... if you dare!!
I had already read Stephen Pollard's post about the background to some of the quotations in his recent biography of David Blunkett, but this splendid post by Dave at backword has prompted me into making the comment I didn't have time to make earlier. My reaction - shocked, but in no way surprised. Indeed I referred to Blunkett as a 'bully and a cheat' long before it was known how Lord Stevens would characterise him in his own memoirs - it pleases me greatly to have confirmation that my judgement of this odious individual is by no means unique.
