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

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
