MARY BURNS AWARDS
DAY 9

THE `ERROR OF JUDGEMENT' AWARD

This MARY goes to the person who has made the biggest `errors of judgement' in 2009. While the queue of potential winners would stretch from Little Hulton to Lower Broughton, and include virtually everyone in Salford's regeneration industry, there can be only one supreme winner…with some supreme `errors of judgement'.

Ladies and Gentlemen.  The `ERROR OF JUDGEMENT' AWARD…goes to…

HAZEL BLEARS

Yes, it's another gong for Hazel, who is cleaning up in this year's MARY Awards (well, if she can't find receipts she's going to have to get the mop out herself)...

Hazel was guilty of some spectacular, almost Government shattering, cock ups this year - or as she likes to call them, "errors of judgement"…

ERROR OF JUDGEMENT 1 – A KNIFE IN THE BACK FOR GORDON

The first "error" was stabbing Gordon Brown in the back, by resigning from the Cabinet on the eve of the European Elections last May… "I bitterly regret that" she told the gathered Labour Party grandees at her re-selection meeting in June "I did not genuinely appreciate the scale of the firestorm that would be caused by my decision to inform the Prime Minister of my intention to step down…"

Of course you didn't, Hazel…Why would resigning from the Cabinet on the eve of a major election cause a `firestorm'?

ERROR OF JUDGEMENT 2 – ROCKING THE BOAT BROOCH

"My second error" Hazel added "was to wear my brooch. I just wanted to go with my head held high, putting a brave face on things – that's how I was brought up to deal with difficult situations"

A bit infantile, wasn't it Hazel? No? It was an "error of judgement"..."in hindsight"...

Ladies and Gentlemen. The `ERROR OF JUDGEMENT' AWARD goes to…

H-a-a-a-z-e-e-e-l-l  Bl-e-e-e-a-a-a-a-r-s-s-s-s


Applause…
