Alastair Campbell Reported Dead

Don't you just hate it when someone gets your hopes up?

I turned to the obituary page of the Diário de Notícias newspaper and discovered that Britain's most famous Burnley and Brel fan had spun his last. I was so stunned that I dropped my cup before realizing it was a terrible mistake.

Hmm. Even if he is dead, he's still not looking too bad for a guy of 84.

I've got a soft spot for Campbell. He was one of the worst, conniving, deceitful bastards in Blair's Gang, but a time came when he had had enough of it and he 'got out of the kitchen'. Unfortunately, such sensitivity is rare in New Labour, perhaps even unique.

I read that headline in my RSS reader and almost came.

Now I have blue balls. Blue balls I tell you!

I'm with Edgar on this one - he is an utter bastard, but at least you know he's an utter bastard.

And you know where you stand with utter bastards.
