Never go back

It was on this day, 30 years ago, that James Callaghan’s Labour Government survived a vote of no confidence, with a majority of 24, thanks to the votes of the 13 Liberal Party MPs.

The dying embers of a Labour Government, led by a Chancellor-turned-Prime-Minister with no mandate from the British people, propped up by the third party in return for a few meaningless concessions… it could never happen again, could it?

Incidentally, Gordon Brown could do worse than try and learn a trick or two from Mr Callaghan’s easy, relaxed, honest interview style.

Oh come on Stephen. Please don’t follow the idiots down the “no mandate” road. You and your blog are better and more intelligent than that.

My Friday postings tend to be a little more light-hearted than you’ve inferred 🙂
