am i grumpy with new labour ?

i just had a "personal" letter from the labour party signed by someone called tracey

a few weeks ago a bloke with a mid-european accent phoned from the labour party to check my voting intentions and i expressed the view that tony blair should have resigned a long time ago and that i was troubled about voting labour again

who the hell is tracey ?

i've sent an e-mail to the address on the letterhead which reads as follows ...

i've just had a letter, headed with your address and signed by tracey, no second name, referring in the vaguest possible terms to a conversation between us that never took place

i'm quite used to the new labour party insulting it's voters collectively, but this is the first time you've managed to do it on a one-to-one level

as far i'm concerned, tony blair bears too much PERSONAL responsibility for the destruction and waste of human life in Iraq & I still consider him & Alistair Campbell to be a real & genuine threat to World Peace ... and I therefore consider you, Tracey, by association, to be in collusion with them

best wishes, if and only when you ever grow up to discover the fragile and transient one-ness of life & the universe

tristan forward
