MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Howard Dean (former would-be Democrat candidate for US president) has rather surprised me this week – for the news came out that he will be helping the Labour party here in the UK.
But for most people he’s know for two things: (a) being against the Iraq war, and (b) crashing to dramatic defeat. (a) isn’t exactly the Labour party, and (b) isn’t exactly what the Labour party wants I’m sure!
So – what’s going on? Dean seemed to me to make great play of sticking to his principles on Iraq and speaking up against the war – yet now he wants to help Tony Blair’s party, the great international cheerleader for George W Bush?
All very rum…
