Marx Brothers (and Sisters)
It's probably fair to make the generalisation that many of the Labour front bench have been Marxists in their student days in the 60s and 70s. But it's now undeniable that Brown's government has descended into the sort of farce that Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Zeppo and Gummo would have relished.
Alistair Darling just needs paint on that moustache to match his wondrous eyebrows; (a younger) Gordon Brown already scarily closely resembles Chico (top), David Milliband just needs the curly blond wig. Zeppo (bottom) could easily pass for David Cameron, which is a bit unnerving.
TMP leaves its fans to look up Gummo and decide if he might make a suitable Gorbals "Air Miles" Mick-alike. If the Tories had a sense of humour, one of them would sneak a motor horn into the chamber for the next time David Milliband stands up to speak.
