"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Paving The Way

After a morning of speculation it seems the rumours reported by Andrew Sparrow are true.  Baroness Vadera of Holland Park looks set to leave government for a post with the G20.

Some are talking again of 'rats leaving a sinking ship' but I have the feeling there's more to it.  After getting a 2nd in P&E at Oxford she went into the private banking sector.   From 1999 she was one of Brown SpAds and he promoted her to government in 2007.  In order to do this he made her a life peer at the same time.  She's another of his unelected pals who owes a great deal to his patronage.

If she does go to the G20, she may be deserting Britain but she isn't deserting Brown.  I think she's going to sweeten the path for the man who saved the world and has just been honoured as World Statesman of the Year.
