As you all know, I rather like Hazel Blears. I know it's something I will grow out of, but for the moment she is still 'my little chipmunk'. So it was with some degree of delight today that I learned that she is to become the Deputy Deputy Prime Minister in August. It seems that Hazel will be running the country in the absence of the Prime Minister, while John Prescott willbe hidden away in a broom cupboard somewhere...although on second thoughts, would they be able to find one big enough? Anyone, to the point of this post (at last, I hear you cry).
Hazel has posted an article on LabourHome questioning how the Labour Party can fight back against a resurgent Conservative Party. She ends her article with the most bizarre assertion together with a huge dig at Estate Agents...
"And that's how we will fight back: Labour substance versus Conservative spin. Labour taking tough decisions versus Conservatives dodging the issues. Labour values versus Conservatives prepared to do and say anything to get power. We may buy and sell our houses from estate agents - but would you put one in charge of the country."
Oh dear Hazel, methinks those comments might come back to haunt you. And only six comments in six hours on these words of wisdom. I trust my readers will rectify that immediately by clicking HERE.
