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?

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”



Rob Wilson says:

Without Predujice

Darling

What time will dinner be ready this evening?

Yours
