I wonder how many people realised that Gordon Brown was borrowing from the inaugural address of another President, Abraham Lincoln?"
"I am loth to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."
The reality of Brown's Britain, sadly, is nearer to Orwell than Lincoln:
"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'
Anyway, we can have some fun with the puns and you can add a few of your own if you like?
“Follow the Gord”
“A new day has (Gor)dawned for the Labour Party”
“Gord help us now”
“He’s become a Gord”
“From left of centre to strangely Brown”
And just in case you have forgotten George Orwell and 1984, remember what our education system once looked like but:
"In Oceania at the present day, Science, in the old sense, has almost ceased to exist. In Newspeak there is no word for 'Science.' The empirical method of thought, on which all the scientific achievements of the past were founded, is opposed to the most fundamental principles of Ingsoc."
