Something of the night about my train

Truly, we are honoured! Your humble Devil's immersion in the world of
the Tory political mainstream has begun even before I have left Euston.

That's right, ladies and gentlemen, only two rows away from your
humble Devil sits erstwhile Conservative leader Michael Howard, and
his wife.

And gosh! we're only in cattle-class...

1. You fucking pauper

3. Go Paxman on him ""Did you threaten to overrule him?"

Howard is alright by me. He made a better fist of the home office than most others, and was a million times more effective than the ZNL crew.

And Mrs Howard is wonderful.

With the benefit of hindsight, I think many people would agree that Mr Howard was not such a bad Home Sec. He would also have made a better fist of being PM than Mr Brown. More people in England voted for Howard than Blair at the last outing so I am not in a minority of one on this.

Erstwhile indeed, hence cattle class.

How the mighty are fallen....

Or more likely unsworth, party political, no expenses, cattle class.

You can be sure if this was a work related trip it'd be cushioned seats for his arse on us.

ok , so you saw him
and his wife,
but did you actually see a reflection in the window

The very model of a modern scientific man

Your humble Devil was thoroughly amused by Neil Ferguson's fall from grace, and is very pleased to have found the time to outline Fergus...
