Where is the love?

Part I Foreign Policy Centre director Mark Leonard says: “Pro-Europeans cannot afford to let the constitution vote become a referendum on Blair. Two thirds of the public are ready to be swayed but a campaign focusing on the prime minister will lose as many votes as it will gain.” Translation: “Everybody hates Blair and he’s a bloody liability”. I fear the propellor-hat is coming off this wonk, and I don’t think Lord Levy will be pleased with the young Mark, author of “Why Europe will run the 21st Century” [Look in the fiction dept.]

Part II Shagger Norris on Howard’s summer policy blitz “Some of them have hit the spot, most of them have been perfectly sensible but fewer if any have caught the public imagination.” Translation: “I nearly won against Ken. Howard hasn’t a hope at this rate.”

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
