UK Politics

I must admit I am not a very clever man but I have always got by.

The current political system in the UK is in terrible disarray. I don't understand what is happening.

I like to use analogies to explain things.

Here is my best stab at UK politics.


  1. For those that don't get my thinking consider the bricklayer as me, the bricks are the political parties and the bucket is the political system. I'm not sure where the rope fits in.

  2. Oh just be sensible and vote leave like the rest of us.

  3. The corries song...there´s a Video called the Schadensmeldung (accident Report) and about a roofer who does the same trick as the bricklayer . Apparently the joke Comes from a german who went to live in the UK in the 40´s/50´s and invented the joke as part of his act and went back to germany.The vids in german but well funny to watch any way

    1. My information is a bit different:

      Pat Cooksey. sometimes referred to as ''Why Paddy's Not At Work Today''

      Over a long number of years there has been much speculation concerning this song. I wrote this song under it's original title Paddy and the Barrell in 1969, and first performed it in The Dyers Arms in Coventry at this time, and in 1972 Sean Cannon, later to become a member of the Dubliners began to perform it in the folk clubs under the title The Sick Note.

      The song was based on Gerard Hoffnung's wonderful address to the Oxford Union, but the story in a more simple form dates back to the English music halls in the 1920's and appeared in the Readers Digest in 1937.
