Quote of the Day

    Lord Bowden of Middlesex says:

    You sound suprised!

  2. 2

    Seem to remember his Holiness Tony Blair saying he would think about introducing AV in 1997… right up until the point that he spun himself to a landslide election win and promptly binned the idea.

    Same reason Cameron supports FPTP, except Ed’s not as good at lying.

  4. 4
    Ivor price says:

    Must as usual think the public have forgotten him recently on the YES campaign saying that FPTFP has kept the Tories in power for so long – even after it kept Labour in power for 14 years.
    Today I heard on PC Woman’s Hour of a Lady in the Lords trying to exist for a week on pauper money of £1 a day, and also operating a soup kitchen in Westminster but she shops at Tesco (with research at Lidl).
    These loonies have no cognizence of the real world – to paraphrase, they know the value of nothing nor the price of anything.

    Anon E Mouse says:

    In The Grauniad, Milliband the Younger’s answer was

    “We should have done.” He argued for putting a commitment to an AV referendum in the manifesto. But it didn’t happen earlier because Labour had “too big a majority”.

    As we all know both are the reasons neither Labour or the Tories want AV and even less AV+ & PR (STV).

    It doesn’t take a whole lot of cynacism to infer that the reason the ‘debate’ has turned into a slanging match is to avoid a real discussion over our representative democracy and maintain the status quo for the political cabal in the Westminster Village.

    I could hear the cat meowing as it was let out of the bag on R4.

    He’s rather gaff-prone, isn’t he?

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
