This landed in Ben's inbox:

A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway. Nothing is moving. Suddenly a man knocks on the window.

The driver rolls down his window and asks, 'What's going on?'

'Terrorists down the road have kidnapped Gordon Brown, Alistair Darling, David Miliband and Jack Straw.

They're asking for a £10 million ransom.

Otherwise they're going to douse them with petrol and set them on fire.

We're going from car to car, taking up a collection.'

The driver asks, 'How much is everyone giving, on average?'

'Most people are giving about a gallon.'

This is very sexist! What about Jacqui Smith, Hattie Harman, Ruth Kelly and Mrs Balls?

What about them? Somebody must stay behind to keep the Great Leader's project on track.

I am not Gay Gordon. I am not Grumpy Gordon. I am not Flash. I am Just Gordon.

You lucky people!

Now then, Polly! To paraphrase Robert Conquest,

“You cannot, when dealing with Toynbee,
Just pay her back in her own coin be-
Cause talking such piss
Would come rather amiss:
So how would a kick in the groin be?”

[Not that we would dream of perpetrating such yobbish behaviour towards a lady, even such a grossly overpaid one.]
