    “Mummy, how did I get stuck with a Norse goddess’s name?”
    “Well actually, darling, who we named you after was the No. 11 cat at the time. ”

    Five will get you ten the kid is “Camille,” or “Ann,” when she grows up.

    My condolences to the children on the stupid names.

    Still, I suppose they could be called Jocasta or Airing-Cupboard Popsickle

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
