Haskins Has it Right

Guido holds no brief for Lord Haskins, but the furour around him giving £2,500 to a Lib Dem candidate who went on to defeat a sitting Labour MP is overdone. Blind party loyalty is a bad thing – we want the best representatives, not the donkey with the right rosette.

Haskins is quoted as saying: “Personal friendship is more important than party loyalty. Danny Alexander is an old friend.”

Haskins rises a notch in my estimation. Admittedly from quite a low level.
