So, Chris Grayling has declared that parts of Britain are ‘like The Wire‘. Interestingly, BBC Two are now showing series 5 of that, where we see that a smooth-talking politician who was elected on a promise of change and a ‘new day’ turns out to have no answers to a crippling financial crisis other than cuts, cuts and more cuts.

In the same spirit, I’d say Chris Grayling is like Party Animals – poorly researched and unconvincing.

UPDATE: It turns out that Grayling has only seen a few episodes from the first series, so he may in fact not own a TV. So please regard this post as being titled ‘Gotta keep David Davis way down in the hole’ from now on.
