    ‘Big fairies’??? How very dare they! ‘Big fairy’ is one thing I’d never associate with ‘Big Eck’.

    On the other hand, I’m reminded of blogger Sturdy Alex’s comment that occasionally at PMQs Cameron reminds him uncannily of a third rate drag act trading insults with a rowdy audience.

    NB: In the light of the Observer’s problems with Julie Burchill, perhaps I should add that that comment is anti Cameron rather than anti drag acts!

The former PPCs, who stood seats across London and the south-east, the Midlands, Scotland and Wales, said Labour needs a leader who would be seen as a “credible Prime Minister” with a vision for the whole of Britain.
