Psycho-Huhne Lectures Labour on How to Win

Chris Huhne is laying on the charm in his Guardian column today, praising Ed as “a decent radical with brave instincts”. His attempt at political rehabilitation continues in earnest, with the ex-con offering up views on how Labour could form a progressive coalition with the LibDems:

“There is now a potential Lab-Lib economic programme for a fairer and speedier recovery based on green investment and growth, EU influence and internationalism, help for social mobility, and investment in new town housing whose rents can improve the public finances and raise living standards. Miliband should bury Labour’s instinctive tribalism and quietly let that agenda flourish.”

We all know Huhne has a history of delusion. Reading between the lines, it seems he can see a role for himself in any future alliance.  Though Guido would love Huhne to become the poster-boy for this movement, he’s pretty sure Labour would rather take advice on “how to win” from pretty much anyone else.

Former Governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King…

“There are arguments for remaining in the EU and there are arguments for leaving the EU. But there is no case whatever for giving up the benefits of remaining without obtaining the benefits of leaving.”
