Funny thing, advertising/endorsement revenue and principles. I lost all
respect for Jamie Oliver when he became a puppet of Sainsbury's, quietly
dropping his previous encouragements to use independent delis and markets
and assaults on the supermarket's pursuit of fruit/veg aesthetics and
uniformity at the neglect of flavour.
surely that particular accolade must surely go to Bliar.

Par for the course for him, I'd have thought.
Tomlinson is the guy who ripped into John Prescott when the latter said
"Look: I've got fancy cars, a big salary and a couple of large houses.
For me to claim to still be "working class" is fooling nobody." That
seemed an honest assessment, but Tomlinson's line was that "once
working class, always working class: people don't change; he's trying
to get above himself".
Then people found out Tomlinson had, in a previous incarnation, been a
member of the National Front.
At first he just refused any interview which raised the issue, then he
started waffling about how he'd been young; didn't really understand
these things at the time; it was a long time ago; he stopped being
like that, etc, etc.
Puffing BG is nothing compared to claiming he's changed entirely but
nobody else can possibly have changed over the years..
At least he's consistent in his hypocracy.
I glanced his book in WH Smiths. He said he forgot the NF when he realised
it wasn't immigration that was the root problem of the country. The NF
is/was a one issue party. If you see 1000s of immigrants flooding into your
city, and living around you, to keep labour cost down, you might do
something drastic too.
He is wrong. Millions of working class people have no connection,
especially culturally, with their working class roots.
