Lower and lower. Cheaper and cheaper.
Just heard the rumours about the Cabinet reshuffle which is supposedly going to take place tomorrow to overshadow the news of Labour's bloody nose at the local elections. It has been so obvious that it would be abused in this way way for months that it surely can't have the effect Downing Street must be hoping. The Blair administration is now so far past parody it is becoming humiliating for those involved. Such stunts now merely reinforce Labour's perceived flaws: pathetic obsession with managerialist appearances masking an underlying incompetence.
Blair would be better sticking to his General Election tactic of pre-ballot hand-wringing and blood-letting than offering further evidence of his blinding arrogance in a vain attempt to convince the electorate it's not misplaced.
