Unfortunate and Regrettable
Gordon Brown has described the NUT strike as 'unfortunate and regrettable'. Funny that, because I've always thought that almost the entire history of the Labour Party is best described as unfortunate and regrettable. Things have been especially unfortunate and regrettable since 2003 when NuLabor made the unfortunate and regrettable decision to invade Iraq. Unfortunately and regrettably at least 100,000 people died as a direct result of that invasion. It is unfortunate and regrettable that NuLabor has been aiding and abetting kidnapping and torture for several years. It is unfortunate and regrettable that the gap between the richest and the poorest in the UK today, under a Labour government, is the widest it has been since the Second World War. It is unfortunate and regrettable that while NuLabor can somehow manage to find billions of pounds to spend on war and another £50bn to bail out the banking sector, it can't find enough money to pay public sector workers enough to keep up with the rate of inflation. It is unfortunate and regrettable that the party of Aneurin Bevan has become the party of Digby Jones and, worse, that oily, hairsprayed, right wing neo-liberal git, Ed Balls.
