The Tories are, of course, using the case of Margaret Dixon as something of a stunt. But it is cynical and silly of Labour to say that this is just a stunt: Michael Howard is making a serious point, just from a human interest angle. Mr Blair should address the real problem, not just the way in which Mr Howard presents it. And, just for the record, I thought Mr Blair seemed arrogant and incredibly insincere at PMQs yesterday. Definitely a good week for Mr Howard.
