'Cos They Had a Bad Day...

I've got the Daniel Powter song 'Bad Day' as my mobile phone ring tone. This could be adopted by any number of left of centre politicians today. Can you recall a day when Labour and the LibDems have had such a terrible 24 hours? As Cilla would say, here's a quick reminder...

1. Charles Clarke and the (non) deported prisoners
2. Patricia Hewitt being heckled by nurses
3. Neil Kinnock getting six months...well, a 6 month driving ban
4. Ming Campbell's disaster at PMQs
5. More revelations in The Times about LibDem donor Michael Brown
6. LibDem Council candidate's wife arrested for postal vote fraud
7. John Prescott's affair with his diary secretary

Have I missed anything? I'm feeling quite faint...

I prefer the REM song 'bad day'. One line springs to mind..."Shit so thick you can stir it with a stick"

There is this in the Sun

What a great article by Fergus Shanahan on home rule England. It's a suject avoided by the three main parties yet English soldiers are dying and putting their lives on the line every day, trying to restore democracy to Iraq, while the English at home are denied the same democratic representation given to the rest of the UK.
New Labour hypocrisy knows no bounds.

They used the Powter song on Newsnight just now, great minds eh Iain?

The good news for the Lib Dems is that their problems have had almost no press attention tonight- all dominated by Labour. Voters don't know about the donations from the fraudster, and won't until it reaches its next stage. They also don't know much about Ming's PMQs problems. Don't think all the voters are going to the Tories- the last two polls have shown a LD surge, presumably as Labour voters have switched from the sleaze of their party, and are looking for a party with similar left-wing views.....many will want to give Blair a bloody nose.
