Former Labour MP Alice Mahon is someone who’s career I’ve followed every so often as she battles with the New Labourites under Blair, and so I found her resignation from UK Labour of some interest. I’ll let her speak for herself, and I advise people to read this bit on the BBC (I’ll see if I can find a copy of her entire statement as well). But I think it certainly gives voice to alot of the concerns amongst traditional labourites, many of whom were hoping Gordon Brown would somehow be radically different from Blair. Many lefties like me warned that Brown and Blair were practically identical, just Blair had a greater charisma. There may even be some parrallells with Bermuda too.
