The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

The BIG BEAST enters

Well he's a big beast according to the front page of Daily Mail. Ken Clarke that is.

An interestinga rticle that is certainly worth a read. Clarke links the terrorist attacks to the war on Iraq, but still leaves me unsure as to what action he would have taken as leader or indeed as PM.

Then of course there are the amusing take me as I am type of comments - such as refusing to give up his outside itnterests UNLESS he becomes leader.

Worth a read. I wonder what Wat has to say.......

    He's a beast alright. Probably a lion. After all he has the image of one who lies in the shade all day, occasionally roaring at passers by.

    I think it's a pity he's elbowed David Cameron aside- DC would have been a more interesting and forward looking alternative to DD.

    Also interesting how the Mail's editorial says its main reservation about DD is the company he keeps.

    We've just seen Henry iv, where Hal rejects all his old drinking mates once he becomes King.

    I wonder...
