Just the tonic for a wet summer's day in Nu Labour Britain
A major recession looming. Spiralling food and petrol prices. A government and opposition both in the pockets of big business. Murders and stabbings every day. Neo-crazies gunning for war with Iran. And on top of all that, it's been raining all day.
For any British readers feeling a bit fed up after the wettest day since Noah built his Ark, (and for non-British readers who may be feeling fed up too), here's the perfect tonic: the wonderful Esther Ofarim singing 'Mad about the Boy', from a 1970 Morecambe and Wise Show.
Enjoy, and remember, the darkest hour is just before dawn.
