After the hilarious and damning Channel 4 Dispatches programme this evening, three MPs – Geoff Hoon, Patricia Hewitt and Stephen Byers – have all been suspended from the Labour Party. More interesting than that is the decision not to suspend Margaret Moran. What on Earth could create the difference between La Moran, a clear Brownite, and Hoon, Hewitt and Byers, known as loyal Blairites and all critical of Brown’t leadership in recent months?
Let’s hope this doesn’t become a civil war for the nation’s favourite overtax and overspend party.
Update: it’s now clear that Margaret ‘Moron’ Moran has been suspended as well, but for different reasons. That’s the majority beginning to fall already.
