Lots of Questions – One Answer

When Labour asked us to email Tony our questions Guido was wary. But I did, now I find that no one apart from a few trustees at Labour’s spring conference got an answer. What was the point of sending Blair questions if they weren’t even read? Guido didn’t expect them to be answered by Tony himself, but did expect a response from a party worker or a computer parsed auto-response. The thousands of questions elicited the same reply, the email address got added to Zack Exley’s database and the question itself were trashed.

Typical New Labour gimmick, just like the Big Conversation which strangely missed the characteristic of a conversation – a two-way dialogue – and was more a photo-opportunity.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
