This is our truth, tell us yours
For anyone who cares about the Labour Party the years from 2005-10 were years of pain. Tony Blair’s battle with Gordon Brown over the manner and timing of his retirement stopped Labour from getting on with the business of government and encouraged the development of private spin machines.
David Cameron has fired the starting gun on the campaign to replace him in a cynical attempt to capture the front pages on a day when Labour planned to trail its economic plans. For a short term gain Cameron has inflicted long term pain on his party.
