Glenda or Ed? The Sands family dilemma

LAWYER Philippe Sands QC came up with a ‘Forum’ piece about Tony Blair’s performance at Chilcott for the Camden New Journal this week. He said a few provocative but sensible things he’s said before about what should happen next.

But amid the discussion of international invasions who couldn’t be drawn to a passage in which he explained how the general election had split his family over whether to put posters up for Labour MP Glenda Jackson – or her Lib Dem opponent Ed Fordham?

It read like this:

“I think in my Hampstead and Kilburn constituency the inquiry will spell trouble for Glenda Jackson. Our own family is deeply divided. Our 12-year-old daughter has decided to go out and stuff envelopes for Ed Fordham.  That prompted her 14-year-old brother to ring up to offer help to Glenda Jackson’s office. Our house is split down the middle, the battle-lines are being drawn about who gets which window for the posters.”
