Government as Dad's Army?

Alistar Darling's interview earlier this week telling us that economic prospects are the worst for 60years put me in mind of Private Fraser, the Scot in Dad's Army who was forever rushing around warning his colleages "we're doomed, doomed I tell you". So does that make Gordon Brown to be Captain Mannering? .....and Ed Balls or should that be David Milliband as Private Pike?.... and who should be cast as Corporal Jones, "Don't panic"??
Update Sunday 14 September: It seems I'm not the only person to have noticed this connection. A correspondent has drawn my attention to this posting on the Labourhome website!
