"..a bardy view!"

Blackadder and the Budget (Blues) Brothers…

The long awaited and well speculated budget has arrived from the UK's Chancellor Darling. 

Everytime I hear his name I automatically think of Blackadder IV.

"Get your arse over here Darling!" was the regular mantra of Blackadder's Commanding Officer General Melchett, to his unfortunate Aide-de-camp Captain Darling.

The furtive, bureaucratic  and sly secretary who always hoped that Edmund would get his comeuppance, yet always ended the worse off. Blackadder32G

But back to the current Darling. The man who shaved off his beard to present a clean cut image to the electorate.(He obviously listened to Baldrick's mother's advice! – If you don't view the clip, you won't know what I'm talking about!)

I wonder if his boss – PM Gordon Brown  – treats him like Melchet? It's a humorous notion.

Blundering Brown and Dastardly Darling – one of the worst comedy duo's this side of Horne and Corden!

Unfortunately the laughs are in short supply. In fact they're dire. If they went on Britain's Got Talent I would relish Simon Cowells appraisals:

"You're not very good at this are you?

And what's your day job?

Prime Minister and Chancellor? And of which unfortunate country is that? The UK you say?"

(Audience rolls around hysterically).

"Now that's the funniest thing you've said tonight! What do you say Piers?

"This is the biggest NO I've ever had the pleasure to give – absolute garbage!"

"And what about you Amanda?"

"Oh you've brought tears to my eyes, of sorrow. I'm sorry chaps, but your act is rubbish!"

"That settles it then" says Simon, "it's a NO from me too! Come back next year and maybe we can have some real belly laughs! You are the weakest link – Goodbye!" (Oops! wrong show).

Back stage Ant and Dec comforts the two sorry losers.

"Divn't worry lads! Take nay nhawtice o' that audioonce! They divn't knaw wot tha' talkin aboot man! After all, they're only the electaroote. Since when did they matta?"

Suddenly Baldrick appears "Hey! Have you two nicked my turnips?"
