Jacqui Smith: umm, what can you say…

… when she comes out with this:

You don’t walk in areas you don’t know in any circumstances and I never have in my life.

Presumably she only walks around places that she has driven through or done a low-level flight over first to get to know them? Hmm … her deciding that I’m not a real person seems quite tame by comparison.

P.S. Jolly nice of the Daily Telegraph to manage to squeeze in quotes from three different Liberal Democrat MPs into their one piece here.

    1 – absolutely James. Clive Stafford Smith said how he couldn’t believe the Tories were claiming that the UK was top of the premier league of crime in the 2005 election – pointing out that he’d never been held up at gunpoint in the UK whereas that had happened to him four times in the US.

    She should try Beachy Head. The edge is very, very crumbly, and there is no fence to hold idiots back.

    Seriously, the lack of any real talent on the Labour front bench is astounding.

    Brown has looked haggard and burned out since his mauling by Cameron last October. I cannot see him lasting the year. Who will replace him? Harriet Harman? Hazel Blears? Steve Pound, perhaps? Or the boy, Milliband?

    The proliferation of colourless mediocrity at the top of the Labour Party is going to prove a very serious challenge to the comrades (gulp, colleagues) by the end of the year.

  • “I am much less likely to be a victim of crime than 10 years ago.”

    To be fair, that’s probably true. I don’t think a Home Secretary has been beaten up since 1972, and that was on the floor of the House of Commons …

  • Can someone help me understand the LibDems position on the EU treaty vote? As a pro-European party I can´t see the integrity in threatening to abstain…
