The tragedy is that Brown finds people to actually say this tripe. There has, so far, been a striking absence of free-speaking Labour MPs (Siobhan McDonagh and a few others excepted) but seeing this script drives home the situation Where once there was a living, breathing party there is now a few hundred MPs who seem to be there just to collect the salary. They can't even take control of their own leadership. I have no love for the Labour Party but I do want them to be a fierce Opposition. At the moment, it may not even be that.
UPDATE: This was, as so much in the world of blogging, a Paul Waugh scoop originally. Guido hat-tipped him, and I humbly do so too.
