Three apparently erring Newlabour politicians have finally lost their appeal to get their hearing held under the jurisdiction of the H of C. They will now have to face a jury. Curiously I can remember feeling that Morley was quite a decent guy, so whether he and the two others are any worse than the rest remains to be seen. With a maximum sentence of 7 years they will be shivering in their shoes.
Phil Woolas (detestable little man) is still giving everyone the run around, mainly due to Harriet Harman jumping the gun and stating categorically on Andrew Marr's programme last Sunday that PW was out out OUT! HH,- her of the ginger rat/squirrel insult, felt she didn't have to hear the opinions from the Labour party members first, but pronounced his guilt off her own back on national tv. That should have been the end of Mr. Woolas. But oh no! He keeps coming back. The £500.000 pension pot, and generous financial 'parting package' he'll get just isn't enough for Mr. Woolas. I expect Mr. Jack Dromey was behind HH's pronouncement, and on radio 4 yesterday he yoked Ed Milliband into the decision which was a super crafty move. NewOldLabour are in a bit of a mess and now not in any position to coherently fight the Conservatives. Ed Milliband, with a new baby screeching in his ear, Harriet screeching in his ear, and Labour mps screeching in his ear, will be enjoying his paternity leave, I don't think.
