Bad Al Keeps Good Company

You know things are never going to go well when Bad Al Campbell gives you a n endorsement.  It seems Iris Robinson was in fact just trying to cover her back with her claims of depression using tactics straight out of the Campbell media manipulation playbook.   Bad Al wrote a long piece on his blog before Christmas about brave Iris:

If my own experience is anything to go she will feel better for being open, and she will perhaps be surprised by the warmth of people towards her admission. There are so many people out there with mental health problems, yet so few who speak openly about them. I hope that once the dustsettles she will get involved in the Time to Change campaign to break down the stigma and taboo surrounding mental illness, which leads directly to discrimination. I was pleased that her statement suggested she would have more to say on the subject of her illness at a later date. A word too on her husband. Depression is a horrible illness for the sufferer. But it can be a huge strain too on the family of the depressive, and it cannot have been easy for him to cope with his wife’s illness in addition to everything else his various political roles require.

What is it with him and people killing, or at least trying to, kill themselves?

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
