Pot, kettle, black

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith:

Ms Smith also used her speech to take a swipe at the suggestion by David Cameron, the Tory leader, and David Davis, the shadow home secretary, that Britain was a “broken society”, branding the claim “just plain wrong”.

“The two Davids. What a pair they make,” she said.

“While one was on manoeuvers with the Territorial Army, the other was plotting midnight raids on Eton’s tuck shop …

“But I’ll tell you what. Neither of them has got a grip on crime, on its causes or on its consequences.”

Ms Smith added: “Tolerance and freedom. Fairness and respect, rights and responsibilities. That’s what Labour stands for. Protecting communities and securing Britain’s future.”

While David was raiding tuck shops, and the other David was manoeuvring with the TA, Jacqui Smith fought crime on the front line, by teaching Economics at Arrow Vale High School in Redditch from 1986 to 1988, followed by a post at Worcester Sixth Form College before becoming Head of Economics and GNVQ Co-ordinator at Haybridge High School, Hagley in 1990, later being elected MP for Redditch at the 1997 general election (Wikipedia).

She is zero-tolerant of anti-social behaviour and its causes, burglary, drug and alcohol misuses, the Pope isn’t Protestant, and bears relieve themselves in wooded areas.
