The Last Honourable Labour Prime Minister

CallaghanGuido was only 12 years old when Margaret Thatcher came to power.  The original memories have been blanketed over the decades by the re-runs of video footage.  Watching some of the BBC Parliament channel’s re-broadcast of that election day, something that came through was the fundamental decency of James Callaghan.  He came over in much the way that John Major did, as an honourable man doing his best in difficult circumstances.  Not something that can be said of his current successor.

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.”
