Fellow blogger, Labour comrade-in-arms, Westminster correspondent of newsletter/magazine IMPACT, and good friend Kerron Cross, was understandably unhappy about my comparing him to Jeffrey Archer. Even though I was quick to point out that I was joking and that one of them (Kerron), is a good writer and is a man of probity and integrity.
He even pointed out that I looked more like Archer! Insulting, but I did deserve it, and it is true as you can see here.

And I was asking for it, esp as Archer is the sort of individual who can easily make my blood boil to the point where I feel unreasonably vindictive (towards Archer). But then he seems to have that effect on a lot of people, although I suppose I must try and be more charitable.
That said though, I was pleased to see that in his latest entry, that Kerron has mentioned that his local MP (the chap on the right) and Mike Penning (the Conservative MP for Hemel Hempstead), are 'behind bars'.
Given the fact that I was a Constituency Intern for Labour in Hemel Hepstead during the general election, and Penning ran a nasty campaign against the then sitting MP and all-round amiable bloke, Tony McWalter, I felt that there was some justice, even if it was for charity!
But then I suppose I have to be charitable ;-).
