Polly: “Labour Weren’t Very Good at Blowing Their Own Trumpet”

There’s an hilarious report of Polly Toynbee’s appearance at the Edinburgh Book Show over at Total Politics. Though she pines “nostalgically for the good old days of Blair and Brown”, apparently the last government were only worthy of a six out of ten in her view. She apparently had some hard hitting criticisms of the New Labour machine. Not the debt, deficit, moral bankruptcy or rank corruption that the project racked up, rather their lack of spinning skills:

“Labour weren’t very good at blowing their own trumpet.” 

UPDATE: Polly’s declaration that “left-wing people are more intelligent, and just generally better people” has caused some splutters too…
