I’m reading the second volume of Chris Mullin’s diaries. Like the first it contains a lot of nuggets, personal and political.
Like this extremely accurate prediction recorded more than five years ago on Monday 21st November 2005.
Mullins is talking to ‘a Yorkshire MP’ who he quotes as saying:
‘I think we will lose the next election. The Tories will come to some sort of understanding with the Lib Dems and we’ll find that we’ve opened the door to the market in health and education.
And when we protest they will reply, “But this is your policy; you started it.”‘
I bet it’s cold comfort to that gloomy Yorkshire Labour MP that he was proven right.
