Gordon Brown faces yet another Downfall!!!

Just what is it with 'Downfall'? It has been adapted to poke fun of the politics of the US, Britain, and New Zealand. What about Australia? I am sure Kevin Rudd would make a lovely Adolf! It's those glasses, you see.

Anyway, Iain Dale has posted a new version of Downfall to account for the deepening economic crisis facing Britain and Gordon Brown's tax raising mini-budget.

If that has whetted your appetite for more of the Scottish Fuhrer, here's the other downfall he faced a few months back, when he was 20% or so behind in the polls, which seems to be where he is heading now.

There seem to be others too, such as a movie trailer, which I am sure would be well worth a reworking to feature the dying days of Helen Elizabeth Clark!



Why am I posting so much UK politics at the moment? Is it because I am heading back there? Or is it because there seems to be stuff all happening in New Zealand at the moment.

Just what sort of a country am I returning to!!???

Nothing quite like abuse perpetrated by the State. Heads up.

What is it about Downfall?

1. English-speakers tend to be monolingual, so the soundtrack makes no sense to them. If you speak German, every single one of these Downfall clips has been completely pointless and stupid.

2. For some reason, the Brits find WW2 hilarious. It's one of their least attractive national traits - not to mention stupid, given they lost.
