JANET Daley is no great fan of Dave’s, but, then, she’s even less a fan of Gordon Brown. Her column in today’s Telegraph makes for interesting reading, particularly for those who believe the next election is in the bag for the Tories.
Talking of (welcoming?) Alan Milburn’s return to government, she writes:
If there is a single figure in the Labour ranks who can make the Conservatives – in their present incarnation – seem irrelevant, vacuous, indeed worse than useless, it is this former Health Secretary who is genuinely convinced of the need for more choice and competition in public services, and more real independence for the institutions that deliver them.
So while Janet Daley and I might be approaching the subject from different directions, I certainly hope her analysis is spot-on.
