Ken wants to play too

Ken Clarke must feel a little left out this morning.

For weeks he’s been trying to draw the Business Secretary into a direct war of words but Mandy hasn’t taken the bait.

Then along comes Bank of England Governor Mervyn King, who I might add bears a startling resemblance to Corporal Jones from Dad’s Army.

He makes one critical comment about Brown in a select committee and up pops Mandy’s pointing finger, accusing the BoE of holding up help for the car industry.

He also said the Treasury was culpable, but made sure to point out that it was the BoE that was “in pole position on this.”

Poor old Ken must be wondering what he has to do to get a reaction.

This morning he tried: “We urged the Government to take action several weeks ago, but at the time, all Peter Mandelson did was to ask one of his junior ministers to study it - now he's complaining about the delay!”

No doubt Mandy will still hold his tongue.

Initially the tactic appeared diversionary. But I imagine he wants to be able to dictate the terms and timing of any conflict with Clarke.

Mandy's too preoccupied fending off the Russian Mafia these days. Look at him closely. He has an air of it's all too much for him.

Damn, much a responsibility of appreciation is all together for your idea. I truly prefer to play online keno, I won't hide away, particularly for cash. Soon there are different web-based locales that proposition games for cash, at any rate where to observe a solid wellspring of such complaints, I observed keno online, there are absolutely different battles for playing on the web. It turns me on so much, particularly following a dull day at work, there isn't anything better wandered a few hundred, which won't change a ton to the degree saves, at any rate will change everything to the degree character.
