Blair and Brown

Tony Blair called Gordon Brown into his office one day and said,

"Gordon, I have a great idea! We are going to go all out to win back
Middle England".

"Good idea PM, how will we go about it?" said Brown.

"Well' said Blair "we'll get ourselves two of those long Barbour coats,
some proper wellies ' a stick and a flat cap, oh and a Labrador.
Then we'll really look the part. We'll go to a nice old country pub, in
Much Something or other or one of those villages and we'll show we

"Right PM" said Brown.

came in, lifted the dog's tail and went away looking puzzled.

Eventually Blair and Brown could stand it no longer and called the
barman over.

"Tell me" said Blair, "why did all those old shepherds come in and
look under the dog's tail like that? Is it an old custom?"

"Good Lord no," said the barman. "Its just that someone has told
them that there was a Labrador in this bar with two ars*holes".
