Rather in the manner of Tony Blair's recently reported fan letter of 1982 to Michael Foot, Neal Lawson of Labour's most self-aware faction, Compass, has humbly and self-effacedly scribbled a missive to the Prime Minister telling him how to run the country and including a helpful quote from Ghandi - http://www.compassonline.org.uk/news_comments.asp?n=148
He offers the comment that "We have not spoken for some time since our political trajectories diverged. " i.e. "we have not spoken since I unsurprisingly failed to become a PPC and decided to undergo a radical image change into a born-again leftie, whilst attacking all the people at No10 who were a) my mates and b) had encouraged me to set up Compass to get back at those nasty rightwing traditionalists in Amicus and the PLP".
In amongst the general diatribe, which makes Lawson sound like he is a typewriter channeling the spirit of Paul Foot and could just as easily have been cut and pasted from here http://www.poptel.org.uk/scgn/ or here http://www.cpgb.org.uk/ or here http://www.workersliberty.org.uk/ one struggled to find a single positive policy idea.
Lawson's get out clause on policy, like David Cameron's, is that a new manifesto is busy being written (by the kind of self appointed anoraks who have nothing better to do than spend their weekends at Compass conferences).
I can't wait to get my hands on this tome in a year's time.
In the mean time it would be quite funny if someone at No10 actually published a reply to Lawson saying exactly what Blair thinks of him.
