Margaret Beckett’s Burnham Slap Down

Asked if she agreed with Andy Burnham’s claim that Labour would have performed better under his leadership, Margaret Beckett said:

“I like Andy very much, I voted for him when he last stood in the leadership campaign, I wish he hadn’t left Westminster but he did, and nobody drove him out, it was his choice. But I think that’s an uncharacteristically¬†arrogant thing to have said, and perhaps a bit unwise.
