The Labour party politicians are interested initially in power. And retaining it. Forget 'The Red Flag' and all that stuff. Old hat, old chap. Once in power, there are plenty of opportunities to abuse it, of course. And I'm not talking about freebie holidays with Sir Cliff or discounts from Chanel and goodie bags at Armani.
I assume you know that Goebbels Campbell, having resigned as the Number 10 Media & Communications Adviser on a Friday [Salary £120,000 or thereabouts per annum of yours and my money], turned up to the office on Monday morning as an 'Unofficial Adviser' [Consultancy fee ??p.a. of yours and my etc. etc.]
I wonder if he claimed his Consultancy fees from Tone during his successful tour down-under as Media Adviser to the British Lions? Another unblemished success. I'd love to have heard his team talk to t'lads prior to the Otago match, or whichever it was. ["It's an odd-shaped ball but I'm sure you guys know what to do with it. England expects....oops sorry chaps...the folks back home want to see that fighting spirit that conquored the world and established the Empire....oops sorry chaps....Remember Bannockburn.... err... Cromwell's march through ...oops. Tone says good luck and stand by for the Reception at Number 10 if you win and capture the hearts and secure the votes of 4 countries."
More accurately, I'd love to have been in the room for the 10 minutes or so after he left it.
