Another one bites the dust

John Reid"One line in which this Government has specialised over the past benighted decade has been the personal humiliation of so many who have participated in it. Their names trip off the tongue — Mandelson, Ron Brown, Blunkett, Mandelson again, Blunkett again … and now John Reid. Thuggish Glaswegian ex-drunk Dr Reid (and, don't forget, that doctorate is a sign of his high intelligence) is at least distinct from so many of his fellow sufferers. While they succumbed to carnal or financial temptations, he has been far more straightforward. He has been a loud-mouthed, incompetent berk." —Simon Heffer
