The families of British servicemen killed in Iraq are launching a new political party. They plan to run candidates against Labour MPs who voted for the war, in as many local elections as possible. Their message is simple: The bastards lied to us, we proved they lied to us, we want them out.
Which is all very admirable, but unfortunately they’ve decided to call the party Spectre, which is making it a bit hard for me to take them seriously. I haven’t seen any photos of Reg Keys sitting in a revolving chair petting a fluffy white cat, but I’m sure Photoshop artists are working on it even as I type this.
Perhaps they could consider renaming the party to, say, Smersh. Or The Alan Parsons Project. Or Preparation-H.
