We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Is your horse red in the fetlocks?

A missive or epistle from J.Arthur Blenkenstein, our esteemed Chief Executive. He thanks the poor huddled masses for their sterling work and cheery fizzogs and tells us the latest on the state of the local economy now that your man Pickles has wielded the axe. The good news is that the council's finances really are up shit creek and they're not just saying it.

The bad news is Executive Directorate have put together a Strategy For Growth.

The rest of this afternoon looks set for a discussion on the manner of tumours, hairy moles and sundry polyps.

"Strategy For Growth", hmm. Nobody likes the word "austerity" any more, do they, but I still think it has a role to play.

Oh, don't you worry, Gadjo, we have austerity pegged all right. And this time next year we'll be sending groundnuts to Tanganiyka.

This strategy for growth idea, it's not got anything to do with fertiliser and regulare watering has it?

But it says on Mr Pickles' web page that he's "committed to improving local services..." I think you should follow him on Twitter until this misundertanding is cleared up!

Happy Frog and You: there is a degree of the recycling of animal wastes involved in it.

Macy: I do, it's a treat. A mindfuck a minute.
