My party right or wrong

11th May 2001 at 01:00
The Guardian At the moment the Tory party is even worse than Labour propaganda suggests. Even with Jack Straw replicating Michael Howard's legal "reforms" and David Blunkett breaking his promise to extend comprehensive education, th ideological gulf betweeen the parties is vast. Labour has been dragged to the right. But it is the Tories who did the dragging. It is worth getting Tony Blair in just to keep william Hague out.

Roy Hattersley, May 7
