A small worm turns

In September 2005, I wrote a blog entry about the ejection of an 83 year old man from the British Labour Party conference during a speech by Jack Straw. I was incensed that such a breach of civil liberties should occur.

I’m glad to say that the worm has turned and that the members of the Labour Party have now elected the man, Mr. Walter Wolfgang, to the party’s national executive committee. Mr. Wolfgang has pledged to campaign for an immediate ceasefire in Lebanon and a withdrawal of British troops from Iraq. He also wants Blair to quit as leader. How delightful and I hope that Mr. Wolfgang becomes a constant thorn in Blair’s side.

Good on ya, Walter, and here’s to your long life and good health.
