Bill and Ted had the right solution

Perhaps unintentionally, Chris Thornton and Brian Walker’s metaphor, Parties engaged ‘in game of chess’, conjures up images of the disillusioned Crusader stalling for time by playing chess against the figure of Death in The Seventh Seal. This time, however, the stalling is for a lesser prize than the director Ingmar Bergman had in mind – an electoral advantage next May against parties not allowed at the board. Hmm.. time the two Governments updated that image and introduced a “Bill and Ted”-style wedgie – better make it a double.
