The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Spin Spin Spin

There was a fascinating article in the Sunday papers by Margarette Driscoll, about Anthony Seldon, The Headmaster of Brighton College, and political biographer. Apparently in an article he had mentione dthat there were tensions between Blair and Charles Clarke (well would you believe it!). As soon as the article was published Downing Street started briefing about how inaccurate the piece was even though Seldon had interviewed key people from No. !0 and even Government Ministers.

To me this highlights the fact that the New Labour project really doesn't like to accept any criticism. But do they think we are niaive? Are we really expected to believe there are no tensions between Ministers? That Tony and Gordon are best buddies? That already within the Labour party they are preparing for a handover to Brown which puts Blair in a weakened position?

Come on guys - we all know the power struggle taking place within New Labour is undoubtedly on a grander scale than that within the Conservativ party - and they are actually having a leadership election!
