Alistair Darling on the Brownies…

“It would be wrong to claim that there was a plot to get rid of Tony Blair; there was no plot. A plot is secret. This was an open campaign, and as far as the Brownite cabal were concerned, you were with them or against them. It was a fairly brutal regime, and many of us fell foul of it.”

    So all the denials of the Brownites such as little Miliband and the Balls household were just lies and more lies. And what jobs do these disreputable people have now?

    Um, where is the infighting that “Ed isn’t strong enough to deal with?” The infightning was between Brownites and Blairites exclusively, the latter of which are no longer even represented in the Commons anymore.

    Still blaming the bankers.

    Not a peep about the idiots who borrowed more than they could repay and defaulted on the debts.

    Not a peep about his debt and spending addiction.

    Marr does the usual biased bbc and doesn’t ask the obvious.

    Why should we pay more and more for less and less from the government?

    Why should children be born into debt because Darling couldn’t stop spending?

    Is there anything about why Darling suddenly decided after 25 years or so to resign from the Faculty of Advocates?

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
