“This is a straight political battle with the Conservative Party and their allies in the media, and decency.” says Blunkett.
Guido asked Mike Smithson at PoliticalBetting.Com
to use his influence with the powers that be to get a bookie to make a price in Blunkett going. Lo and behold, William Hill have decided to make my Christmas;
BLUNKETT 7/4 TO BE OUT BY NEW YEAR’S DAY………..
David Blunkett is a 7/4 chance with William Hill to be out of his job as Work & Pensions Secretary by December 31, 2005. Hills make him 2/5 to survive until then. ‘If Mr Blair thought that expressing support for Mr Blunkett would end the controversy he seems to have been wrong and we have received far more enquiries about Mr Blunkett going than staying’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
So, indecently, I’m off to bet a few quid on Blunkett having a few problems soon. Its de ja vu all over again.
Mr Decency seems to forget his defrauding of the taxpayer to ferry his mistress about at the public’s expense, his arrogant ordering of civil servants to take care of his mistress’ Nanny problems, his latest shady share dealings and the dodgy tax dodging trust.
Notice that in his statement he says “I have not made any representations to any government department or agency on behalf of DNA Bioscience since returning to government.” What about before?
