His Grace may be dead, in the corporeal sense, but the spirit is eternal. Hallelujah!

Anyone who has suffered what he has endured ought to be excused the occasional 'black dog' day.

The fact that 'Sir' Alan Sugar is a chum of Mohammed al Pharoah says more than I ever could about which I don't watch the Apprentice..

Odd that Jon Craig's choice matches that of an unnamed Labour MP who briefed a journalist in the Three Line Whip crew?

Lets be honest, Labour wants rid of Osborne because its personal, damages the most dangerous strategist in the Tory party, and will be very damaging to the Tories if Labour gets the Shadow Chancellor's scalp in the middle of an economic crisis.

Oddly enough, those three points have not made it into the political lobby's live coverage over the last 24 hours.
Oh sure, they tell us that its about the judgement of Cameron and Osborne, but the they fail to mention the much more damaging judgement of the PM whose chose to bring back a man who was a house guest on that yacht rather than a brief guest for drinks.

Hmm, it neatly ties into the governments narrative while glossing over some pretty glaring hypocrisy. Not the media's finest hour, but then the last two weeks has seen them get it wrong with the public big time....
Will this latest media frenzy work, and will it finally change the narrative and give them a smug I told you so glow?

I look forward to the next set of polls with interest, as I do the media's reaction.

That Kerron Cross claims to be the Labout Iaian Dale but funnier.

I read several posts. If you find extensive ramblings about broken toilets funny, then yes, I agree.

If not ... well, I won't go back there.

You should sue him for misrepresentation.
