Brown-sueded thatcherites

This from the Guardian's live TUC Conference blog...

Ken Clarke, the Justice Secretary, has been praised at the TUC. Well, sort of. Colin Moses, the national chairman of the POA, the prison officers' union, has just said this.

"It's an absolute disgrace that we had to wait for Thatcherites with brown suede shoes on tell us what was wrong with the justice system. That should have been told to us by the Labour government."

Moses was referring to the speech Clarke gave earlier in the summer.

That should further boost the Notts MP's popularity with the Tory Grassroots then.
