why does the Guardian focus on giving Hazel Blears a rosey retirement?


So Hazel Blears has resigned from the cabinet. Whoop-dee-fucking-doo. There have been several other resignations from the cabinet today. The most significant has clearly been Jacqui Smith's resignation as Home Secretary: The third most powerful political brief in the UK.

So, why is the Guardian focussing on Blears' resignation?

Why would a national newspaper focus on anything other than the most important political story of the day?

The Graun even goes to incredible lengths to defend the Arch-Cockweasel's retirement in graphic terms.

I fucking HATE Hazel Blears!

Amended 05-06-09:

Thanks to my anonymous friend in the comments, who pointed out that I had slurred the noble Clare Short by putting her in Jacqui Smith's shoes as Home Secretary. Not quite sure how that happened. Wishful thinking getting the better of me, maybe.


  1. I think you will find that the Home Secretary was Jacqui Smith.

    Or are you being satirical?

  2. Wow! How did I screw that up so badly?

    Apologies for the (ahem) balls-up.
