Call ‘em the Blues Brothers?
Blog Guy, I keep reading political stories from England that talk about a “shadow government.” As I understand it, this is sort of an opposition party team in the wings?
Yes, but it’s very sensitive stuff. For security reasons, these politicians can only be photographed in dark shadows and murky blue lighting.
You mean like the Smurfs?
Sort of, now that you mention it. The “shadow government” is super-secret, known only to a few of us. The members are terrified of being revealed, hence the Draconian photo precautions you see here in my blog.
But can’t people just find out who they are by reading your captions down below?
D’oh! Excuse me for just a moment, please…
