I don't know why I mentioned that, really. Probably just a bit of self-aggrandisation creeping in, perhaps. Because it's completely irrelevant to my highlighting today's 'The Sun Says' column. Just want to make that absolutely clear.
Crying shameThe Tories, of course, were boosted greatly by Rupert Murdoch's patronage in the run-up to the general election, and very glad they were of the support too, one suspects.
ANN Widdecombe took time off from making fools of the Strictly Come Dancing judges yesterday - and stomped all over Health Secretary Andrew Lansley.
Mr Lansley is faced with a horrific report on 19 NHS hospital trusts with "alarmingly high" death rates, 30,500 patients with "avoidable blood clots" as well as other failings - like 150 "foreign objects" left in patients after operations.
Yet what is he concentrating on? Micro-managing our lives this week with plans to cover fag packets in plain paper, banning low cost supermarket booze and urging hard-pressed firms to provide facilities for mums to store their breast milk.
They are the sort of measures you would expect from big-government Old Labour.
As former Tory Minister Ann says: "I could absolutely weep."
Yet Lansley appears to have forgotten that The Sun is the Murdoch media tool particularly aimed at working class voters. You know, the type of people Lansley's party need to recapture from the the well-constructed pervasion of centre left ideology?
This piece commanding coverage in the opinion pages of white van man's favourite read is a warning to Lansley that he is seriously screwing up here by embarrassing a high profile cheerleader. Instead of incubating the prized Murdoch egg under his ample derrière, the dopey twat is squatting, Guardian in hand, and shitting on it.
After an election campaign where Murdoch's News International convinced many a regular guy to vote for Cameron's new kind of politics, Sun readers are going to feel rather betrayed by Lansley attacking the meagre pleasures they hold dear.
It's a shot across your bows, Lansley. If your white paper tomorrow carries on with this type of anti-working man gobshitery, your stock over breakfast and tea at greasy spoons up and down the country is going to plummet greatly.
Now then. Who is more important? The rent-seeking vested interests at the DH and their array of tax-sucking quangoes and fake charities? Or the productive backbone of the country who read your current supporter Murdoch's papers?
Tuesday promises to be very interesting.
