I bow to the great JC* on this matter - his comments from his column in The Times** sums it up:
"I hate Peter Mandelson. I hate his fondness for extremely pale blue jeans and I hate that preposterous moustache he used to sport in the days when he didnât bother trying to cover up his left-wing fanaticism. I hate the way he quite literally lords it over us even though heâs resigned in disgrace twice, and now holds an important decision-making job for which he was not elected." http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/columnists/jeremy_clarkson/article6907747.ece
* Jeremy Clarkson, who did you expect?
* Ah, but it's a piece in The Times, which is owned by Mr Murdoch, who owns The Sun, and Sky, and Fox. Quick nurse, the tin foil hat!
I suppose we could find text that would contradict manhandlbum continuously (the press support us, the press hate us etc), at the end of the day heâs a political wanna be leader throbber, who just wants to be in the lime light, what next, the Polls are wrong
Problem with this lot is that I don't trust any statistics they throw at us anyway, they could say that night was dark and I would still have to go out and check, and while I was out checking something else would have happened that screwed us even more.
Maybe the presenter of Today could have asked Lord Rumba if, as he has a new found love for the armed forces, he still regards the Army as 'full of chinless wonders'. What is nauseating is the number of Liarbour MPs who have dined out for years on stories of how much they hate the armed forces, suddenly having a Damescene conversion and bleating about how much they 'respite and admire our courageous men and women in uniform' in the hope that it might gain them a few votes.
The words Patriotism, last refuge and scoundrel come to mind.
