The Hole Is Getting Deeper

As I wrote here a week ago, Jack Straw has written off any chance of becoming the next leader of the Labour party because of his inept handling of questions on Question Time. He's pretty much banged the final nail into the coffin with his comments about muslim women wearing veils. If this was a final attempt to get good coverage and prove what a leader he is then he's made a massive miscalculation. I think his time may be up.

Straw never had a hope of advancement - going on a Robin Cook Scholarship - from Foreign Secretary to Leader of The House leaves only death up ahead...........so I think Lord Straw of Oblivion looks appealing after the next election.
