Sir Bufton Huffchester is definitely losing the plot. He's now recommending that the mercantilist Euro-statist, Kenneth "Where's my Cut?" Clarke, should lead the Tories out of the political doldrums.
Oh dear, Sir Huff, how sad.
Here's my missive penned to the blue pencil holder at The Labourgraph:

Ken Clarke? Oh dear, Sir Huff. What a terrible shame.
There's only one man who can save the Tories.
Alas, Daniel Hannan is embroiled in Europe and Cameron is too scared to bring him back, because Cameron's 'leadership', such as it is, would only last about 15 minutes if Hannan were an MP.
The Tories will remain toothless halfwits until Hannan can be persuaded to return to England, and become the Prime Minister of cutting the British government monster in half, and Boris Johnson can be persuaded to give up London to become his Deputy and Minister of Fun, to give us all a laugh while Hannan does the hard work of slicing off all the heads of the insatiable and useless statist hydra.
Clarke? Sir Huff, you really must be joking. It is he that got us into this mess in the first place by allowing Lord Edward George to inflate the money supply, to falsely boost British industry, back in the early 90s, thus creating massive malinvestments, when government spending and regulation cutbacks should have been the order of the day instead, to promote entrepreneurialism and growth based on hard economic reality rather than the false bubble dreams of Keynesians.
