Shaun Woodward, faithful Brownite and ex-Tory, has missed out on promotion this time, it seems, so in his honour I should like to proffer the word tergiversator.
The word, courtsey of professor Erich Gruen, means a political turncoat (lit. one who turns his toga).
Meanwhile we observe with trepidation Glenys Kinnock's simultaneous elevation to the Cabinet and the House of Lords - be afraid, be very afraid!
Now spell it........ReplyDelete
As for Glenys, has she ever had a full time job, and didn't she once try to drown Neil?
Not drown, exactly; just make him look like a buffoon to clear the way for her own inexorable rise to power - after all, it nearly worked for Hillary Clinton.ReplyDelete
Just watch and wait...
Many people have names for Shaun Woodward, somewhat shorter than yours.ReplyDelete
