Gordon Brown: 'Let Jacqui Smith get on with her job as Home Secretary'
So, the Home Secretary has been taking money from my wallet to give to her husband so he can watch porn films, so he can get turned on enough to 'sort her out' on a Friday night?
I can hardly be bothered to comment on this, except to ask the question, how embarrassed does a cabinet minister have to get these days before they finally do the decent thing and clear their desk (or have it cleared for them)?
As they are now virtually all career politicians, with no life outside of politics, I suppose we shouldn't be too surprised that they'll never resign. But, really. How BAD does it have to be before they are sacked?
Do they have to be caught with their clothes off behind a tree in Hyde Park, wearing nothing but stockings and sniffing amyl nitrate fumes from a silver dish stolen from a reception at Buckingham Palace? Or would even that not be bad enough? I suspect it wouldn't. In fact, I can almost see the BBC report now, claiming how overwork and stress has taken a terrible undeserving toll on one of our otherwise heroic masters.
Well, at least this news item further diminishes any remaining sliver of respect anybody had for politicians. So at least we can claim that furtive silver thread from this sordid dark cloud of sleazy immoral corruption.
