    Surprised to see them uncritically regurgitate the Guardian article.

    I guess I won't bash the Guardian too much; for a large Western journalistic organ, they are pretty brave themselves, most of the time. GCHQ is no fun to mess with, and they were quite brave about the Snowden revelations.

        Blair has always seemed to me like a British Norm Coleman who somehow found his way into higher political office.

            which is why he reminds me of Coleman.

            A dirty little beast like Hufsa.

              In terms of hollowing out his own party from within, no.
