Credit crunch brings us back

With some sense of sadness, Statler and I have been forced to return from our 18 month cruise prematurely. Unfortunately our financial advisors, working under our policy, seem to have invested in some cheap bank shares.

Northern Rock wasn't the way to go. At least they weren't that bloody stupid to deposit large sums in Icelandic banks!

With some sense of embarrassment, we were frogmarched from our breakfast 10 days ago. Apparently our credit card was bouncing. We were outrageously put into one of the emergency dinghys and pushed off into the ocean.

Wet and weary we are now back in Britain.

In our absence it seems some young whippersnappers have had the audacity to trespass on our weblogging activity in Barnet and all sorts have been happening. As a welcome back we have recorded a little video for you below.


  1. Gentlemen

    May I be the first to welcome you back! A lot has changed since you were last on these shores. Nearly £28 million has gone A.W.O.L. in Iceland, £4 million overspent on a bridge over troubled Hendon, and £1.4 million blown on some near obsolete lap top computers.

    Reportedly, £1m has been spent on the Underhill investigation. Apparently that’s all my fault under the Government Department for Barnet’s new policy of shooting the messenger.

    Anyway, I trust that your normal service will now resume. Hope you can keep up with the competition!

  2. Let me be the second to welcome you back. I am having a charity auction for my "The Buck stops here" desk sign. It seems from various postings that some high ranking council officials think "Don't call me Dave" should get it. Apparently everything is his fault.

  3. Waldorf and I have just finished watching Countdown. You will be happy to hear that Waldorf worked out the conundrum today.

    It is good to see that you have followed our humble example. Let's see if we can keep this dreadful technocracy in check.
