Does Margaret Beckett have a friend / relative in Sweden?

I ponder this very question as a confidence trickster of sorts has wronged a woman of 70 by stealing her identity and leaving her "on the brink of financial ruin", which sounds akin to what Mags and her colleagues have been doing to the nation.

Thus far there might appear to be no reason for me to be venting at Beckett rather than Blair and Broon, but there is one: "Armed with loans made out to her customer, the fortune teller quickly hurried down to a car dealership. In April she purchased a Mercedes Benz, which she later sold. She then went on to buy two BMWs and three caravans". (Source). The paper also makes a bid for headline of the year with "Clairvoyant conned woman to finance caravan spree".

"didnt see it coming"?

I fear not. I think she ought to demand her 'consultation' fee refunded too, given that the fortune teller probably didn't tell her she was going to get taken to the cleaners.

Shergar is way, way out of her depth as Foreign secretary. Another case of someone who should never have advanced beyond being a county councillor in one of Labour's more obscure "rotten boroughs"...

does she have a friend in uganda dont ya mean?

I suppose she engages in less posturing than Robin Cook, but that's about all I can say in her favour.

Rigger - Not that I'm aware....

Maybe she used the same crystal ball that NuLab use whe trying to see how future policies will turn out.

Stamboul Tory - I agree that old Trigger was promoted a steep elevation above her competence. Indeed, she is at the level of a county councillor who feels her dress sense and make-up are the envy of the "girls" in her department. Like Gordon Brown, her limit is a local government post with privileges like an assigned parking space and a private office with her name slotted into the door.

By the way, Gordon Brown's kid, conveniently diagnosed with something serious sounding at this juncture, in his on the same level as Dave's disabled kid.

I have a simple question.

Who cares?

I care more about the highly intelligent "working class" children who are not accorded a grammar school option to better themselves and contribute to our country.

Dave and Gordon should get together and form a commune.
