“I have declined to address the North East Pensioners’ Convention, which is full of elderly militants who flatly decline to accept that everything has changed for the better since we were elected, even though the evidence is plain as a pikestaff. A high-risk strategy for someone in what is now a marginal seat, but I don’t see why we should waste time appeasing the unappeasable.

A year before (May 11, 2006) Mullin was telling reptile Hutton that the link between pensions & earnings should have been restored! Ironically it was the Tories who were to restore the link!!
