Another day, another shrug.
Reuters tells us Brown shrugs off slump in polls. Gisela Stuart, Labour MP for Edgbaston writing in the Evening Standard accused the Prime Minister of betraying the trust of voters by refusing to hold a promised referendum on the EU treaty. The former health minister said:
"It's a matter of trust and integrity. A referendum was promised. It should be delivered," she wrote in today's London Evening Standard.
"If Labour can't trust the people, why should the people trust Labour?"
Let's not forget my earlier blog about the reported unscrupulous trade allegedly being offered the Tories re: election spending caps in return for a shameless raid on taxpayers' monies to pay for party politics as proposed by former top civil servant Hayden Phillips.
Or that small matter of who should decide when a General Election is called, which is why I have signed up for Fixed Term.
