This blog is turning into Bridget Jones’s diary for the duration in as much as I have lost 3lb. Again yesterday two hours delivering leaflets. Normal paperwork, email and phone to race through and wrote one speech.
I get a phone message from a colleague that Ken (Livingstone) has been attacking me in the Tribune. I knew he had had a go in the Socialist Worker. It would seem that Tariq Ali’s support has angered Ken. Of course, Ken’s old seat of Brent East fell to the LibDems in a by-election with a 29% swing – so – being Ken – he’s lashing out.
The ironic thing here is that prior to his readmission to the Labour party we were fighting together on many policy issues. It’s not me who’s changed but him (sounds like a line from a song).
