Hard Left Jon Cruddas ?!
Andy Mayer, Lib Dem blogger writes off John Cruddas as being ' hard left'. Actually John Cruddas is responsible for putting the issue of affordable housing - to rent or buy - back on the Westminster agenda. So I say well done John ! Further, to come third despite standing against cabinet ministers past and present is some achievement. Best of all, the horrid smiley Blairite Hazel Blears came last. Excellent !
As for Harman, I think her contrast in PERSONALITY and background with that of Brown will serve Labour well. I can see her on GMTV / daytime TV on those 'sofa interviews' helping to keep lots of the 'nice middle classes' in the Labour coalition, especially in the SE.
A much more shrewd option than the favoured Johnson methinks. Write Labour off at our peril.
And, if you think Cruddas is 'hard left' then you must be pretty right wing Andy !
