New Statesman article “Blair is Stalinesque” Christina Odone resigns in protest

I gather that the lovely Christina Odone has resigned as deputy-editor of the New Statesman over the cover depicting Tony Blair as Stalin and the accompanying bonkers article entitled “Dictator of Downing St”.

The proprietor is Geoffrey Robinson, Brown’s disgraced mate. As a result the fading New Statesman is completely over the top in its endless agitation against Blair.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
