Is that a barrel being scraped?

Britain's two Biggest Bloggers both currently have stories up attacking the Labour Party. I don't think their rivals in the 'Dead Tree Press' need lose much sleep.

Guido Fawkes reports that someone who works for the Labour Party is getting a new job. This is bad for the Labour Party because she knows some other people who have also in the past worked for the Labour Party. In addition, apparently Gordon Brown might not have said hello to Keith Vaz when he walked past him.

Meanwhile Iain Dale is criticising Alastair Darling for not following the economic advice of, erm, John Redwood. If only we'd introduced the recommendations in Redwood's economic competitiveness policy review, then, um.

Is this 'criticising the government' lark harder than it looks or something?

No, it is easy, as you will soon find out if you follow my new blogging adventures at - where a link to the Don is already provided.

And with that effortless bit of self promotion, away into the night I go.....

Link now added. If you are doing readers' requests, I would like to hear more about kung fu and less about criticisms of the government, pls tks.

You're misrepresenting the Dale post - he's criticising Darling for inconsistencies in his position, not for 'not following Redwood's advice'.

The Redwood quote is just an observation that tax cuts don't amount to 'taking money out the economy', a fairly basic trusim by any reading. The first bit of Iain's post points out that part of Darling's theme yesterday ('live within our means') was presaged by Cameron five months ago and criticised by Darling.

erm... is this criticising the opposition' harder than it looks...

Interesting. Cameron thinks the UK should live within its means, but Redwood says interest rates should be cut to 3% to get the economy going (presumably by encouraging a borrowing binge).

Consistent, eh.

Well, I got my cathartic rant at the government out of the way, so I promise a post on kung fu to come up soon!

Ta for the link,
