Only the crumbliest, flakiest manifesto...

It is being dubbed the 'Cadbury Law'. And it is coming to a manifesto near you. But what is it?

It's Gordon Brown's promise that the future takeover of any British company will be scrutinised... like never before.

Now, hasn't the government made promises about these "touchstone" issues in the past? Didn't they tell us that the House of Lords, for example, would become a wholly elected chamber?

Well, party insiders are saying: "Yeah, but this time its different."

What they probably mean is: "It's election time again."

Or could it be, the bad press generated by the chocolate factory takeover has left poor Gordon feeling like a bit of a Charlie?


  1. Some chocolate bars are flaky and some high cocoa content. We know the kind that Brown likes

  2. The marvellous thing about lies is that you never have to commit to them

  3. As someone who likes his beans, I prefer the coffee variety myself
    But, yes, this manifesto commitment is not worth the paper it is written on.
    Labour haven't a great track record when it comes to keeping promises

  4. Can I just say that I am a man of distinction?

  5. My favorite bar is deep fried

    Well, I'm sure that there are enough people who will buy this idea or will it to be so
