Why Gordon Brown should be voting for Jeremy Hunt tomorrow

Gordon BrownYesterday, at the Leveson Inquiry, Gordon Brown declined to take responsibility for the activities of his special advisers.

Tomorrow, Parliament debates whether Jeremy Hunt should take responsibility for the activities of one of his special advisers.

So I think we can work out which way Gordon Brown will be voting tomorrow, can’t we?

    Because it will take attention away from all those LibDem MPs who cannot decide?

  • Mark, this piece should have been headed ‘Why LibDems will be voting against Jeremy Hunt tomorrow’.
    If this party is seen to have saved Jeremy Hunt it seems it cannot be saved from itself.

    I can vaguely understand the hypocrisy angle here, but not really. Since when does LDV care about Labour’s internal interfactional wars? All parties are afflicted by factional conflicts, clashes of ego and briefing. Jeremy Hunt, as a Secretary of State, has been directly or indirectly involved in unprofessional conduct with regard to BSkyB. Apples and oranges.

  • “Tomorrow, Parliament debates whether Jeremy Hunt should take responsibility for the activities of one of his special advisers.”

    No tomorrow Parliament votes on whether to ask the independent advisor to decide whether or not the Ministerial code was broken. Independence, openness clarity, things the Lib Dems I voted for said they believed in.

    There is clearly a need for an investigation. Abstaining is an easy way out. I’m very disappointed with Nick Clegg. I hoped he might have an impact on this coalition.
