Blair the ingrate

Mo Mowlam (pictured) was just one of the people who played a big part in the creation of New Labour who didn't get a mention in Blair's valedictory conference speech. Maybe he was afraid she would get another standing ovation. Should he have taken this last opportunity to express his gratitude to the contribution made by those who, like Mo, are no longer with us? More on this theme on my Labour Home Blog.

I haven't been able to get onto LabourHome for most of the day. Is anyone else having the same problem.

Yes.

As for the original post.

Yes it would have been nice for him to have thanked more people, but once you start thanking a few people, you have to start thanking everyone. He could have spent 15 minutes just listing names.
