Brian Pigeon Election Special

This happened last week.

The whole of London was going mental over the election, so we thought we’d join in. Seeing as the state of things seemed to be pretty much all over the place, why not give it a shot? A pigeon for Prime Minister. How about it? No-one would notice.

There are several reasons why, in some ways, we might be more qualified.

Here are five of them:

  1. We are very organised and turn up on time if we have to.
  2. We know what we think and stick to it, especially when it comes to food.
  3. We pride ourselves in our appearance, well most of us anyway.
  4. We look great on TV.
  5. We are always aware of a microphone.

Loads of reasons, really, so we thought we’d give it a go. Strike while the iron’s hot and everyone is confused.

Eddy, Mike, Ron and a couple of others got on the ledge outside We Will Rock You.

Talk about a statement backdrop:

All a bit of a let down in the end though. No-one was listening, then again they weren’t really saying anything of interest, until they started singing We Will Rock You that is.

Fucking genius:

Mike, left, took the lead. Even managed to source a hair piece.

I told them they should go on Britain’s Got Talent and that they were better than the performing dog, or any of the performing dogs come to that.

Crowds started to gather on the roof of a nearby key cutter:


However, great moment though it was, the whole performance kind of missed the delivery of a clear electoral message.

Or did it?

‘We will rock you’ got me thinking. I reckon the message is brilliantly clear. Clearer than any I’ve heard so far and, more to the point, we’ve got a song.

I wonder if Clegg might have got more votes with a song? Or a dance routine? Or a coin based magic trick, perhaps?

Anyway, it’ll be ages before they all get their shit together, so there’s still time. Best get working on a manifesto.

In the meantime, everyone out there get singing We Will Rock You at every given opportunity. In shops, in the streets, in meetings. Get the word out. Additional ‘We will’ at the beginning is optional.

Thank you.

    A pigeon for prime minister, wonderful idea! I think you should stand for it, you are already famous, got yourself in newspapers, I bet people (and pigeons) ask you for your autograph on the street… Go for it!
    Not related, but I’m curious, what do you pigeons think of coons? I think they are peculiar birds…

    What? You mean… you mean, Gordon Brown ISN’T a pigeon???

    I like how the guy in the foreground is contemplating what you guys were saying…. you must have been truly inspirational up there… what does bother me is that it looks like some of your fellow Pigeons were crapping all over your backdrop… if you had gotten into power I would like to think that you would have done something along the lines of disciplinary procedures for that…

    I think that I speak for others when I say that perhaps one day there will be a show about you too. With a big gold pigeon and a microphone…. little steps huh?

    RoooRoooo: I thought about it – go for PM. Just not sure the state of the economy isn’t a poison chalice?
    Your pal

    absurdoldbird: Only in his dreams. Kid you not.
    Your pal

    Sean: Love the idea if a musical based on the pigeon, and a huge gold one at that. Also, rest assured, if I got into power, I’d launch strict guidelines around the act of shitting on statues and the like.
    Your pal

    Of course I meant coot, not coon……..
