At times of economic turmoil we always hear our elders say “it wouldn’t have happened in our time”. This got me thinking. What if science had advanced a little quicker and we had moved beyond cloning Dolly the Sheep?
Imagine the possibilities. When the last election was stalling and the nation was dismayed at the thought of a coalition government The Cobra Task Force could have nipped down to the bunker under Downing Street, pressed “thaw” on the cryogenic freezer and brought back our greatest ever leader, Winston Churchill.
A quick debrief of our failing society and Europe’s economic free falling debt crisis, one fresh Cuban cigar and an Oliver Twist Gin and Tonic later its off to meet the press. Stand aside Mr Cameron, Churchill is back and moral boosting speeches are his game.
Stood on the steps of Number 10 gazing out into the waiting press our hero delivers his greatest speech since D-Day.
“Dear Nation of Britain, I have myself, full confidence, that we shall prove ourselves able to deliver our tiny island from the tyranny of Brussels.
Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of Debt, once again our people are being asked to prop up the economy of Europe. At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do.
We all know duty must be paid on spirits, we all know that all manner of tax must be paid. Let us pay it on a traditional English product. One that we all enjoy, one that we can all share with our friends and fellow Britons throughout the Empire, one that declares our love for our great nation. We shall drink Oliver Twist London Distilled Gin with growing confidence and growing strength in the air; we shall rescue our Island, whatever the cost may be.
The leaders of France and Germany will once again be in awe of our Bulldog spirit that will help lead England, Scotland and Wales out of the financial doldrums whilst bringing a smile to our dear nations face.
Join with me and raise a toast, for we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, we can stand proud that we all stood together; For Gin and Country!”
The camera flashes erupt amongst a rapturous applause, Union Jack flags can be seen waiving furiously amongst the cheering crowd as Winston Churchill our dear great leader once again stands on the steps of Number 10 Downing Street, two fingers raised in a victory salute as he sips on an O.T.T.
The Gin Maestro.
