2020 Vision Thing

Guido was at the launch of Milburn & Clarke’s 2020 Vision Thing.

It is yet another “participatory” website, policy orientated, debating the future direction of the Labour party, blah, blah, blah. Yawn.

Because we don’t have many of them already do we? CompassOnline, ProgressOnline, LabourHome, LabourSpace and even PM.Gov.UK. None of the Lobby believed it, all the questions were about Gordon. All you need to know from the questions is this: despite being repeatedly asked in different ways, neither of them would endorse Brown for leader, or rule themselves out of running for leader.

Best contribution was from Austin Mitchell, he said websites were becoming “the new opium of the people”. Mitchell went up in Guido’s estimation for that, less than a dozen backbench MPs turned up and the media out-numbered them 5 to 1. This is all about stopping Gordon whatever Milburn and Clark say, Milburn was smirking throughout and his face said, you know I’m lying, I know I’m lying, but we have to pretend this is about policies not personalities. No policies were mentioned at all during the hour long press conference, no one even asked about policies.

UPDATE : Lord Hollick is writing the cheques.
