An Honest Labour Politician

Oona King is really selling her political diaries, well not literally, but she’s really trying. In an email to colleagues she admits sales are are a little disappointing.

“Happily it’s funnier than it sounds, and I was delighted that at both ends of the political spectrum The Guardian and the Daily Mail gave it glowing reviews. The Guardian wrote “King tells her tale with humility, wisdom, and considerable wit.” My publisher, however, told me it was the slowest-selling political diaries she’d ever had (with the exception of David Blunkett’s) and that I should do more to publicise it. Hence this email – please forgive me.”

Sales must be really bad – not even David Blunkett has read his book.

Quote of the Day

Hamas offer only a qualified endorsement of the Labour Party’s leader…

“We Salute Jeremy Corbyn’s supportive positions to the Palestinians, but the issue of him as a prime minister is an internal British issue and we respect the choice of the British people.”
