One of the joys(?) of my daily visit to the newsagent to pick up my Commie-loving Guardian is the opportunity to take part in Bilewatch, the consciousness-raising therapy which helps you to stay alert and be ahead of the game. This involves a quick scan whilst wearing radiation-proof goggles of the headlines in the right-wing press. Yesterday's Sun had a scorcher "CORBYN AND THE COMMIE SPY" I always knew it. Wasn't Corbyn the Ninth Man after all? Or was it the Eighth? Whatever. I bet Jez would have met that Czech PM if he'd had the chance. What was his name? Oh yes. Dubcek. Alexander Dubcek to be precise. But he couldn't because he was already preparing for the Winter of Discontent ten years later. Yes, let's find a photo of Jez stopping a grief-struck family from burying their dead. Hang on! Isn't that him in this picture with General Galtieri? It's a bit blurred but . . . any old rubbish will do!
Yes, I think I've identified a few themes for Bilewatch in the run up to the next general election . . .
