GREAT to see that some Labour Party traditions never die. For instance, the tradition of shouting heckles that are completely irrelevant to the discussion taking place.
A friend tells me that at a fringe meeting yesterday on the subject of the US elections, Hilary Armstrong was in the chair and announced that she would take contributions from the floor, but that at least one in three would be from a woman.
So a bloke who managed to grab the roving mic responded: “That’s completely wrong.” And when Hilary, rather sensibly, defended her approach, he shouted: “That’s bonkers!”
A pity he didn’t use the opportunity to ask a question about the US elections. But every fringe meeting has someone like that in the audience. Adds colour, in my view.
