Caliban Farage

And so today Steve Bell has Nigel Farage (and his Horseless Carriage) quoting Caliban from the Tempest while drowning Cameron in a duck pond:-
Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again.
(The Tempest Act III, Sc ii).

Just thought it worth a mention. It is quite funny.
