British Telecom, first launched in the eighties, hit a rock and sank three years ago, and has been festering and rotting at the bottom of the sea ever since. Many at the time put the catastrophe down to poor piloting of the vessel. Now at last the government is attempting to bring it up for air, in the largest investment salvage operation this country has ever seen. They are planning to use a scheme recently trialled with the post office sell-off, which involves attaching enormous bags full of money to the flanks and hoping that it will attract investment bankers who are circling nearby.
Goverment attempts to re-float the wreck of British Telecom

Great work, but needs a little more material
Would also work for the LibDems
Bugger, you're right, re-floating the LibDems would have been funnier.
It sank, of course, after sailing too close to Tory policy, but they could have used Cable to lash enormous windbags to the rotting hulk in a futile attempt to get it back on an even keel in time for 2015.
