Brigadier Lumley launched a surprise assault on Westminster today just 24 hours after some sort of ceasefire had been negotiated.

With military-like precision, and cat-like speed, she separated the opposition forces. General Brown was lucky to evade the Gurkha advancement, but Lieutenant Phil Woolas was outflanked and left behind enemy lines without any support in site.

He had no other option than to enter into a further round of humiliating surrender talks – a meeting held in front of the BBC no less. He was then frog-marched by Brigadier Lumley and her troops to the assembled Westminister Press where she explained in no uncertain terms what she would be doing. If  I understand her correctly – and Mr Woolas certainly did not contradict her at any point (not that he was in any position to as he was “kebab-ed” between “the Brig” and one of her commanders) – SHE is now writing the policy on the Gurkhas immigration claims.

It would seem that Nick might be too late to offer Ms Lumley a seat on the Lib Dem Lords benches. She is already running the country.

Another day when the media was awash with Lib Dem sound bites. Good job.

Not sure if the West Indes Cricket team or the UK Government were the more humiliated today.

Given how much Nick Clegg has been in the media spotlight over the last few weeks (looking and sounding like a man with real passion and conviction)..if he does not nominate Joanna Lumley to join the Lib Dem benches in the Lords at the next opportunity I will eat my hat.

I punched the air when I saw the impromptu photo op outside St. Stephen’s gate after the Ghurkas victory. Am I the only one who hopes this signals Nick Clegg’s future coalition strategy…?


…because in the event of a hung Parliament, I’m well up for a coalition with Joanna Lumley.
