Answer the Question, Dr Reid...

Has Gordon offered you the post of Home Secretary in his government?
Were you warned that the Home Office had lost track of some paedophiles?
Are you a man who likes headlines rather than details?
Are you completely useless?

Are you saying that Reid will have a "silly walk" after Brown gets in him?

Reid wants a promotion - and this is part of his plan to get it.

Iain, slightly disappointed in you.

Reid performed well for a man up to his neck in shit. In fact, I can't think of anyone in the Labour shower who could cope better, possibly with the exception of Jack Straw. He will survive this. He won't be leader this year, but if he can be the guy who survives the 'Home Office', then he will show he has the credentials to survive the 'slings & arrows' of the Prime Ministerial role.

This photo makes me looks as though I am in the electric chair. Certainly, I am in the hot seat. In answer to your questions; yes (but see below); yes; yes; no.

That is, Minister for Homeland Security when the Home Office is split up. But, I am not out of the leadership race by a long chalk. I still believe that I will be the Prime Minister. That is something Michael Howard failed to achieve, and it would give me great satisfaction to rub his nose in it...

cause he's being paid to be the clown, to make us laugh, to keep the papers full of unbelievable incompetence.

Can you honestly believe anyone is that stupid.

He plays, we watch, whilst the real villains are off doing something naughty....

Blair and Brown are up to no good somewhere, dont take your eyes off them...

'Perception is reality' - as true in politics as it is in marketing.

The Home Office hasn't gone from A* to F- overnight. The perception changed because John Reid 'Got the wallpaper stripper' out. When it suits them they will tile over the nasty stuff. Cover it all with thick paint and weekend of Laurence Llewelyn Bowen type bollocks and nobody will be any the wiser. The actual facts mean little. Most people know how as much as how a car engine works as the mechanics of the Home Office.

All they have to do is take off the Skoda badge and replace with a VW badge. And just before the next election, re-badge it as an Audi - the job's a good 'un.

"Is it true Dr. Reid that you have taken up DIY and redecorated your office without asking the TGWU for permission?"

I can think of another former Home Affairs spokesperson who might enjoy this!
