      ‘Guido *****s the new Jaguar.’

      ‘Here’s a West Indian favourite, **** and ****.’

      I guess if you believe in dual quantum states like your name suggests you can be both infront of and behind him at the same time?

        Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
        So do our minutes hasten to their end;
        Each changing place with that which goes before,
        In sequent toil all forwards do contend.

    So now we know! - I suppose thye could 'of' called him 'colourful'! says:

    Twice elected Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone has a long and often controversial background in politics. Well known beyond the reaches of London, Livingstone has a reputation as an outspoken, independent and often combative figure.

      Well I’m not sure I’m allowed to say on a blog what I think about THAT man.

      But maybe this is as far as one can go in the written word

      “generously funded himself and his cronies, leading an exotic and expensive lifestyle, from hardworking taxpayers whilst mayor of london”

    You’re not an mp earning a full-time taxpayer funded, over generous salary, gold-plated pension and easily inflated, unjustifiable & unchallenged expenses for a part-time job you know!!!

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.”

The British media are Hunts says:

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