A Serious Debate, Please

Letters to the editor
Cambridge News

Dear sir,

The letter from a Labour parliamentary spokesman (News, 18th August), struggling to twist the words of a Conservative backbencher into official Conservative party policy, did politicians of all stripes no favours.

This year, Labour backbenchers have praised someone who fought for the Fascists against Britain in the Second World War as ‘a super hero,’ called dyslexia a ‘fictional malady’, and claimed that Gordon Brown was a successful Prime Minister. All of these views are controversial; but I will not pretend to News readers that the first two are Labour policy.

It is the third point, whether we have Gordon Brown or David Cameron as Prime Minister, which will be decided at the next General Election. The public expects a serious debate on this subject, without spin. As candidates, it is up to us to provide one.

Yours sincerely

Richard Normington
