The right hon. Gentleman knows that I try to play fair in these things, but on his question about my right hon. Friend Yvette Cooper, I think a sense of humility is needed in this Chamber today. The Tory party has just got 30% of the popular vote; the Labour party got 31%. A hell of a lot of people in this country did not vote Conservative and did not vote Labour, and if we are not looking at why we do not enthuse the people, we are not doing our job.
