Is It Too Early To Open A Bottle ?
David Blunkett mourns the tragic suicide of Harold Shipman.
"You wake up and you receive a phone call telling you that Shipman has topped himself. And you think, is it too early to open a bottle?
"Then you discover that everybody's really upset that he's done it. So you have to be very cautious in this job, very careful."
Blunkett really is a political genius. As long as he keeps coming up with knockabout stuff like this and attracting the 'right-wing' tag from horrified guardianistas, the Great British Public will ignore his letting all the burglars out and the 'asylum-seekers' in.
