I don't have much to say about internecine wranglings in the Labour Party, other than to say I sincerely hope (for the good of the country) that whichever side Hopi Sen
is on loses (I am always reaffirmed in my loathing for the Labour Party by the way they treat those - Sen, Tom Harris, Peter Watt etc - who appear sane and reasonable). But, in a report into Progress up on the Left Futures site
, there is a line of simply glorious, Soviet 'he who controls the past, controls the future' revisionism that I thought it deserved repeating:
The only known member of the Advisory Board is former Minister and anti-Brownite plotter Alan Milburn.
I can think of a few defining characteristics of Alan Milburn but, given what happened during the election campaign of 2005, I'm not sure 'anti-Brownite plotter' would be one of them.
