Charles Clarke has left politics. Or as one Tweeter pointed out, politics has left him.
Oh dear. He will be missed. How sad. Oh never mind...
Apart from anything else we in the party will miss his forceful and eloquent support in the last 18 months...
My favourite Clarke stories:
When Jamie Oliver brought in the Turkey Twizzlers and other school-dinner rubbish he gave the Secretary of State some to try and asked him what he thought. Clarke asked if here were any more. (I believe this, I was told by someone who was there).
The DfE canteen started a healthier eating campaign. Except for the one person who could force them to give him fried bread with his breakfast - guess who?
When at education he did very little, but he did close down a lot of programmes he didn't make the effort to understand. Some of them aimed at the very people he was supposed to be fighting for. A true haddock candidate.
We do'nt need No stinkin' punctyation or speelin here. I bin tole.
