We’re really expected to believe this BS? March 5, 2006

“Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell and husband David Mills are to separate, it has been revealed.” [source]

Sure. Frankly, the phrase “politically expedient” hovers in the air like a big green neon arrow.

But oh! Forgive my crass insensitivity. Clearly I’m just an ignorant pleb who doesn’t have a clue at the sheer sacrifices our poor politicians must make (although in this case perhaps the word “poor” is inappropriate).

“Claims that Tessa Jowell sacrificed her marriage to save her career amid a row over her husband’s finances are “grotesque”, a cabinet minister says.” [source]

Grotesque? Grotesquely inaccurate, more like. Of course she’s trying to save her career, that’s what New Labour politicians do when they’re caught with their pants down. But sacrificing her marriage? Give me a break. As Craig Murray says, expect a timely (and equally as stage-managed) reconciliation as soon as this, also, is politically expedient.
