A former Young Liberal speaks

Former Young Liberal and current Labour Secretary of State of State for Wales, Peter Hain, has warned that Labour supporters need a "serious wake up call" and must put Lib Dem policies under closer scrutiny. As long as it is our policies and not our poetry then that is OK.

Matthew Taylor MP, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Chairman, responded by saying: "Peter Hain has given the game away - Labour are running scared of the Liberal Democrats, not least in Hartlepool.

"It is Blair who has lost the trust of traditional Labour voters by moving to the right, by offering false choices in health and education, and by taking Britain to war in Iraq.

"In Labour's home territory, as well as the Tory heartlands, the Liberal Democrats are the party making gains, and the other two parties know it."

It is not exactly E.J. Thribb but it will do.
