A Surgeon Required at Earls Court…

Joss Stone, sans head...Joss Stone seems to have got her head stuck up her own arse.

Perhaps she misheard the bit where they told her she wasn’t performing tonight. Because ‘cor blimey, she tried.

And failed.

Once of Devon, Stone now seems to have turned into an annoying strumpet of American descent. She has form. She was also the worst performer at 2005’s Live 8. She royally tanked.

Sod off and grow up, love.


Brown v Miliband? The gloves start coming off

Having been controlled by a duopoly for the past 13 years, Labour should consider jumping a generation to free itself from the negative incumbency factor that will otherwise plague the new government’s future.

Frank Field MP, writing in The Guardian today.

His suggestion? Step forward, David Miliband.

It’s a strange time for Mr Field to write this. Under a week ago, Miliband made a silly comment about Gordon Brown on the BBC’s Question Time. It looked like a schoolboy error.

There’s clearly going to be a Blairite wing of the party who look to someone like Miliband to defeat Brown. But it’s not going to happen, and luckily David Miliband is clever enough to know this.

Frank Field should be too.

They’ve obviously noticed that if you’re graduating with tens of thousands of pounds of debt, you may as well do something useful.
