Tonight David Cameron was enveloped in a growing storm as it emegerged that large sections of his Conference speech were borrowed from cartoon character President Kang, the evil Alien overlord of the Simpsons. Whole passages and workds are lifted from Kangs nomination speech, widely credited with giving him victory against Alien Rival Kodos.
Spot the Difference:
CAMERON “As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball, but tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.”
KANG FROM THE SIMPSONS ” no lurch to the right, no lurch to the left. There’s only one direction for me and that’s forward to the future..”
CAMERON “The politics of failure have failed. We need to make them work again.”
KANG FROM THE SIMPSONS “we live in a new world and that the old politics isn’t working.”
