Fabulous Moments in Spin

Hazel Blears is all over the place saying nothing is wrong, the media is making it all up, everything is fine. Bonkers. Why does she talk such transparent bullshit? Is it totally beyond her to talk honestly albeit cautiously?

“These reports are totally exaggerrated” – Ruth Kelly, on the BBC this morning she was repeatedly asked if Tony and Gordon were still friends. To her credit she didn’t lie.

“I would say the transition … the energizing, refreshing transition to Gordon Brown — not to anyone else — is a transition that is about ideas and values more than about dates” – Miliband. The date the ultra-Blairites have in mind is just after when hell freezes over. So why not refresh and energize now?
