A good day to bury bad news - AGAIN

The Prince Of Darkness introduced his bill to Part-Privatise
the Post Office today - A Day Early. Why the hurry ?

by johnofgwent

Like GA, I also have little to say directly on the matter of the death of David Cameron's son. Except perhaps to agree that too many fathers faced a similar ordeal over their (some only just) "grown up" sons courtesy of Blair and Brown's support for Bush's military belligerence.

But it is a struggle for me to go even that far. Because when I read the BBC News pages this afternoon, my first thought was of standing, over twenty years ago, at the side of a deep dark hole in a welsh valley not that far from where I sit now. A deep, stygian black hole into which my brother was placing a small white coffin. It was such a large hole for such a small box, and it sent down such a long way. And once you've done that, it leaves its mark on you.

Yet as I sit here tonight I am spitting blood and wishing a similar fate a thousand times over for one spectacularly heartless bastard. Except that the "lifestyle" enjoyed by the chap inquestion means he'll never have to go through the same experience.

For I thought the Labour Party had sunk to the lowest that it was possible to go when spinmeistress Jo Moore proved that whilst having a beating heart wasn't a total barrier to political achievement, being a heartless bitch when it came to choosing when to bury bad news certainly helped.

But at 18:15 tonight, the BBC Six O Clock News revealed that there was a new depth to which the Labour Party could sink.

For earlier this afternoon, with Prime Ministers Questions abandoned as a "mark of respect", The Prince Of Darkness and Master Manipulator Peter Mandelson introduced his bill to part the privatise the Post Office in the House of Lords. And he began the proceedings a full day earlier than he had previously announced he would.

I could not find anyone prepared to write a new page or political blog on the depth of this man's uncaring. So the only proof I can offer you is this recording of the section in question from the BBC Six O Clock News.

"The controversial bill to part-privatise royal Mail has been introduced by the busiess secretary lord mandelson, a day earlier than expected. The plans to sell off up to thirty per cent of the business were not debated, and were given a first reading in the House of Lords. There were protests against the plans yesterday, and more that 120 Labour MPs have signed a motion opposing them. The Labour Peer Lord Clark, a former postman, shouted 'shame on you' as the bill was introduced".

Shame on you, indeed. C'mon Gordon. Get up on a podium and tell me this arse bandit whose "lifestyle choice" means he'll never have a son of his own didn't wake up earlier today, hear the news and think "what a magnificent opportunity to get this piece of nasty politics off to a good start".

interesting but i used to live in harrow weald, went to university of westminster in harrow, the university was full of radical muslims. the area is a hot bed of extremism.
near me was a small mosque and a radical muslim bookshop near the train station, no doubt after 10 years from leaving harrow weald that small book shop and mosque have probably trebled in "Lebensraum".
