Blunkett Used to Bash Blair at PMQs

Howard unsurprisingly used PMQs to make the government benches squirm. I’m sure Jack will be less than amused to have Blunkett’s own words used by Howard to attack Straw’s Home Office “mess” and praise Howard’s own tenure as Home Secretary.

Usual japes about historic Tory failures unemployment, interest rates, Suez etcetera. Howard turned Blair’s bandwagon jibe against Blair. Blair signalled they won’t be outflanked from the right on home owners’ rights to defend themselves.

Howard will have to toughen up the stance even further. Howzabout a “right to kill” policy for homeowners? Its surely the next step.
