All Eds are Equal

Politics Home has got hold of a letter sent to Labour MPs from Tom Baldwin with demands for clearing statements and control way beyond what even Gordon imposed. Any public breath from the invisible frontbench team must first be cleared with high command. The letter is co-signed by both Miliband and his Shadow Chancellor.

With Balls being able to hold the chains, it’s as if they are equals…

UPDATE: With Alan Johnson already outlining a central clearing process three months ago, you could argue this further reiteration of the point, this time with bruiser Ball’s stamp on it, merely illustrates Miliband’s weak authority.

Quote of the Day

Jacob Rees-Mogg on Theresa May

“There comes a point at which the policy and the individual become so intimately connected that it would be very hard to carry on supporting the person who is promoting this policy.”
