Can't resist this

The good news is that I am working on setting up a parallel blog that will deal with all the subjects that are only tenuously related to the main themes of EUReferendum. When that happens all my postings here will be EU related. How lucky can you be!

In the meantime, I have to diverge from the main theme from time to time. Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit has, for some time, been using the words "the country is in the very best of hands" as a kind of refrain. I was going to plagiarize it for the postings about our own bunch of bozos, whether in London or Brussels. Luckily we have just been reminded both by Instapundit and Powerline that we are all plagiarizing or quoting the late great Johnny Mercer from a less well known musical "Li'l Abner".
The Treasury says the national debt is climbing to the sky
And government expenditures have never been so high.
It makes a feller get a gleam of pride within his eye,
to see how our economy expands,
The country's in the very best of hands...
