Psycho-Huhne Lectures Labour on How to Win

Chris Huhne is laying on the charm in his Guardian column today, praising Ed as “a decent radical with brave instincts”. His attempt at political rehabilitation continues in earnest, with the ex-con offering up views on how Labour could form a progressive coalition with the LibDems:

“There is now a potential Lab-Lib economic programme for a fairer and speedier recovery based on green investment and growth, EU influence and internationalism, help for social mobility, and investment in new town housing whose rents can improve the public finances and raise living standards. Miliband should bury Labour’s instinctive tribalism and quietly let that agenda flourish.”

We all know Huhne has a history of delusion. Reading between the lines, it seems he can see a role for himself in any future alliance.  Though Guido would love Huhne to become the poster-boy for this movement, he’s pretty sure Labour would rather take advice on “how to win” from pretty much anyone else.

      A Lab-Lib pact? Don’t make me laugh! Labour is now a party of the hard, hard left. They’re far closer to Militant than they are to the ground occupied by the Lib Dems. Anti-business, pro-mass immigration, pro-EU and intent on spending money as if it were water. They are unrepentant, unreformed hard-line socialists. If CH thinks that’s a good philosophy he’s as mad as Gordon Brown.

If that doesn’t totally disqualify him from ever being part of said government I don’t know what should.

      The BBC causes serious mental illness says:

      Harriet Harman on Woman’s hour today / McBride:

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01h9g34

      Harman said she complained to Gordon Brown, but nothing happened until the stuff came out about Nadine Dorries / Osborn’s wife.

      Harman said she felt McBride should have been sacked before and that Gordon Brown did not deal with her complaints sufficiently.

      Quote from Harman on politics:

      ‘We are not supposed to be in it for ourselves’

      – So what was the expenses scandal all about ?

      Good point from BBC:

      BBC: ‘We, perhaps naively, the humble voter, thought you were trying to run the country when in fact you were, many people within the Labour party, within the Labour government, were busily just trying to undermine eachother. I mean, it takes your breath away actually.’

      Harman: ‘Well, I think, I, it I it, is, there’s no getting away from how repugnant it was, but I think, you know, it was right at the heart of government …’

      Then Harman later says on the subject of Ed Balls, that she never complained to Ed Balls, so it is up to Ed Balls to say what he recalls.

      Harman also claims that McBride told lies about her.

      She finishes by talking about the distraction that it is now for the conference.
