Asking the tough questions

July 24, 2008 01:00

Lord Hattersley asks a difficult question in the Guardian:

And why do senior ministers give broadcast interviews that can be interpreted as criticisms of Brown?

Blimey, that's a tough one. Maybe, perhaps, possibly...because they know he's unelectable and unless he goes the game's up.

As Hattersely writes himself:

The cabinet should remember that if Labour loses in 2010, most of them will never be heard of again...

Er, yes. That's the point. They don't want to lose. It's the opposite of a non sequitur.
