Gordon Brown And Harriet Harman Lead On With Soul

by | 24th, June 2007

THE Labour Party has chosen its leaders. And no “yes man” in sight – Harman’s a woman:

Gordon Brown has been crowned Labour leader, promising to give the party not just policies but “a soul”.

Tony Blair said his longtime chancellor had “all the qualities to mark him out as a great prime minister” when he takes over on Wednesday.

Mr Brown praised Mr Blair but said he wanted to “change” the party to meet voters’ changing aspirations.

It follows Harriet Harman’s narrow win in the six-way race to succeed John Prescott as deputy Labour leader.

Says Gordon:

“The party I lead must have more than a set of policies – we must have a soul.

“Wherever we find opportunity denied, aspirations unfulfilled, potential unrealised; wherever and whenever we find injustice and unfairness, there we must be also – and it is our duty to act.”

Unfairness. Aspirations. Unrealised. Unfulfilled. Who can he be talking about..?
