Ed Miliband Labour Leader spoke this morning with force and conviction:
“Today marks two weeks since we found out that Milly Dowler’s phone had been hacked by the News of the World.
Rebekah Brooks has been arrested, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner has resigned.
Tomorrow we will have some of the most important select committee hearings in modern times.
It feels that everything has changed.
But the real risk remains that too little will really change.” Read on…..
Close reading of his speech reveals a barley disguised call on Cameron to resign and clear messages for his own side, at least perhaps for our very own Denis MacShane it would seem!
Watching Parliament this afternoon, well it’s better than the awful alternatives available during the day, Labour members were well represented but the benches were far from full. The television director and the Speaker seemed to be assisting in making sure that Denis’s position in the outer reaches of the chamber of the Commons, could be easily identified, even to a casual observer. An apparently insignificant thing you might think? But this replete with significance!
Denis MacShane has been pushed off the Labour benches and is now to be actively shunned!
After all, Ed could hardly have said what he said this morning, and to have allowed MacShane to take a seat amongst them, this afternoon!
The Police investigation into MacShane’s expenses, in contrast to the hacking scandal, has taken nine months without revealing any results.
It is most important that this little bit of left over Labour sleaze, greed and perhaps worse, was brought to an end as expeditiously as possible.
During the very early part of recess would appear to be a convenient time for them, if the Police are not to be accused of deliberately dragging their heels?
Justice delayed must not result in justice being denied!
