Simple Simon does a u-turn

Sion Simon, one of the traitors who called for the Prime Minister to step down, has been forced into a humiliating climbdown after his send-up of David Cameron went down as well as lead balloon.

Oh, how the not-so-mighty have fallen! :-> Judge for yourself the rather lame attempt at comedy of silly Sion and the genuine article itself:

Simple Simon's silly send-up    David Cameron's webcast

Apart from the comedic shortcomings of Sion Simon, what leaps out more than anything is the sheer hypocrisy of the man, who's had more changes of heart in the past couple of years than most people have in a lifetime.

Here are some of his most notable flip-flops:

March 2003 - Simon Says: "Let's go to war with Iraq. I love Tony Blair."

September 2006 - Simon Says: "I'm an embittered, twisted man. Tony never made me a Minister. Boo hoo! Troops out, Blair must go."

Thursday 12th October 2006 - Simon Says: "It's not the slightest bit offensive. It's just satire!"

Friday 13th October 2006 - Simon Says: "I'm sorry, it was a silly mistake."

Just hope somebody doesn't post something like that about me on their blog after reading all the comments about JM on my blog.

Kris don't worry - the left has better things to do with our time.

Blairite blogger - I agree it is shameful to see the nonentities who Blair created turn upon him, but they are only doing that because he is marginally less popular than severe halitosis and we really need him to jump into the Thames in the interests of the Party.

Surely you agree? After all, being a Blairite is hardly about personal loyalty!

Hey, call me Sham! :)

Unlike some who jumped on board the Blairite bandwagon when it was fashionable, I actually agree with his policies - past, present and future - and am not about to desert ship just 'cos the waters are rough!

So it's been reported that Blair's not as popular as he once was, but what kind of men would we be if we were to turn on him merely to further our own careers?

Were I to do so, surely such an act of hypocrisy would be exactly the kind of "careerism" you and Marsha are so scathing of!?!
