Telegraph, Wednesday 14th October 2015
The shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, tried to explain why he’d made a sudden U-turn on his economic policy – a mere fortnight after he promised Labour party conference that he would join George Osborne in committing to run a budget surplus. “I suppose I should deal straightforwardly with the issue of the U-turn,” he began. “Yes, two weeks ago I recommended that Labour MPs should vote for [the Government’s] charter – and today I’ll be urging them to vote against!” The Tories were in stitches.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
