Backing Clare

Backing Blair have heeded some of the 'advice' given to them over the past week and revised their strategy it seems.

However, there's some who'd need a (legalised) handgun pointed in their face before they voted for Kate Hoey and they're Labour Party members (particularly the ones who lie and say they live in Streatham CLP). A few years ago rumours abounded that this was the most popular website in her Westminster office.

Kate Hoey at least thinks for herself, unlike the Blair clones who just do as they are told and vote on message 100%. The odious George Galloway would be almost worth voting for just to get rid of Oona for that very reason.

You're just trying to provoke me here, aren't you?

I am sure that Hoey's independent spirit was a wonderful discovery after being sacked as Minister for Sport. Remember, this is a woman who not only shifted allegiance in football teams, but also sides in the Northern Ireland dispute.

She may have a few rather ideosyncratic opinions, to put it mildly, but I'd still rather have a Labour MP who was independent-minded enough to vote against the Iraq war, foundation hospitals, ID cards and the anti-terrorism laws, than the invisible Keith Hill in Streatham who has gone along with everything the government has done to make themselves unpopular.

Keith Hill being a government minister anyhow.

He may be a government minister (not that you'd notice), but he could have resigned rather than sacrifice his principles purely to stay on message. If I'd known that moving 100 metres down the road was going to shift from Kate's constituency and into Keith's I might have stayed where I was!

Kate Hoey was my MP in the late 80s or early 90s in Stockwell. I remember her as independent minded long before New Labour came to power.
