Divas

The Observer compares some stats on John Major's government of 1992 with Gordon Brown's of 2008 - price of bread, price of milk, house prices, etc.

1992's best selling single was Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You; 2008's, so far, is Leona Lewis, Bleeding Love. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

So you want the taxpayer to fund such things?
