Hazel Blears’s appearance on Marr provides yet another example of how Team Brown likes putting up women on TV when it's in real trouble; perhaps, it is because the women have more guts. Anyway, she was making the case for state funding. "Politics does cost money" she says, and if the public will not supply it voluntarily it evidently follows that it will be taken from them under pain of imprisonment under the tax system. It’s an appalling proposal, which the Tories should reject outright. I hope there is consensus under the £50k cap.
