FORMER foreign secretary Jack Straw has revealed the precise extent to which he is a self-regarding, cowardly little turd.
In his autobiography I’m Such a Little Shit, Straw describes how he tried repeatedly to undermine Gordon Brown but never had the courage to actually do anything about it.
He said: “Time and time again I went around saying Gordon is rubbish and someone who isn’t me should definitely challenge him.
“And then, as if I was not under enough pressure, I had to make the brave, tough decision to emphatically deny everything that I had said, while making it clear that challenging Gordon was just plain wrong.
“I somehow summoned the strength of character to tell those hard, tough lies. Probably because I am an international statesman.”
He added: “I would have been a great prime minister. Everyone said so at the time and because of that I saw no point in actually doing it.
“Knowing that I would have been brilliant at something if I had tried has always been good enough for me.
“I’m such a fucking piece of shit.”
