Spot the flying pig

David Cameron is obviously not a Pink Floyd fan. If he was, he'd know that Battersea Power Station is the venue for the cover of their "Animals" album which features a famously flying pig.

The pig still flies - went to a Roger Waters concert two or three years ago where it hovered over the audience as he sang:

Big man, pig man, ha ha charade you are.
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha charade you are.
And when your hand is on your heart,
You're nearly a good laugh,
Almost a joker,

As they say, "The end of another day. All objectives met. All quotas achieved. All reports in. All customers happy and satisfied. All staff eager and enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly."

Hi Nigel - there's probably another message from the lyrics of Sheep, which hopefully would sink in with anyone thinking of voting Labour again: -

What do you get for pretending the danger's not real
Meek and obedient, you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors, into the valley of steel
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes
Now things are really what they seem
No, this is no bad dream

(Of course, applying lyrics to politics may be a dangerous game...)
