Never mind Britney and Kevin, the really turbulent relationship stuff is here.
In 1994 Tony Blair and Gordon Brown purged socialism when they forged the New Labour project: Clause Four was indeed an archaic nonsense. This week Brown and Darling all but killed off social democracy too.
It was only a couple of months ago that a new age of plutocrat-bashing was dawning. Then the first small doubts on honeymoon. Now this could mean irretrieveable breakdown.
I'd watch out, Gordon. Hell hath no fury like an unsatisfied Ms Toynbee.
