Tom Watson lives a full life

First sentence in Tom Watson's letter of resignation to Tony Blair.

'The Labour Party has been my life since I was 15 years old.'

Really? I shudder.

At least he is honest about it and had the courage of his convictions, he deserves credit for that, it must have been hard for him. This is a story that will not go away, however much Blair wants it to, and I'm sure it will dominate the Labour Party Conference. We are in for interesting times ahead.

But what sort of person is so consumed by politics as to make a political party his 'life' at the age of 15? Not even William Hague made that claim.

These are the sort of career politicians who come to lord it over us without any knowledge of the real world.

That's what I was thinking, jay. These people know nothing but politics. No knowledge of how a business is run, or anything like that. This is not good for the country.

Just to point out that Charles Moore has also made comment on Tom Watson's declaration. In today's Telegraph, he says:

"Mr Watson began his letter by explaining his qualifications, as he saw them, for writing it: "The Labour Party," he said, 'has been my life since I was 15 years old.'

Inspection of Who's Who confirms Mr Watson's sad story. He was born in 1967. Apart from being a fundraiser from 1988-89 for Save the Children, he appears not to have done anything that anyone outside politics would call a job."


Enough said.
