Smile,

even though it’s breaking.

The below: “It’s YOUR PARTY now, Gordon”

  • Donor-by-proxy
  • Scottish Labour leadership breaking donor rules too
  • Welsh high-placed “forgetfulness” in leadership expenses
  • Questions about a David Abrahams’ planning application
  • Unpopular Capital Gains Tax proposals
  • Missing data information on almost half the UK population
  • Northern Rock fiasco
  • Personal criticism of Brown from military chiefs
  • All on top of the ‘General Election That Never Was’
  • And now the Conservative party is ‘way ahead in the Opinion Polls

(Gordon Brown’s honeymoon was short indeed.)

But he still has something to smile about! Tony Blair may yet face further questioning in the new police investigation which is now underway.

At last week’s PMQs, the acting Liberal Democrat leader pierced the present PM right where it hurts – in his pride.

“From Stalin to Mr Bean in a matter of weeks”

Almost a two word answer!

“I’ve got no comment on that, thank you” said Cherie in September this year, when asked a difficult question or two about Brown. Her answer might be even shorter today!



“SMILE” Lyrics

First recorded by Nat King Cole in 1955

Lyrics by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons

Music written by Charlie Chaplin for his 1936 silent movie classic, Modern Times

Smile though your heart is aching;
Smile even though it’s breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow,
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
That’s the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.

Instrumental Interlude

That’s the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile.
