Watson : I'm Miserable Now

Tom Watson, the Minister for Mudslinging, is blogging again.

tom_wOn reflection, this week wasn’t the most relaxing of family breaks to Cornwall. And for those that revel in these things, I can say with some certainty, that at times, it was the most miserable I have ever been.

Still, I did read another book. Perhaps I might add Echoes of an Autobiography by Naguib Mahfouz to the list of 25 others, that have interested more book readers than I anticipated last week. (Is it only a week since I published the list? Seems like an epoch.)

The book gave moments of fragmentary pleasure during a dreadful week. As Mahfouz wrote “there whispered in my ear a voice at dawn: ‘Congraulations to you – the time for making your farewells has been decreed.’ Deeply affected I closed my eyes and saw my funeral moving along, with myself at its head carrying a large glass filled with the nectar of life”

Yes Tom, the time for making your farewells has been decreed.  Large glasses have been raised by Blairites…

UPDATE : Tom Watson not be attending the government’s big Digital Britain Summit today, he lies his excuse is that despite being the “Digital Engagement Minister” he only got his invite on Wednesday. You can’t hide for ever Tom.
