Alistair Darling reveals all

Bitterness is so very unseemly.

This weekend Alistair Darling has managed to personify this most unpleasant characteristic.

Extracts from his memoirs on his time as Gordon Brown’s chancellor which are being serialised in the Sunday Times reveal just how much opprobrium he has been harbouring against the former Labour prime minister since he left office.

And, just in case anybody failed to get the message Brutus, sorry, Mr Darling ensured the blade penetrated as deep as possible by articulating how “hurt” he was to Andrew Marr this morning.

If his intention was to humiliate Mr Brown and provide the Tories with ammunition they can dine out on for a while, then he has succeeded.
