Polly and Gordon "to split"

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.
