On Yer Bike Prezza

"Tony Blair started his speech by saying thank you and I am starting mine by saying sorry." That's how Prezza began his speech today, tackling his tough year head on with an apology. Well that's alright then. Don't worry about your abuse of office, the huge salary you are paid for doing nothing, your countless perks and your minimal contribution. See here for my views on political apologies.

It was a bit of an odd speech, which is not really surprising. He has a tremendous knack of saying the longest sentences known to man. By the end of them he's breathless and you're confused.

At least he finally confirmed that he is standing down. A little bit of a pointless thing to say since about 30 of his colleagues have already decided to run against him.

Good riddance.
