Best CAMRA/Libya Comparison Of The Week

Customer 1: “What about that no fly zone in Libya, eh? That’ll stop that bastard Gaddafi bombing his own lot!”

Customer 2: Yeah, talk about an iron fist. He’ll do anything to stay in power.”

Customer 1: “Bit like John Clarke*.”

*JC is the chairman of Stockport & South Manchester CAMRA. Any analogy is, of course, completely spurious as he has never, to the best of my knowledge, ordered the Stockport Air Force to open fire on dissenting CAMRA members. Or has he...?.

Well, not yet I haven't....

Like the idea of being "in power" - kind of implies a huge amount of authority and influence. Shame no-one's told the rest of the branch. Sigh.

Must say I've been tempted to vacate the role of chairman and become President for Life but somehow I can't seem to persuade anyone else of the merits of this very sensible move.
