Stick to socialism is the message from LORD Prescott
I wasn't sure if the news that former Labour Health Secretary Alan Millburn would be working with the Tory / Lib Dem government was a sign of mature politics or unbridled hypocrisy. Part of me thought it was shocking that a Labour MP would be helping to implement right wing Tory policies. Then I remembered they were doing that all the time Labour was in power so it's not exactly a huge leap is it?
I did laugh, however, when Lord John Prescott criticised the move only to be dismissed by Nick Clegg who described Lord Prescott's comments as a sign of JP getting "his ermine in a twist". Unbridled hypocrisy indeed ...
