Couldn't happen to a nicer fellow

Poor old Liam. He's not a member of the ruling clique. They won't allow him to join in their games; they won't talk to him; and they snigger behind his back. And he'll be sacked at the first opportunity. But Liam will go down fighting. The Independent reports:

Liam Fox, the Defence Secretary, hit back yesterday at reports that he had been "frozen out" of talks in Whitehall over the military onslaught against Muammar Gaddafi's forces.

He also strongly denied accusations of tension in his working relationship with General Sir David Richards, the Chief of the Defence Staff.

He broke off from negotiations in Brussels over the full transfer of command to Nato for the military action in Libya to dismiss the claims. The minister rejected charges he was playing only a peripheral role in planning the action as "tittle-tattle", insisting he was working very closely with David Cameron.

Translation: I'm important, me, I matter.

Childish, isn't it?
