Healthy debate

“Labour chairwoman Hazel Blears said his resignation showed the “chaos” engulfing the Tories.”

Would this chaos be the debate about the best way to help children break out of poverty? Would this chaos be the debate about how to help the people in society who would benefit the most from that help and are most deserving of it?

Graham Brady believes deeply in Grammar Schools and wants to be able to say so, collective responsibility means that he cannot legitimately do that from within the Shadow Cabinet. Had Hazel Blears said nothing the focus would have remained on the resignation but by desperately grasping at this as a stick to beat the Conservatives with she has highlighted the real chaos that the Labour party is in.

  1. She is just following Gordon’s line, James. Maybe Iain’s little chipmunk should keep an eye on things < HREF="http://tonysharp.blogspot.com/2007/05/intransigence-and-incompetence.html" REL="nofollow">closer to home<>We can expect to hear more toadying from the “non-entity” six in the run up to the vote to see who will be Gordon’s sockpuppet.

  3. James, I know you’ve a military background so you’ll feel the loss of soldiers especially hard. But, please can you raise the issue of Afghanistan, I for one, am not sure why we’re there, whether we’re carrying more than our fair sahre of the burden. In this week’s Newsnight debate, not a word about it. It’s very troubling to be losing good men, while this rotten Government save their own skins. I’ve posted about this on my Lightwater blog. Do keep on posting, because I respect your opinions and the passion you show.
