Superb line

Gordon Brown's premiership has become the Trabant of British politics: we had to wait 10 years for delivery, then it fell apart after less than six months.
It gets better:
Trabants, you will recall, were the rattle-trap motor vehicles produced by East Germany's control-freak regime. According to Time magazine, they were "constructed of recycled worthlessness". Does that sound familiar?

An enthusiasts' website says Trabants "soon became outdated" and "everyone had a joke" about them. Like Brown, the Trabant "was the epitome of socialism: bad, not capable of doing too many things, not too efficient..."
