Fatty Pollard has the revised paperback edition of his biography of Blunkett out today and the former Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Lord Stevens’s memoirs, are out as well. Britain’s top ex-cop told the News of the Screws that “Liar Blunkett tried to stab me in the back”. The common thread in the books is that Blunkett is a liar and briefs against his enemies ruthlessly in a way that would make Mandelson blush. But Blair brought him back, and according to some sources, will eventually re-shuffle him back to the Home Office. The sources admittedly are not a million miles away from Blunkett, but since Blair despairs of the Fat Controller Clarke, who knows?
Blunkett is a crap liar. He gets caught out all the time, he lied about his mistresses, he lied about the visa, and he most recently lied about deputising for Blair while he was in Barbados.
