Keith Vaz’s Christmas card is something of an institution, and this year’s Harry Potter-themed effort on behalf of the Home Affairs select committee is as bad as ever. Yes that is Theresa May as a witch…
Relating to Keith Vaz and his numerous appearances in the Leicester Mercury, I would like to point out that on Sunday, at about 10am, I will be putting up the Christmas lights at my home and shortly thereafter I will be changing the front wheel on my car.
If Mr Vaz wishes to attend, I will arrange for a photographer to be present.

Keith Vaz can’t seem to get anything right this week. This morning he sent out this press release offering his thoughts on Mandela’s death, misspelling his name not once, not twice, but three times:
“I am deeply saddened to hear of Nelson Mandella’s death. He humbled the world with his actions and words.
I heard the news with Rev. Jesse Jackson who understands more than most Mandella’s contribution to society.
Mandella was an icon of a generation, an inspirational leader and politician, and a historic civil rights champion, but more than anything he was a human being who walked to freedom whilst carrying a nation on his shoulders. He will, and should be, remembered forever.”
At least he loved his country eh…
Moany Keith Vaz is cross about outsourcing of jobs from Westminster, to areas with lower levels of employment:
Sad farewell to longstanding switchboard operators at HOC moved by Capita to Southampton. Next G4S will be asked to do the security #farce

Would he be opposed to those big baddies at G4S outsourcing jobs to his own constituency? Well apparently not. Here is Keith welcoming the management of G4S to Leicester just last week, where he praised them for employing 60 people from his local area through a new outsourcing contract:
Who does Keith have to thank for those jobs? The French Ministry of Justice. Farce, indeed…

Tony Blair threatens Ed:
“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority… If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”
