Hattersley in Suicide Warning

Question to Roy Hattersley on the radio yesterday (as quoted in today's super soaraway Sun)

Interviewer: Should John Reid become next leader of the Labour Party?

Hattersley: If he does I will shoot myself.

I know exactly what you're expecting me to write now, so I needn't bother. God, I'm soooo predictable!

He would probably miss. I wouldn't make the same mistake if I was aiming at him. Then again even Lzee Harvey Oswald would struggle to aim dead centre with all that phelm flying around...

Could we not get him to shoot some one else?

Hattersley has his good side you know. But hey I am an old Crosland/Jenkins/Healey Labour person, what do I know! ;)

I used to detest Hattersley with a vengeance in my misguided youth.

Having read some of his excellent attacks on the Blairistas, I have to say, give the devil his due.

As with Michael Meacher, anyone who his prepared not to toe the party line is worth a second look.

And I could have seen one of his last performances at the Edinburgh Book Festival on Monday!

Last night I heard Michael Gove speaking favourably about blogs - including this eminent one. He even reads mine!

How the f*** can Fattersley possibly blow his brain cell out?

Got it! Head down the muzzle of a 105mm cannon and depleted uranium shell. No, I'm not convinced, sorry.
