Embedded text or transcriptNo. 56: As, a mere mile away, The Commons botches the long overdue Culling of
the Lords, within ye tranquil pulieus of Tate Britain yer ever 'umble servant admires the
centrepiece of their new show of Fr. & Br. 19th C. Paintings (an' their influence
on each other an' all) - that being a full size copy of M. Gericault's celebrated "The Raft
of the Medusa", always a hot fave for nicking by cartoonists as we go about our viled trade
- and I have a moment of Blinding Revelation that the painting is actually a documentary
depiction, avant la lettre, of the Transport Facilities provided by Presiding Chirac to get
vice-president Tony back from Le Touqut in time to vote for botching the Nobs (see above)!
- Beyonf cultured liggers hovver us Sir Nick's Arotter's free booze and fleeing peers are
