Don't Vote For Milburn


It's always good for a politico's standing when he/she has websites devoted to slagging them off. Milburn has a real goody called Don't Vote For Milburn.

The site is obviously a work of seething anger, but it's unclear whether it's written by a Tory or a seriously pissed off real Labour type:

"Alan Milburn has never had a proper job, he quit his doctorate at Newcastle University and went into politics via the Days of Hope bookshop. He knows nothing of the difficulties ordinary people face in their work. Consequently, he finds it easy to strike macho poses and criticise others. He has a reputation for being a party timeserver who would shaft anyone and adopt any policy to get on in politics. In the words of one former labour MP "Alan Milburn ..... is a strange type who copies the Prime Minister's body language and management speak. I am never sure whether he does this to curry favour with the Prime Minister or whether he simply does it naturally like a chameleon."

It also quotes the words of a senior female Labour minister "He is one of the most macho politicians around. He is laddish, he is bullying and he is arrogant. He is not my cup of tea at all" "This is the guy who said he was giving up his job as Health Secretary last year to spend more time with his family - pull the other one"

All good stuff- go and take a look.

Oops. If that's true, I apologise for helping to scupper David Davis's leadership bid in my former role as editor of the Conservatives Against Cameron's NewLabourisation blog.

The site on Milburn is petty, rabid, deeply unpleasant indeed offensive, unjustified, personalised, underhand, nasty, destructive and I can't tell you now much I enjoyed it.

I thought it was great, and most of the complaints against Milburn seemed to me adequately justified by the information there presented.

I'm trawling round to see if there are other such supportive sites for the other runners.
