I don't want to get into the habit of this, but it needs saying: Hazel Blears is absolutely correct again.
On George Moonbat:
"Being called a coward by someone who has never dared test his or her opinions, values and personal attributes at the ballot box is always something I find amusing. You don't get very far in politics without guts, and certainly not as far as the cabinet table. Monbiot has to my knowledge never stood for office. I might have had more respect for his views if he had followed in his family tradition of service to the Conservative party, rather than joining the "commentariat" - wielding great influence without accountability."One of the best blog comments I've seen since I started writing stuff here was this one: "Philosophers have only interpretted the world. The point is to complain about it."
