Her dear friend, David “trial without jury” Blunkett seems to be on the verge of a political nervous breakdown and a career implosion.
Need I remind you, that this is the man who claims to value the probity of the law above all else; yet, if the accusations in the press are to be believed, he seems to have taken leave of his senses and has used his office for the benefit of his mistress (Mrs Quinn, not Nanny) rather than for the benefit of the public.
Among the accusations, flying around this weekend, are reports that during his affair with Spectator publisher Kimberly Quinn he:
- Used his position to help Mrs Quinn's former nanny (another Nanny, good grief they are everywhere!) to obtain permission to live in Britain.
- Shared confidential information with her, advising her to tell her parents to avoid a US airport hours before a security scare and telling her in advance about a police raid in Manchester
- Ordered a policeman to stand guard outside her Mayfair home during a May Day anti-capitalist demonstration
- Gave her a first-class rail ticket assigned to him for his work as an MP, and used his government chauffeur to drive her to meet him at his Derbyshire home
- Put pressure on the US Embassy to issue a temporary passport for her son in 2003
Took her to Spain for a wedding accompanied by four bodyguards and a driver paid for by the taxpayer
This will get very ugly, and Nanny is going to be highly embarrased.
The question is, do you believe that a man who has clearly taken leave of his senses should be making the law up as he goes along?
As ever with Nanny, it is a case of do as I say not do as I do!
Never mind David, Nanny will kiss it better!
