David Blunkett continues to be a very naughty boy. He was overhead at the US Embassy Christmas Party last week opining: “If he wants to win, Gordon has got to get rid of the people around him. People like Douglas Alexander and Alistair Darling otherwise we will be dead in the water”. After his experience of tittle-tattling with his biographer Stephen Pollard about his Cabinet colleagues you’d have thought Blunkett might be a little bit more careful who he slags off. Apparently not.
