Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

Hazel Blears says teenagers are bored.

Hazel Blears' car has been vandalised. She is reported as saying it was targetted by some disaffected teenagers who had "... nothing to do on a hot afternoon".

The Telegraph carries more details in its' article "Hazel Blears's Car smashed up while she speaks to voters."

Mrs Rigby took a moment to remind herself of Hazel's Parliamentary career.

Hazel Blears was first elected in 1997, as MP for for Salford. A mere four years later, in 2001, she was given the role of Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Department of Health. From 2007 she was Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. She resigned from the Cabinet in June 2009.

Mrs R wonders if Hazel has suffered a lapse of memory. She seems to have forgotten that for the last two years it was her responsibility to ensure our "Communities" work properly - which should have included making sure our youth are not so bored on a hot summer's day that they resort to smashing cars for fun.

Mrs R isn't the least impressed that Hazel also said, "This is what a lot of people in my constituency have to put up with."

These young people have grown up during the twelve years of New Labour. What a terrible indictment of her own government's policies!
