The Prime Minister’s New Budget

Check out this great article, adapted from the tale "The Emporer's New Clothes" and written by Aaron at grandinite.blogspot.com, here is an excerpt:

MANY, many moments ago lived a Prime Minister, who thought so much of his government that he spent all his money (and more) in order to maintain it; his only ambition was to be always in power. He did not care for his backbenchers, and the House of Commons did not amuse him; the only thing, in fact, he thought anything of was to drive out and show some governmental legitimacy. He had a policy position for every hour of the day; and as one would say of a Prime Minister, “He is in his cabinet,” so one could say of him, “The Prime Minister is in an emergency cabinet meeting.” (link)

Well written piece. 'tis true that children's fairy tales have a much deeper meaning. Maybe PMPM will now go with Peter Pan to Neverland.
