Vote blue, go blue

Fascinating to watch the reaction of shadow chancellor George Osborne yesterday during Ruth Kelly’s statement on Manchester’s successful bid for Transport Innovation Fund (TIF) money. Dismissed out of hand by shadow transport secretary Theresa Villiers, our policy was nevertheless warmly welcomed by former Tory environment secretary John Gummer. But as Gummer made clear his own personal commitment to the environment and to combatting climate change, George visibly winced. Someone on our side shouted, ironically, “Vote blue, go green!” But that’s a long-dead Tory slogan. Now it’s “Vote Blue, go blue.”
