    I have, in that light, taken the first step during the last couple of months and registered a party, for which I have this year been actively recruiting candidates to stand at the next General Election. We - the party, that is - are discussing a constitution and drawing up a policy document.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Now then!! This sounds interesting, Spot. Have you got a name/manifesto yet? We could certainly do with a change, that's for sure. I for one,am utterly despondent about the UK's 'see-saw', corrupt, ineffective governance for the last 30 odd years!

    I must confess, I'm bursting with curiosity now you've said that!

    You do realise, I hope, that now you've said this, you'll have to keep us informed of progress! Good luck with the 'dirty tricks' department the major parties employ, not to mention gerrymandered boundaries and the 'first-past-the-post' dis-enfranchisement electoral system they use to stop nascent parties from attaining Parliamentary representation, though I'm absolutely certain you know all about that!

    I mean it, jolly good luck to you!!

    The Manifesto is a work in progress, but I appear to have inadvertently created the designation Leader of The Common People. That's what appears on the record anyway.

    I also seem to have taken to splitting infinitives.

    I would presume that you are a socialist/related party? With common-sense, compassionate, people-oriented policies being worked on? One thing we don't need is something extreme, as we've got plenty of those nut-jobs anyway! They invariably make a bad situation worse,IMO.

    I would hasten to add that I make no such allegations against you or your party, as I know next to nothing about it.

    Come on Spot, cheer me up with some hopeful news!

    We are middle-of-the-road Socialists, which is more than can be said for any other mainstream political party in England.

    Our first Party Conference is in three months, Comrade. We expect fraternal greetings from what few remnants of Socialism may still exist in scattered pockets around the world. We also expect to be totally ignored by the capitalist running-dog media organizations which dictate what passes for news these days.

    Isn't the correct term Brother ?
