is:
The Muppet Show is back on the road and is sharing facilities under canvas with the Peoples Democratic Unite & Allied Unions Circus.
At the Big Top (no tents left after Gordon had to sell them) the ringmaster calls out, Roll up, Roll up, get ready for the grimmest show on earth.
Oh no boys and girls! whats this? who is going to be the Shadow Chancellor?
Meanwhile, Ed Balls is in attendance in the Children’s Area, dressed as usual as the scruffy clown, trying hard to interest the kids in his new schools programme – “Let me show you the ways of socialism” he tells them as they run off screaming…
The Show, as they say, is about to begin… sigh..
