Abbott and Portillo meet Frankenstein...

I was alarmed last night, whilst watching BBC1's 'This Week', to learn that we are on the verge of a full-blown constitutional crisis, the like of which has not been seen since the civil war. According to historian and curmudgeon David Starkey (known as Ringo to his friend), last week's literally unwarranted arrest of Tory MP Damian Green by 'anti-terrorist' police could be the first step in a descent into some kind of Stalinist purge, as Gordon Aloysius Brown attempts to silence his critics and the clunking fist gets revenge for the 'cash for honours' row.
I, for one, am looking forward to Lord Mandelson's New Model Army marching on Parliament to declare that the current economic crisis is no place for David Cameron's cavalier attitude to policy making.

In other news, George O'Dowd, better known as Boy George, was found guilty earlier today of the false imprisonment of rent boy, sorry, male escort, Audun Carlsen, and is likely to face jail-time when he is sentenced in January.
In a statement, as yet unreleased, George said: "Maybe I'm a fool but You know I'm not crazy; White boys can't control it. I'd better Come clean - I'm afraid of me. This is Mistake no. 3, but If the Lord can forgive, I'll do my Time. We're all Victims here. Do you really want to hurt me?"
