In their 2005 manifesto:
"Labour will continue to support reforms that improve parliamentary accountability and scrutiny" (page 110)
And they were going to subject their MPs to a three line whip in order to stop constituents knowing details of their expenses?
"Stronger Local Government with local communities able to make the key decisions about their own neighbourhoods" and "People want a sense of control over their own neighbourhood. Not a new tier of neighbourhood government. (page 103)
And they intend transferring control of planning from local authorities to Regional Development Authorities? Also creating 'super councils' or 'MAAs', courtesy of Hazel Blears?
"Our economic record has finally laid to rest the view that Labour could not be trusted with the economy" (page 15)
"The choice is to go forward to economic stability, rising prosperity.....with new Labour. Or to go back to the old days of Tory.....insecurity and instability". (page 28)
Well I suppose that is true - it has finally been laid to rest that Labour cannot be trusted with the economy. So, where's the security and stability then - eh, Gordon?
