    He should be thanking the previous Labour Government for making him popular.

    Yes the labour supporter will be pointing out that after 2.5 years we are still blaming Labour.

    For the next 30 years the events from 1997 > 2010 wil be scrutinised over & over again.

    How many languages should this comment be printed in?

    You couldn’t hold Vaz in contempt. He’d slip out of your hands.

        There is actually a marine creature, the hagfish or slime eel which appears to belong to a branch of the same evolutionary line that led to Vaz as a terrestrial dweller. Like Vaz the hagfish when threatened can produce copius amounts of slime for which humanity has yet to find a useful purpose.

    Like when Mae West smart-mouthed a judge, at a hearing to determine whether her play “Sex” would be shut down as obscene:

    “Are you looking to show contempt towards this Court?”
    “Right now, I’m doin’ my damnedest to conceal it, Your Honour!”

    Nige just makes it a little bit easier not to have to conceal contempt for all the other politicians, but that’s pretty much the extent of his contribution; “I’m bad, but they’re worse” is hardly a recommendation.

      That seems to be the entirety of the Labour Party’s message so dont see any reason Nige shouldnt use it…at least he’s got the odd policy knocking around in contrast to millibland & co.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
