Pollard: “Preposterous… Pull the other one”

Polly has yet to call Blunkett a liar, but he does say on his blog

… there is already one element of the affair which is self-evidently preposterous. According to Mr Blunkett’s explanation, he forgot putting into his red ministerial box a letter about the visa application for his own son’s nanny. I am unable to comprehend how such an explanation is remotely possible. This is a man who can recall trivial conversations from 20 years ago with constituents about refuse collections; with a memory so powerful, its like has never before been seen in politics. And yet he forgot, he says, that he put his son’s nanny’s visa application into the system.

Pull the other one.

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
