THE HITCH HIKER'S GUIDE TO THE LABOUR PARTY

New labour old Vogon!

It's just come to me who Gordon Brown reminds me of, he bears a striking resemblance to the Vogon commander. I'm just so glad I've never had to listen to his poetry, his policies are bad enough.

The Vogons are a race characterised of their love of petty rules and regulations (is this ringing any bells yet). They're not very bright and they blunder on regardless of objections (clang clang) until some higher power (the EU perhaps) tells them regulation xxx.123 subsection zzz.1289 overrides any rule they wish to enforce.

The Vogons also act as the inter galactic police force (clang clang) bringing rogue planets into line and catching rule breakers.



Who would you cast as Marvin the paranoid android, I vote for Darling.

..ah yes the plans have been available in Alpha Centauri for a thousand years ....

No coincidence this, the series was conceived at the end of the 70s at the worst moment in our prvious obsession with ordering eachother around , Arthur`s whole journey starts with a battle with a ridiculous bureaucracy and in many ways is all about the arbitariness of socialists at local level especially .

I `m afraid your 'spot' is closer to the literal truth than you think. the Vogons were based on Old Labour and Brown is the spiritual heir

I think you have hit the nail on the head with this one.

He is more like Shrek!

He may physically resemble Shrek - and share some of his personal nasal habits. But in personality and inclination...

Vogon all the way.

Look on You Tube at the Vogon poetry reading scene. The Vogon commander is the absolute spit of Gordy.

Maybe in the eyebrowns and the expression?
