Browne But Not Out

20140408-084910.jpg

Guido had the first look at Jeremy Browne’s new book at the weekend, in which the sacked LibDem lays into his own leader’s “timidity“. Top of Guido’s Sun on Sunday column two days ago it makes the front page of the Telegraph today. In fact it is the only time Clegg is mentioned in the whole book.

browne-bookReaders could be forgiven for thinking Browne had defected to the Tories. He praises Thatcher for privatisation and Blair for his market-based public service reforms. The book is more radical than most Tory ministers, on cutting the size of the state Browne adds: “Cameron has said, ‘We have to be completely focused on getting more for less in our public services’. I agree… but I would go further.” He even borrows Dave’s favourite global race theme. “Jeremy knows where to find us,” chuckles a Conservative source.

Race Plan by Jeremy Browne MP is available on Amazon for £10.

          She won’t be fired. Well not yet and it will be a promotion out of the job.

          If she falls then the whole LibLabCon falls and that will not be allowed to happen.

          You’ve just been fired (but only as culture secretary)! Read the news if you think you haven’t.

          On topic-ish: Race Plan sounds like an exciting book, but I don’t have a copy.

    “He praises Thatcher for privatisation…”
    While presumably cursing god, for the consequential financial collapse that accompanied it? Time for a new order axiom: With unfettered power comes no responsibility whatsoever.

    “and Blair for his market-based public service reforms.”
    Odd, that questions asked of a living person should garner as many answers as those posed to someone now deceased. Still honoring a moral guide who condemns the mafia whilst doing little to denounce institutionalized pedophilia in their own ranks, speaks volumes.
