Spent Saturday morning at David Miliband’s leadership campaign event. While most of the candidates seem to be playing the ‘my shirt’s hairier than yours’ game over losing the election, David seems to be the only one with real plans and a real vision for transforming the party.
If we get the choice of leader wrong, the Tories will have a decade to dismantle all the good work of the last 13 years. Personally I think it’s essential that Labour elects him as the next leader.
In the afternoon I went with some volunteers to help out at Tulse Hill, where there’s a council by election.
It was a beautiful day. Perhaps a little too beautiful, because almost everyone whose door we knocked on was out, enjoying the sunshine.
As you may be able to see from the picture, my skin is so fair that I can get sunburned even standing under a tree. Who’d be a ginger?
