Honest and decent Labour councillors who hate Blair as much as the rest of us do are going to get a hammering. It's a shame.
But I won't vote for anyone on the Labour ticket so long as the Butcher of Basra is leading the party.
And anyway, the local Labour candidates are stupid; they put a leaflet through my door bearing the soiled and shamed 1997 slogan "New Labour; New Britain"- a reminder of just how squalidly our dreams have been betrayed.
Blair lied to take us into the Iraq war. He should have been hounded from office long ago. He should be in prison.
