Quote of the day ...
From a discussion on the "political betting" website about the news that the Prime Minister has been interviewed for a second time by police ...
"This just gets more and more delicious, er, sorry, I mean serious.
If revenge is a dish best served cold then this gloriously prolonged humiliation of Blair and New Labour is like swimming in a lagoon of mango sorbet."

Since all this is undoubtedly doing great damage to the reputation of politics in general and interfering with the government of our country I am trying very hard not to enjoy the humiliation of the present government.
Had it not been for the way New Labour treated the previous government when they were in opposition, I would find it much easier to resist the temptation to enjoy watching them on the receiving end. But after all the sanctimonious insults that they threw at John Major's government about the need to be whiter than white, I cannot help thinking that Blair and his cronies deserve everything they're getting.
All political parties contain a majority of decent people. All political parties contain some scoundrels. It's becoming increasingly obvious which category most of the New Labour leadership fall into.
