So ‘Gordon - in - waiting’ will send his sprog to a state school. Good for Gordon!

He’s given the finger to the traitors including Tony Blair, Diane Abbot and Keith Bradley (my ex MP who was ousted by the lib dems in the last election). According to the Manchester Evening News, Keith's son had special needs. I think the ‘need’ was to be with his mates.

I’m not sure I can I trust myself to mention this despicable, devious, deceitful, duplicitous person who was voted into parliament by the good folk of Bolton.

Ruth Kelly is a member of Opus Dei the secret society which was strongly supported by the government of General Franco. The members of Opus Dei ''seek to promote traditional Catholic values and to oppose liberalism and immorality''.

I somehow don’t think the word ‘immorality’ means the same to them as it does to me!

Every time I switch on the TV or radio, I hear some heroic parent of a special needs kid who has had to give up their life, their job and sometimes their friends and their home to get the help required. What are Kelly and Blair doing for them? Is Kelly going provide the fees of £15000 a year to send all these kids to the same Oxfordshire boarding school as her son?


Kelly holds two records - giving birth to four children whilst serving as an MP and being the youngest cabinet minister ever at the age of 36.

She moved from Northern Ireland to Westminster school (£6 - 8000 per term) where she was a contemporary of Helena Bonham Carter. Don’t blame the school too much because our old pal Tony Benn also attended from 1925 onwards.
She then (of course) went on to Oxford.

So let’s give Gordon some support.

I just hope to God he hasn’t put the lad’s name down for Eton.

God preserve us from hypoctites Kaz!
In that photo she looks like an extra in a Harry Potter film - an 18 year old trying to look 11. Either that or one of the Chipmunks.
Can't wait to watch "The Trial of Tony Blair" - I think it's on Thursday night although I'm now thinking I may have missed it!

Another blogger who e-mails me tells me that her three year old daughter said "Ruth Kelly is a bloody hypocrite". Out of the mouths of babes ...

Gives you some sort of hope for future generations, doesn't it? Perhaps we loony lefty so-called do-gooder socialists aren't dead in the water just yet!

Murph: Don't insult chipmunks - Do you chase them in Norfolk?

Betty: Let's hope that child stands for parliament when she grows up.

I didn't know she was a member of Opus Dei... how can I have missed that? How come it isn't on the news every night?

But it doesn't surpise me... never trusted her. Much as I'd like to support Gordon I think he may have already compromised too much to stay where he is (but I hope I'm wrong).

I'm not supporting a sweaty sock to run our country! He might be a good accountant but that's about it.

nic: I don't know how you missed it as you are usually so clued up.
Like you I find it terrifying - it tests my principles as I feel somehow that it shouldn't be allowed.
I agree about Gordon - but what's the alternative?

Sleepless: I'd really love to know who you'd suggest to run our country. Are we doomed?

It has been suggested that I should take the job on Kaz, but I feel Britain is not yet ready for my style of leadership.

Failing that I'm with Stephen Fry but I know you don't share my appreciation of his talents.

Sleepless: You are far too modest.

If we are going for a British icon - we should choose David Attenborough.
Although I prefer Dickie to be honest!!

And I thought the whole idea of politics was to feather your own nest, stay in power as long as possible, and try not to get found out.
Whilst of course telling everyone else what they should and must do, and doing exactly as you please yourself.
Cynical? Moi?

You put is so well Stitch, I'm afraid I'm a bit naïve about this sort of thing.
I still see politicians as having a burning desire to put the world to rights. *Triumph of Hope over Experience* eh?

I continue to be surprised and disillusioned by the rampant hypocrisy of politicians.

Thanks for the vote of confidence anyway.

Anx: I just love the word ‘rampant’.
I wonder how much more hypocrisy Tony will dish out before he goes?

Sleepless: I do, I do

Gareth: My desktop Chambers says vile means *detestable, loathsome; foul; depraved; very bad; base; worthless, mean, paltry*.

Yes! But why paltry??

Only a few of the nu-labour hypocrites have been identified to date. What about the double barrelled Labour MP for Brent North, one of Londons most deprived constituencies (Gardiner-Smith), a junior minister I think, who lives in nice leafy Hertfordshire and sends his sons to the single sex selective Watford Grammar School.

How many more are there?

Oh yes , strong on moral principal. When TB says "watch my lips...Education Education Education" was he simply referring to a three tier education system. Private, state-sponsored private (Selectives and Grammers) and then the rest for those with no real choice? Bastards the lot of them and Golden Gordon is no better. He changes his position as often as he changes his pants, king of the focus groups is our Gordon, strong on character short on conviction.

I heard someone on the Radio this morning suggesting that Head Teachers don't have to be teachers but managers. Like the Health service managers who don't have to be doctors, just experts in managing PFI scams.

Perhaps Politicians have to swear to the Hypocritic Oath?

I wish Lembit Opik would piss off to Bulgaria so I could vote Lib Dem.

(not that we get the vote, you understand.)

As soon as I've found a Gordon alternative I'll let you know....

Hi Toomuch: I like your attitude.
'Gardiner - Smith' is obviously as appropriate for Brent North as 'Kelly' is for Bolton.

I only try to drum up support for Gordon because I’m terrified by the prospect of Cameron!

‘Hypocritic Oath’ - brilliant!

They can be guaranteed to break every promise - so this would turn them into honest persons of principle.

Nic: Your nation awaits.
I shall forward copies of your suggestion to all members of the cabinet and Her Majesty
