How a Home Secretary reacts, or at least how this one does

David Blunkett with his usual stark honesty, and his usual stark ineptitude, tells us what he felt on hearing of the death by his own hand of convicted murderer Harold Shipman.

Anyone may blurt out things better left unsaid, on occasion, but this Home Secretary has seemed to make such a habit of coming out with idiotic statements and so-called policy 'initiatives' that one wonders if it remains wise to leave this loose cannon in post. Tony Blair so far evidently thinks so, unfortunately.
