Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Every time I see Alan Milburn speak, it makes me want to vote anything but Labour. I’m sure that’s not the intention, but I’m equally sure I’m not the only one who cannot stand this man. So why do they insist on using him in an election campaign? He can only be damaging. He is the most obivously slimy, smarmy politician I’ve ever seen wheeled out to try and win people’s votes.
