      When the demon eyes poster came out the Blair effect was still in existence and people thought it a foolish poster.

      only now, with the gloss worn thin with blood does that old poster look ..prophetic ?

        This looks like a film of technical merit, but dubious value and impact, that the Boulting Brothers would have put out when they were in their teens.
        I am afraid that the self proclaimed intellectual genius Ed Miliband has not only lost the moral argument, but has shown that he again has allowed the children to rule the school.

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.
