Mr. Angry has not been asked! It is a national disgrace.
No, not to the Royal Wedding. He is otherwise busy that day digging for Britain on his allotment.
Progress, the neo-Blairite Think Tank which is funded by Lord Sainsbury, is producing ‘The Purple Book’. This will aim to offer voters something to back in 2015 which they think (poor dears) will be the date of the next Election.
It is being called a ‘Modernisers’ Manifesto’ which stays in the centre ground of politics. It will include essays on the economy (oh good), the role of the state (Big Society meets Coronation Street), crime, the family (please, no tax relief on marriage) and social mobility (see blog 18 April: this means emigration). They want to empower consumers against big business (you are joking).
Contributors include Shadow Cabinet ministers, Tessa Jowell, Liam Byrne and Alan Milburn and some of the newer MPs. David Miliband is, as usual, dithering. Miliband junior is watching.
Progress feels purple is the colour of new labour as it combines red and blue (pardon?).
Mr. Angry likes purple. It is his colour. It is his natural shade when he reads nonsense.
“Why?” he asks “Have I not been asked to contribute.” Mr. Angry wants to express his opinion on new Labour. His editorial summary read:
“What the ****? Who are these ******? Why the **** is my opinion not required? ****** trade unions electing a *****.
The rest of his draft contribution was rejected by lawyers acting for Progress.
In parapsychology individuals with purple auras love ritual and ceremony.
Mr. Angry invites you to the civic burning of the first copy of ‘The Purple Book’ he can obtain.
