          Let us hope that the signs in Egypt and Syria indicate the death of the ‘Arab Spring’ and a return to sanity over there, with the removal of ‘democracy’ from peasant nations unable to cope with it.

      OR THIS ONE?: It’s the head of “NEW NEW LABOUR”

      Hello,

      Before I give my speech on Party reform this morning, I wanted you to be the first to know what I’m going to say.

      Britain needs a better way of doing politics. And that has to start in our own Party.

      What we saw in Falkirk is part of the death throes of the old politics.

      In its place, I am determined to build a new politics, one fit for our Party, for our country, for this century.

      Here are the first, concrete steps I am taking:

      1. Our relationship with millions of trade union members is essential, but in the twenty-first century individual trade unionists should be given the chance to make a personal, active choice to become affiliated members of our Party; I want a mass membership party not of 200,000 but of many more.

      2. Because we want the widest possible range of people representing Labour in Parliament, we need the fairest possible selection process. I will impose strict campaign spending limits for candidates seeking selection and for organisations helping them.

      3. We will pick our Party’s candidate for London mayor in 2016 using a primary — a fair process open to all Londoners who share our values.

      You have my word that this reform will be thorough, wholesale and lasting.

      I believe it is absolutely essential for the future of democracy in our country.

      The plans above are just the first steps, but it won’t end here. I want to hear from you — what are your ideas for us to take this further?

      This isn’t going to be a Westminster process — this is for the whole Party to be involved in. Let me have your ideas

      I’m listening.

      Ed

        Blair couldn’t even attend his own book signing because of fears of violent protest — and that was nearly two years ago. Expect he is even more hated now. He seems to know it, because he once remarked in the U.S. about not being appreciated or liked in the U.K.

    I see Labour’s media friends are using this scandal as an excuse to big up Millitwit as a “strong and decisive” leader!!

    FFS! this scandal has shown the corruption that has been at the heart of the Labour Party ever since it’s inception!

    The relationship will never change, the unions fund the Labour Party and the Labour Party cannot exist without them.

      Point of Information says:

      Perhaps if the Union members had not been totally screwed over by Labour, who they now find they are unwitting members of and directly funding via their subs, then this would not be such a hot issue.

      It could be enough to break the Unions completely.

      Miliband is doing a much better job than Thatcher – at least she realized that the Unions serve a useful function in some areas of public life and wisely held off from the coup de grace that could have been performed fully back in the 80s.

      When Blair comes out like this you know there is a lot more to come out.

      Need to pop off and check to see what Brown’s relationship with the Unions was. I think he may have been surprisingly more in tune and keeping them at bay leading up to 2010 GE may be one of the few positive takeaways from his brief ‘premiership’.

      Perfectly suited to the job. Unable to see anyone but himself. Will fit in well in societies that blank the existence of neighbours.

      A peace envoy is someone sent in peace. He is not there to create peace. He is to maintain the situation. Just think of the consequences if they agreed over their future.

      His proven track record of causing a divided UK society on regional basis, by profession (bankers/politicians) and hand-outs, qualified him for the position.

    Gordon Brown dies and goes to heaven. When he arrives at the Pearly Gates St Peter is standing there and behind him are rows and rows of large clocks with different times. Gordon sees one of them has his name on it. It shows ten past 3.

    St Peter explains that this clock is a reflection of Gordon’s life and honesty. The better man he is and the more truthful, the slower runs the clock . A saint would show a rime less than 1 o’clock and 3.10 isn’t a bad time so Gordon can enter heaven.

    Gordon is delighted and as he is about to leave he suddenly stops and asks “where is Tony Blair’s clock”

    “Ah” says St Peter – “that is a Special One. Jesus keeps that one personally”

    “Jesus looks after it personally?” says a gobsmacked Gordon. “Yes” replies Peter. “He has nailed it to the roof and uses it as a ceiling fan”
