Watching the BBC Politics show today, I'm struck by Labour's latest 'mantras', as delivered by Cabinet Office Minister, Ed Miliband. If you were watching too, then you may have remarked at the number of times he repeated "Shining through" in regard to the Prime Minister's strategy and the arrival of "New Government'; I assume to place blame for any past mistakes firmly with the 'Old Government' of Tony Blair. "Nothing to do with us mate... we're 'New, new Labour' not the old mob, you know, Blair, (Brown - oops), Blunkett, Byers, Clarke and so on!
Meanwhile, full marks to Thanet South MP, Dr Steve Ladyman, who told the BBC that the people of his important marginal constituency were "inspired by Gordon Brown's vision.'
That's the 'new' Government vision I assume?
Would anyone who is indeed inspired care to comment?
On the Turner Contemporary, it's interesting that the BBC managed to include it - at least by name -and then say absolutely nothing about it, focusing instead on the 'Towner' gallery in Eastbourne. The gallery presence in the latter town apparently adds £16 million to the local economy, which is an encouraging figure for Margate for all those looking towards Turner for regeneration.
