Blunkett is trying to get the sympathy vote and be rated as a man of honour. He doesnât deserve the former and as his ARRSE still points downwards, is never going to be the latter. His resignation pity me/understand me/love me interviews are blowing smoke over the fundamentals. Budd has him by the balls on the Visa sleaze, so the rail ticket and abuse of official transport with lame excuse would gain currency. Blair said Blunkett would be exonerated, and he wonât be.
Blunkett now tries to blame his massive honour and integrity for offending his colleagues in his biography and cites that offence as a reason for going. Then the git drones on about his personal life. Jeez. It was like watching Diana, PoW, doe eyed (difficult in Blunkettâs case) looking for sympathy. Iâm in turmoil.
The real reasons for his resignation and the nature of the man are being obscured by the smell and steam from the enormous pile of bullshit being presented to the gullible public. I hope Iâm proved wrong but I doubt it. Old ladies will be saying, 'poor man, and him blind as well, bless'. The cynical might say Blunkett is an egomaniac and a male bunny boiler.
