Long forgotten political alignments seem to be bubbling to the surface in certain quarters - see this article in the Times saying Beckett, Hain and H Benn "have all expressed private reservations about extending or replacing the Trident missile system".
I'm prepared to bet quite a bit Ms Harman will also jump on that particular bandwagon.
All helps me decide who not to give my lower preference votes to in the Deputy Leadership election.
And makes me feel very uneasy about what shallow roots the sane Labour project has amongst some parliamentarians. Being pro-nuclear deterrent isn't even after all a Blair era change - unpicking this is going back on a pretty basic policy change enacted by Kinnock as long ago as 1988.
Anyone would have thought some of these characters were actively wanting a period in opposition.
