I seem to be in the middle of a nightmare at present. The BNP are standing all over my home constituency. Everyone seems depressed where I am standing for parliament. Gordon has decided to take money away from his core vote, PPS's are threatening to resign!! When are we going to wake up!!! There is hundreds of councillors who are going to lose their seats if Gordon doesn't listen. I am asking please Gordon for the last time wake up and smell the coffee and save the party as in rectify the tax change!!!I suspect Mr Wiseman's career in the Labour Party may be shorter than he had originally envisaged.
PPC Westmorland and Lonsdale
Another man whoe career prospects in the Labour Party have not beenenhanced today is Tom Clark. Tom who? He was a special adviser for four years and has written the most superb article in today's Guardian. Read it in full HERE. If you;re not tempted by his conclusion, you should be!
There are times when a prime minister is put on the spot, and he has to decide in an instant which side he is on. Surrounded by Chinese security guards recently, Brown stood next to the Olympic torch but refused to actually hold it, a scene that made plain that the frontman part of the job is better done by intuition than calculation. Such ineptitude could be forgiven if Brown were prepared to stand up and fight for the policies he believes in. But less than a year into his premiership I am starting to worry that the fog of fear has thickened to the point where he could struggle to chart a course through it. To quote another of his favourite lines for closing meetings, "I'm afraid it's all very difficult."
