you must be a real idiot to have to resign twice from the cabinet in less than one year.
i find that he joined a dna testing company's board hilarious. he does have plenty of experience with them, afterall.
so calculated - resigns now, retreats for six-eight months, by the middle of next year he'll be back in at the next reshuffle.
politics is so horribly predictable these days.
I just sent you a note rather than replying in this thread.
Sorry colonol. Enjoy it!
sort of revolving door policy is indicative of the blair government i.e they just plain dont give a shit what anyone else thinks. i hope he's gone for at least a year this time
Maybe six months....
That's what they'll be saying at Labour HQ!
for him. and his dog
last time they could say "he was re-elected by his constituants, so the public have forgiven him". this won't happen again for another 3 years.
also, i think mandy only got two chances. maybe they could send blunkett to brussels and he can be a cunt there instead of here.
well, i suppose it's the saying "power currupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely"
of course. i think he should have gone for having a letter written on houses of parliament notepaper when it wasn't government business.
maybe they should get an asbo put on him to stop him him ever going within 100yds of downing st.
and he can fuck off out of his house as well, he isn't home secretary so shouldn't live in the home secretary's house.
...makes some good points about Blair in his book about the gulf war, basically pointing out his great weakness is fear that he is not loved.
Hence he keeps only putting his friends into the cabinet and those that are forced to leave come back because he is desperate to have them there making him feel loved.
maybe if the media and the government focused on more important matters in this bloody country more would get done...
im sorry to see blunkett go
