    I think he nails Cameron. I'm not impressed with Brown either. Everyone in work is talking about who will get made redundant when this 10% cut in education spending kicks in. And all to satisfy some totally ephemeral idea of a bond market that might demand even more interest on its risk free assets if we don't make the right noises and man up for some punishment...

    I met Johann Hari when I was doing an internship at the New Statesman, back in the day. Swears' post just reminded me to post what happened to the incumbent deputy editor there...:

    In 1998, Odone became deputy editor of the New Statesman.[12]

    Odone resigned in November 2004. She denied reports that the cause was a poor working relationship with editor Peter Wilby, culminating in a row over a cover depicting Tony Blair as Joseph Stalin. Her position was that she and Wilby had a good working relationship, and had both been victims of New Labour plots to destabilise the New Statesman, orchestrated by Tony Blair. She stated that the real reason for her departure was an offer to present a programme on Channel 4 television about religion.[12]

    She further alleged that "neo-Left" colleagues had been plotting against the New Statesman, stating "However nasty the Right gets, the Left gets much more wicked", and that this "neo-Left" was making voodoo dolls of her and wishing cancer upon her.[12] One of those attacked, Johann Hari, questioned her sanity in response, arguing there were inconsistencies in her claims, including that one of the supposedly Blairite conspirators, Jackie Ashley, is opposed to Blair and has called repeatedly for him to resign


    Total mentalist.

    Don't do it. The feelings of shame and revulsion are too much to bear. If it's the only way, imagine their face contorting in orgasm and mouthing the word 'Maggie!'.

    You should read Alan Clark's diaries. The crush he has on Maggie is palpable, and revolting.

    If there's anything that puts me off a lady it's the sense that they aren't really the same morally as me. So no.

    some people get off on that!

    but similarly, anyone who voted for labour post-1997 would have to be a no-no?

    In my kingdom, Marina Hyde gets a knighthood for this headline (or the sub who did it) :

    haha. nah, just making the point that while I hate the Tories as much as anyone (sensible), the bile directed against them around election time does rather let all the people in Labour who have been doing bad shit over the past 13 years off the hook a little, by way of comparison. Better of two evils?..but when both are so evil, who's to tell?

    Can anyone explain what's likely to happen when the inevitable hung parliament occurs - I got bored trying to find out...
