The Long Goodbye

And isn’t it just. A whole Amazonian rain forest is being chopped down as I type this in preparation for the reams and reams of ‘the Life and Times of Blair’ supplements which will be inserted into every newspaper over the next week.


This is a non event. It is hard to write anything even vaguely interesting, never mind profound! We all knew it was coming and we all knew he was hanging on until the tenth year. We all know it’s going to be Gordon Brown and we all know exactly what has happened during the Blair years because we have all lived through them. They included a few wars, terrorist attacks, the destruction of the NHS, the death of a princess, and, an expert witness.


The big story has to be: how is Gordon Brown going to shake off all of that and sweep in with a new broom? What is he going to do with the New Labour project that will wipe off the Blair fingerprints and make it his own?


It’s going to be a very interesting few weeks.


Yesterday afternoon, I saw David Milliband sitting with Trevor Kavanagh for a couple of hours in the Pugin Room. It would have been too late for Kavanagh to get the copy into the Sun for today. Bet it’s in tomorrow so that’s the first paper I am going to buy in the morning!


Kavanagh is the best political journalist around. He can say in 20 words what another journalist says in 200. He has to. He writes for the Sun, it has to be read in a tea break!


It will be the first Sun I have bought since Hillsborough.

It's the long yawn ok. Glad he's gone though. I knew it was coming, just never thought I would see the day.
