Let the bloodletting begin…
The only paper still unswervingly loyal to the Prime Mentalist is The Mirror. This morning the paper’s Old School Labour hack, Paul Routledge, rants
BBC presenter Andrew Marr was out of order, demanding to know, on live TV, whether the Prime Minister is taking anti-depressants – merely on the basis of unsubstantiated internet gossip that had been officially denied.
He has refused to apologise. He should think again – or some scandalmonger might start spreading rumours about his interesting private life, which he guards with the tenacity of a Staffordshire bull terrier.
Too late Routledge, that scandal was mongered yonks ago…

A month after Gordon Brown appeared at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (on the day Eric Joyce resigned) he was followed yesterday by General Stanley McChrystal, the US commander in Afghanistan.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).
Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.
