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.

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
