so 'Someone Once wrote' in the Telegraph, commenting on Matthew Parris's column concerning the "hustings statements" of the four men at the top of the Labour Party's leadership list.Most generous of you, Mr Parris, to offer such cogent advice to a bunch of dangerous buffoons.
Here's a taster or five from the article:-
andDavid Miliband looked for a moment as if he was going to.
Come to think of it, that sentence bids fair to be chiselled on to his gravestone: “David Miliband looked for a moment as if he was going to.”
andThis — from Ed Miliband, but for all the difference it makes, it could have been from the chief executive of Pepsi-Cola, the Chief Rabbi, or the chief lyricist of Abba —
andMr Balls’s submission is simply clunking and charmless.
butMr Burnham’s is kind of sweet.
Yes, these are out of context extracts, so you need to read the whole thing for yourself and, as usual, don't forget to also read the comments .... where you'll be reminded, again, thatAll four men are anyway inextricably tangled in the failure of the last Labour Government. Yet all are Privy Counsellors and three at at least are of considerable stature. You can actually imagine them as prime ministers. You just don’t want them to be.
..........this... is the collection of GOATs* that was 'running' this country until recently?????
Much is explained, if not excused.
* Edited and amended because NotASheep left a comment saying, "Leave us goats alone!"
GOAT = Mr Brown's "Government of All Talents"
Not this sorthere where you can discover How to tell a Goat Goat from a Man Goat.
