Having just got onto my (late) train to London, I can now contemplate the day ahead. The same journey to Westminster will be made by Labour MPs who, up til yesterday were vociferously arguing that public ownership of Northern Rock would spell the end of western civilisation as we know it. But today is a different day. So today they will argue something else, probably something along the lines of "nationalising Northern Rock will save western civilisation etc". As I said yesterday, it will be quite an experience watching these non entities eating humble pie as they try to tell everyone that when they said they were completely, absolutely, irrevocably against nationalising Northern Rock, that was clearly a message they were all in favour. Next time you hear a Labour whinger falsely claiming Lib Dems duplicity, just point the drooling Labour hypocrite in the direction of Northern Rock.
The second entertaining story we will experience today will be the court drama of the Diana inquest. Muhammed Al Fiyed will be giving "evidence" to back up his fantasies that Diana was bumped off by MI6 on the orders of the Duke of Edinburgh. As far as conspiracy theories goes, this rates alongside the claims that the moon landings were fake, the Titanic was never sunk (didn't you know it was a damaged sister ship, the Olympic, that was sent to the bottom to claim the insurance!?) and 9/11 was a plot by the CIA.
So much entertainment coming up today!
Anyway, my arms are feeling a bit strained after spending 4 hours in the allotment over the weekend. So, as usual, wake me up when I get to London.
