A familiar face and a familiar argument

LEFT-WING blogging machine Political Scrapbook plays hardball with Conservative MP Nicky Morgan this afternoon, arguing that an irked tweet about changes to her constituency hospital amount to hypocrisy when contrasted with national government policy. It’s another story about a tweet which probably wouldn’t have been ok’d by central office’s press office had they seen it before the send button was pressed. Still, Hazel Blears springs to mind when reading it. They all do stuff like this, don’t they? 

Those with long memories will remember Nicky from her impossible tilt at Islington South at the General Election in 2001. She was later elected in Loughborough among the Conservative Party’s incoming two thousand and tenners. A few Tories in the north of Camden know her well too. I was told many times she once lived in a very nice road in West Hampstead. My reaction to that was always: why didn’t the party ever let her do a stint as a councillor at the Town Hall?
