Clarke drives a wedge...

Big beast Ken Clarke was trying to cause friction between two neighbours on Downing Street when he was chatting to Lobbydog about the pre-budget report last night.

He said: “Alistair has to decide whether he goes into posterity as a responsible Chancellor of the Exchequer, or whether he plays silly politics at the behest of the Prime Minister.

“He won’t be Chancellor very long now anyway. Gordon wanted to get rid of him and bring in Ed Balls at the last reshuffle and in the unlikely event that Brown wins the next election he will sack him and do just that.

“He must decide if he wants to play silly games and politics with his last few months or whether he will talk responsibly about the problems the country faces and set out in detail how the Government plans to tackle them.”


Good old game playing. But the thought must have crossed Darling’s mind that even if Labour does win he’ll be for the chop.

I’ll be watching Ed Balls' face during the PBR today.

Hope you'll be asking Graham Allen why he claimed to dry clean "1 blouse" in 2008.

Why do we pay for people to have their shirts, and/or blouses cleaned?

Do people of the political classes not wash shirts and iron them, you know, in teh wsame sort of way that us "ordinary" people do?

Or would the rough nasty soap hurt their poor delicate superior skins?

Ken should be the shadow chancellor not Osborne!

Let right be done.
