Treasurership Down

King Canute is standing there in his best raincoat and wellingtons, waiting for the rivers of gold to come pouring down the dry creek bed, and all that comes round the corner is a rusty tin can, rolling slightly in the breeze.

Meanwhile over at Tim Blair's blog, correspondent The Old and Unimproved Dave has suggested that Wayne Swan's Treasurership is going to end in a massive chase scene like The Benny Hill Show.

I can never resist an old TV rerun reference, so picture if you will a frantic Swan chasing a group of mining magnates through a park at high speed, tearing off their clothes and trying to empty their pockets at the same time.

Cue that unmistakeable music ...

Oh, THAT Scene from 'Downfall'!

I suppose this is what Christopher Pyne was talking about ...


Update: Gillard has addressed 'a shattered caucus' today and accused them of leaking information to journalists, one of whom has leaked it right back. Kevin Rudd was absent.
 
Read all about it; I am dying to see the Hitler meme for this one, although this one at the Cat is spot-on.

Here's Mr Squiggle

Thank you to Andrew for this lovely job suggestion for Julia Gillard, completely in spirit with the old TV re-runs approach to public policy-making that has been such a feature of this government.
