Morning Advertiser - Every Little Helps?

A piece for this Thursday's (27/XI/08) pub trade magazine Morning Advertiser. The author here wonders at the drastic dichotomy in this country between those sectors that need to provide excellent service in order to survive ( like Tesco's for example) and the Government's incompetant legislative sectors that are just happy to 'muddle through', wasting resources and failing to deliver on time or within budget. He goes on to wonder what would happen if those running the UK Government and Tesco's were to swap places, and how long it would take the former to run the latter's business into the ground.

So, I've shown a bemused Gordon Brown in Tesco's uniform.

Bonfire Night/ Guy Fawkes' Night

Remember, Remember
The Fifth of November
Gunpowder, Treason and Plot

Jacobean anti-Catholic clampdown, or an excuse for fireworks, bonfires, toffee, oxtail soup and parkin? You decide.
