Oh dear..

The candidates for post of the deputy leader of the Labour Party appeared on a Newsnight special tonight.. and, after presenting his manifesto, the Secretary of State for Wales etc, Peter Hain, was asked by Jeremy Paxman

“And you’re uniquely qualified to be an “umbilical cord”?”

Additionally, in the course of the subsequent debate, Peter Hain answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Are you in favour of a new generation of nuclear power stations?” Nuclear Nimby, indeed.
