For many years we have been assured by “sources within the Labour party” that Wendy the Paranoid Android/Ed “I can sing a rainbow” Balls/Yvette Cooper/Douglas “Miss Hoolie” Alexander (*) is an intellectual behemoth, a strategist of previously unencountered ability witha brain the size of a planet. If only Wendy/Ed/Yvette/Miss Hoolie (*) had a better position, they would cry, then Labour fortunes would revive. S/he’s much better than Jack McConnell/Henry McLeish/a bowl of shreddies/Andy Kerr/Margaret Curran/JAckie Baillie/a chocolate teapot/Tony Blair/Blinky Ben/that fake cabinet minister played by the man whose name we dare not mention/Prudence the Presbyterian (*).
Unfortunately recent events have brought to our attention that Wendy/Ed/Yvette/Miss Hoolie (*) is inept/incompetent/over-promoted/detached from the real world/lacking any meaningful contact with real people.so desparate to outflank his/her (*) political opponents that s/he has no idea what his/her (*) political principles are.
