Rough Politics

What is happening to our politics? I don't suppose it has ever been a gentlemanly business but things seem to be getting out of hand. And I'm not referring to 'the Bill' fingering Tony's collar.

It was bad enough hearing Blair threaten David Cameron with Gordon's "Big Clunking Fist". It seems to be worse in the US. According to today's Sunday Times, when asked about Hilary Clinton's approach to her run for the White House, her campaign manager said "You don't walk into a knife fight without adequate gloves". There were some rum rumours about unsavoury Arkansas land deals when Bill was running for President. Perhaps its a family thing. Politics in the National Assembly seems very tame by comparison. Even Dafydd El and John Marek have not gone further than a war of words.
