You have been the defender of the under handed practices used by Remploy management to shut viable factories.and Anne McGuire and Brown are the architects of this fiasco.

You and Gorden Brown will be out of goverment very soon,the local elections will be a disaster for you.

I would suggest that you change your web photo as it bears no resemblence to how you look now.
Image is everything regardless of substance,in that regard you are truly labour.

Mark Harper you agree with this Remploy fiasco,because if the you and that choke snorting etonion get in things are going to get worse for the disabled people of my generation
