Blunkett in irony corner

Pity poor David Blunkett. His recently released diaries are making their way into the media with the Guardian and the Daily Mail publishing extracts and Radio 4 getting the man himself to read some on air. And so it came to pass that the latter was trailed on this morning's Today programme on that august station. He railed against the media intrusion into his life - the very media he's now exploiting for as much money as he can get his grubby mitts on - saying "I was under 24 hour surveillance". I don't think he thinks that is a good thing, which is odd as legislation he pushed during his time in office is attempting to subject the general populous to exactly that.
I'm not a fan of berating politicians for non-political reasons except where it exposes rank hypocrisy. However, on occasion I think anything is fair game when it comes to getting an odious scrote like Blunkett out.
