What a fantastic letter! I've always thought that Ken was a good "wordsmith". His statement after the London tube bombings was particularly memorable - well balanced and captured the spirit well.

This letter is similarly well crafted.



Commence the countdown to point-missing idiots shrieking "Give it up Ken, you lost"...


It's a few hundred words too long - the essence can be summed up in two words, seven letters, second word 'off'. However, it does give me an appalling pun to use in a Boris Watch headline...




Now crawl back into your hole. £25 a day indeed...that's you lost you fool.

It reminds me why I miss Ken already.

He's passionate, detailed, even a little geeky, but he knows his stuff and just loathes those Tories. Yeah, it's a bit long but the point is correct. The committee IS a disgrace.

I wouldn'r agree it was petty, it's partisan. ;o)


He's certainly more cunning than a fox who has just been appointed Professor of Cunning at Oxford University.

Initially this committee was supposed to be independent and at no cost to the taxpayer.

Now it costs £50k, and doesn't seem to be so independently - or democratically - appointed.

What's wrong with using the democratic scrutiny procedures we have just, er, independently democratically elected?
