Labour's Legacy Love In

Well it wasn’t quite the Rose Garden, but Chris Huhne and Sayeeda Warsi’s joint press conference this morning was certainly surreal. Gone are the days of their Question Time spats. Today they were united in one cause only – slamming Labour:

They are demanding that the Labour leadership contenders who were in the last cabinet give back their severance pay, turning Labour’s banker-bonus-bashing rhetoric on its head. The odds of this happening are minimal, but it makes for a nice grenade to lob into the leadership election. Bouncing questions on whether these gigs would be a permanent fixture if the two parties moved toward some sort of electoral pact, it was very much a love in, but both were constantly reminding the audience that they were two parties coming together in the national interest to fix the mess created by one party.

Talking of elections, Guido was most upset not to have been given the chance to put to Chris Huhne the questions he has been avoiding for the last few weeks.
