What to post today after an inconclusive general election and during a weekend of horse trading? Time to rifle through the album collection!
There are so many contenders and my initial reaction was to post I Cry and Sing the Blues by Buddy Guy. Perhaps not, but if it’s got to Buddy Guy with a more positive spin how about My Time After Awhile? Appropriate yes but why would I (how could I) put a positive spin on the election? The most votes and greatest number of seats went to the Conservative Party and I am not certain that regulating the financial sector to prevent another melt down of the economy is going to be the first act of a party bankrolled by … er the financial sector.
Whatever the result of this weekend’s deal making it looks like Gordon Brown’s days in Downing Street are numbered. So how about The Secret to a Long Life (Is Knowing When It’s Time to Go), I’m Sorry For You My Friend, or more unkindly, Shallow Brown?
After the Liberal Democrat’s disappointing poll, squeezed by Labour and the Conservatives, I couldn’t really dedicate The Time Has Come to the party or The Real Deal to Nick Clegg it’s leader, could I?.
So, it has to be that Cajun classic Cameron Two-Step by Barro with the Teardrops. Never heard of them? Well the sleeve notes tell us that the “Cameron Two-Step was a custom recording and no information is available on this band”. Strangely appropriate!
