Alistair Darling on the Brownies…

“It would be wrong to claim that there was a plot to get rid of Tony Blair; there was no plot. A plot is secret. This was an open campaign, and as far as the Brownite cabal were concerned, you were with them or against them. It was a fairly brutal regime, and many of us fell foul of it.”

    So all the denials of the Brownites such as little Miliband and the Balls household were just lies and more lies. And what jobs do these disreputable people have now?

      Um, where is the infighting that “Ed isn’t strong enough to deal with?” The infightning was between Brownites and Blairites exclusively, the latter of which are no longer even represented in the Commons anymore.

    Still blaming the bankers.

    Not a peep about the idiots who borrowed more than they could repay and defaulted on the debts.

    Not a peep about his debt and spending addiction.

    Marr does the usual biased bbc and doesn’t ask the obvious.

    Why should we pay more and more for less and less from the government?

    Why should children be born into debt because Darling couldn’t stop spending?

      Is there anything about why Darling suddenly decided after 25 years or so to resign from the Faculty of Advocates?

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
