Clarke coming out well here, straw sinking in front of an unusually perceptive audience. So far.

Snatching defeat from the jaws of a populist victory here from labour, hilarious.

again, I'm suspicious KC's gaff was deliberate for some subtle reason, don't know if he was setting up Labour somehow.

What an earth has happened? Even the pro Clarke probation officer in the audience, got a round of applause. Heads will roll at the BBC for this!

I can only assume the coach load of Unison members must have broken down en route to the Scrubs.

That would be a dangerous game. I don't give them that much credit, this could have easily led to Clarke resigning, it was getting out of control. Been saved tonight i think.

You'd think he'd have chosen an easier topic to talk about if that were the case surely?

I've heard numerous radio phone-ins today that consisted purely of rape victims telling their harrowing accounts, and non of the hosts have even hinted at what Ken was trying to say.

Yes but i Ken Clarke gets this level of stick, noone would argue in support, and if they were even relevant, would anyone broadcast it?.

A bit like trying to argue against equality, diversity, wars etc.

maybe

but of all the senior cabinet members, Clarke has little to lose career-wise, and also sufficient talent/experience to pull somethign like that off; I suspect I am wrong but I thought it was an idea

He was just lazy with his words. We all knew what he meant. The problem is he was talking about a crime that ranks as just about the most serious. The justice secretary cannot be lazy in those situations. Unacceptable.

Not a sacking offence though. He's apologised. He's clearly sincere. I don't think any politician would want to make the mistake he did yesterday.
