The Monty Python guide to aid and development

June 28, 2013

     By Duncan Green     

Yesterday I idly tweeted a request for the Monty Python sketches most relevant to development. Great response, uncovering some forgotten gems – turns out Python fans are everywhere, (and they’re not even all men, well not 100% anyway). Too many for one post, so today we’ll do politics. Here are my favourites (with credits where due):

Good governance and accountability (aka anarcho sindicalist v monarchist discourses) [via Emily Barker and others]

Colonial legacy and institutions [aka what have the Romans ever done for us?, via Matt Collin]

Wellbeing v growth (the Yorkshire version)

And, of course, that essential guide to coalition building, the People’s Front of Judea [via Owen Barder and several others]

For more happy browsing, (not in work hours of course) check out the Python clip website. And of course, if I’ve missed any, please let us know.
