Windswept Tom Harris Applies for Shadow Cabinet

If Chris Bryant was somewhat over-detailed in his resume – including every boy scout badge was hardly necessary, Tom Harris is going to the other extreme, or, as he puts it “cutting to the chase”. He looks manly, as he says, he can hold his own at the dispatch box. He includes pictures in his email  to prove it:

Via Labour Uncut.

    Tom Harris might be wrong about a lot of things – but at least he takes a lot of shit of people without storming off in a hissy fit.

      Because when they got in in 1997 they shelved the Tories energy review, which included the recommendation to build more gas storage facilities to even out supply, especially at winter.

      Now the Europeans have a few weeks of supply each, which really helps in winter, whereas British Gas (or whatever their trading name is try try hiding who they are), has a VERY short capacity, which showed up last winter.

      The UK has the mentality of doing the minimum possible, that’s why Labour sat on the idea of replacing nuclear power stations for 12 years.

      You’d think with the record amount Labour got from The City, the record amount they raised from stealth tax rises, and record amount of borrowing, the UK would be a better place and ALL infrastructure updated. But no, all the UK got was Labour going on a benefits vote buying binge to keep Labour in power. The UK remains a dilapidated sh1t hole.

      Labour shafted the UK good and proper, and nothing short of charges for economic sabotage should be bought against the then Labour cabinet members.
