I just had to blog this as I couldn’t stop laughing. 

This is an old wartime moral boosting poster (which wasn’t actually ever put into production in the 1940’s – a proof was found in a box of books in a second hand shop in Alnwick).  We’ve been seeing it a lot with the present economic crisis.

Anyway here it is….

And looking through blogs tonight I saw this……  it tickled me 🙂

Great timing with the government crisis here in the UK tonight.

    helen – you are a great Pugin fan like me – I seem to remeber ages back you bought the books of Pugin's designs – i have been looking at them on amazon – are they worth having? – by the way have you ever been to Pugin's church in Cheadle as I remember you are from St Helens when you came down last year – I taught in St helens at Rainhill and we live in Warrington
