Separated At Birth?

Reader Samantha writes:

I wonder if anyone else has spotted a similarity between Soo, the panda girlfriend of popular glove puppet Sooty, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Alastair Darling? Are they by any chance related?

'The Bank of England has a critical role in protecting stability'

'Izzy wizzy, let's get busy!'

Update: I see Soo won the Weakest Link - Puppet Special this Saturday, pipping Roland Rat to £11,500 for charity. And only two days after local mosaicist Martin Cheek became a winner on the same programme. Well, not the puppet version, the normal version. Sadly all the Chancellor seems to do these days is go home with nothing.

How about a poll on the fuel costs due to fiscal incompetence. Diesel at £1.50 a litre in september anyone. I predicted to a friend that Diesel would hit £1.20 in April of this year and that was back in August of last year?

At the rate we are going anyone with a fire place boarded up will rightly think about getting it checked out for re-use. I can see the coal deliveries starting up again.

We have a massive fuel problem that is not being resolved in this country - get ready for the lights out if we have a long cold spell this year. Great got that off me chest, thank god for blog sites.

The similarity is striking - even more so when you realise that the chancellor also has a hand up him - Gordon's.

Annon 10:20 a poll on fuel costs due to fiscal incompetance aimed at who ?

Thatcher for closing the mines, big business obstructing green energy sources, international capitalists causing a credit crunch forcing investors into fuel commodity markets. Please be more specific.

you appear to be saying more people should have kept digging this up and I agree the damage Maggie did

Perhaps through your trades union links you could ask the Tower Colliery buy out boys if they could send a sidecar full of coal round to anon 10 20 ? He seems to now see a need for it after all.

As for get ready for the lights out. We will need diesel for the unbreliable backup emergency generators. Bit of of a vicious circle developing here.

And on the subject of unreliable back up power

you know what hoss he's riding in on

I know. Those nice Polish people could come over and re-open our mines.

I tried having a word with Harry Corbett, to see how he feels about this but all I could get out of him was "Bye bye everybody, bye bye"!
His late uncle, Harry Ramsden, was a little more forthcoming with "Everyone has had their chips", though.
