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?

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
