Charle Clarke: Blair's Howe?

Hmm. Just finished listening to Charles Clarke on On the Ropes (again) - always worth a listen anyway, but this one had added comedy value. From the BBC coverage, David Davis said Mr Clarke's comments were a Blairite version of Sir Geoffrey Howe's attack on Margaret Thatcher in 1990, something that Simon predicted nine months ago. Also, I really like this comedy quote:
Education Minister Jim Knight said ex-ministers "bitching" about Mr Blair were doing Labour "no favours".
Well no Mr Knight, they're not, but then, neither is tired Tony.

Are we getting there d'you think? Is Simon right, is this the beginning of the end?


:Is it possible this was timed to minimise the damage instead?
