Dizzy latches on to a metaphor his hero John Reid adopts in today's Guardian by way of explanation for the events, dear boy, events which mark his challenging Home Office tenure.
Reid has bravely stopped the papering over the cracks action of predecessors and is stripping the walls bare. Hopefully clearing the decks of shirkers and dodgy cover up merchants..
Perhaps Mr Reid is now through the hurriedly applied Clarke veneer, the rather thick Blunkett artex, and the Straw man layers. Is he now through the extraordinarily thin Tory conceits and down to their out of the Ark dodgy Wattle and Daub technology?
