Carry on Labour

Have you seen that one? It’s one of my favourite Carry On movies. It’s the one starring that rather dour, but really quite funny, Scottish actor, Gordon Brown. He plays the Labour leader and Prime Minister. He is absolutely terrible. He gets into all kinds of trouble culminating in the incident where the party calls a snap by-election in a must win safe seat when they don’t even have a candidate. It’s hilarious. Who comes up with those stories?

In the end they grab some MSP called Margaret Curran who has no clue what’s going on pretty much like Brown.  It ends on a cliff hanger.
