Meanwhile, at the Home Office...

From the Dail Mail:
Home Secretary John Reid is under pressure today after a further series of damaging revelations in areas which are the responsibility of his department.

During another torrid weekend for the Home Office, it had to admit that more than 2,700 people had been wrongly labelled as criminals due to errors by the Criminal Records Bureau.

The disclosure came as ministers and officials continued to grapple with the fall-out from the foreign prisoners deportation fiasco, which has been going on for weeks.

To add to their difficulties it emerged that an immigration official had been suspended over allegations that he offered to help a teenage asylum seeker with her application in return for sex.

And it was disclosed that 232 foreign nationals arrested in counter terrorism operations had been allowed to remain in Britain as asylum seekers - including 18 who had only applied for refugee status following their arrest.

On Friday, new figures showed that 359 prisoners absconded from Leyhill Open Prison in South Gloucestershire between 2000 and 2006 - a rate of more than one a week.

It was later revealed that some of the prisoners who had escaped from the prison since 1999 were murderers and rapists.

And the Home Office is continuing to investigate claims that five illegal immigrants arrested after being sent to work at the IND's central London offices had been employed on the service's premises for years.
Tony Blair, 14 May 2006:
"Despite our attempts to toughen the law and reform the criminal justice system… the criminal justice system is still the public service most distant from what reasonable people want."
No shit. Resign, Blair.

I don't want him to resign. I want him to be forced out in disgrace. I want to see him and greedy, grasping Cherie leaving Downing St, faces drawn, possibly Tony's eyes red from crying. I want to see what particular outfit he chooses for his performance as a disgraced prime minister. (I see he chose a very, very, very white open-necked (no tie) shirt and lightweight suit for his Iraqi engagement today. Everyone else who wasn't military personnel, was wearing a tie, of course, but that's not dashing enough for Anthony of Arabia.) I want to see the flashbulbs go off and hear the reporters shouting questions: "How does it feel to be a disgraced prime minister, Mr Blair sir?" "Are you going to be prosecuted, sir? Will Mrs Blair be defending you?" "Do you think the Tories will win the next election, sir?"

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

I'm telling you - we will miss him when he has gone and we're stuck with that fat, one-eyed control-freak currently running The Treasury as if it is his own personal cult.

Much as I hold Blair and his cronies in utter contempt, my loathing for the Quisling-in-Waiting is far more intense.

I am sorry. I just can't help it.

Don't fret. He won't get in. All his dreams will crumble to dust and be as nought, because he didn't have the nerve to seize the day when he had the chance.

Apart from the fact that he is personally repellent and looks as if he smells, there has been enough time, now, for resentment of the Scottish raj to build up in England. Gordon's day will never come. See? Every cloud as a silver lining! Happiness is just around the corner!

Before the front page changes, check the photo in Monday's Telegraph and check the way Blair is walking, arms away from his body, hands dropped down, as though he were Gary Cooper about to pull a gun. The man is a fantasist. Britain has been run by a fantasist for the past nine years.
