Home Secretary puts her foot in it again

What is about politician's opening their mouths trying to save their own previous gaffes and then making another one? On the weekend the Home Secretary confirmed that she was not a streetwalker, and now today, in an attempt to take her foot out of her mouth she has stuck the other one in instead. She told the Today programme this morning that it was official Government advice not to walk the street after midnight whilst stressing that we're all actually quiote safe honestly and that crime is down blah blah blah. Is this woman on crack or something? Oh no wait, she's not a streetwalker so probably not.

This 'Government of all the Talents' is fast becoming laughable. We have Peter Hain labelled incompetent by his own boss and at the same time praised as a great minister. We have Harriet Harman taking illegal donations to cover her debts. We have a Chancellor who has dithered over the biggest banking crisis for over a century. A transport minister who loses people's data, as well as a former Chancellor doing the same. And now we have a Home Secretary who tells us the streets are safe and unsafe at the same time and then issues a kind of tacit curfew on our movements?

Government of all the talentless is more apt. Frankly an X Factor audition reject has more talent than this lot.

Given their current penchant for sticking their noses into anything and everything how long before "not safe to be out after midnight" (they'd laugh their heads off in Spain about that one) turns into a curfew in selected areas?

All the talents? I'd be surprised if there was any talent!

A Government of all the spineless. not one of them will stand up to him. Boy, can he pick 'em!

But he is capable of picking his own nose apparently. I'm sure you've seen the video?

Weirdo? No, just strange, very strange!

Dizzy, Please report to me after work for remedial English lessons. You clearly do understand current usage of it.

As I point out regularly, stop oppressing me for being dyslexic and having fat thumbs on a Nokia e61. This translates to fuck off in case you were wondering.

At least an X-Factor reject has the capability to make us laugh. This lot just make my flesh creep.

I have long believed that GOAT really stands for "Government Of All the Twits"...
