When Gordon Brown pulled out of PMQs this week because of Jacob Zuma’s state visit there was much chortling that he didn’t much fancy PMQs. But I suspect that Labour is rather glad that William Hague is up today; no Tory politician is more central to the Ashcroft peerage than Hague, and Hague’s appearance at the despatch box is Labour’s best chance of taking this story into a third day.
Is it just me who then thought: actually, it's quite possible Gordon Brown pulled this shoddy manoeuvre just so that Ashcroft would stay in the headlines again?
And of course, that boot-faced cunt's performance dragging everything round to Ashcroft was so fucking edifying, wasn't it? Yes, Hazel fucking Blears: it's definitely corrosive right-wing bloggers to blame for UK politics's shit reputation.
You utter bunch of useless cunts.
