Slightly odd question

Have we ever had a Leader of the Opposition who has put his ex-girlfriend in charge of the condoms as Shadow Health Minister?

Before that is.

Still, at least we know he’s appointed one person with experience of the job.

  1. As someone said on Twitter, she’ll have to respond to the Government’s obesity strategy in a few months.

    Given the general lack of self awareness of politicians it shouldn’t be a problem.

  3. Well, I’m not sure about Leader of the Opposition, but Edwina was a Health Minister while Major was Chief Whip (a position you would expect to have a degree of influence on the PM’s choices for the appointment of junior ministers.)

  4. Brexit: the people voted and they got it wrong.
    Corbyn: The (Labour) people voted and they got it wrong

    At least our London lords and masters are consistent. They really are just so much better than us troglodytes and morlocs, we should listen to them, preferable as we hang them from the nearest lamp posts.

  5. Loving the Labour fallout.

    Two lefties in my office were wringing their hands about it. I mostly left them to their grief, but couldn’t resist saying that who the UK really needs leading trade negotiations is a committed Marxist who thinks Venezuela is a model to aspire to.

  6. Bloke no Longer in Austria

    Surreptitios Evil !
    Bloody Hell ! It took me years to expunge that vision from my consciousness. For years after the story broke, every time I closed my eyes all I could see was Major and Curry together “Oh, oh Edwina…”
    Therapy, operations, electric shocks… and now you’ve buggered it all up…sob…sob…

    “I can’t wait for Abbot to lecture the masses about obesity. It will be marvellous.”

    She got some practise justifying sending her son to private school. I can’t find the politics today video that Guido put up, it was priceless.
