Any Questions
Posted Monday, 26 October 2009 at 15:29

We had a great response to the Any Questions programme.

Jacqui Smith was incredibly nasty to me when, as a new MP, I sat on my first Bill committee. I remember thinking to myself at the time, 'one day lady, one day'. As the Mail on Sunday pointed out, my day arrived.

Jacqui Smith forgot a crucial fact during the programme.

The days of untruths, spin and treating people like fools are well and truly over.

What made me furious was her assertion that the postal workers strike had nothing to do with the Prime Minister pulling the Bill to part privatise the Royal Mail.

That was an astounding attempt at a lie.

When the weak and un-elected Gordon Brown pulled the Bill he created a policy void that the CWU dived into, announcing strikes almost immediately.

For Jacqui Smith to have asserted that there was no connection was astounding and it set the tone for the remainder of the programme.
