Swoooooooon. Did you see it? James Purnell's pin-up status in the Guardian yesterday? He had a comment piece published about New Labour needing vision and vitality, presumably of the sort he could offer. It was a masterclass in critical analysis without suggesting anything new that David "Airbrush" Cameron would have been proud of.
Disappointingly though there was no mention of the role the umbrella sector can play. I have written to James to congratulate him on his words and politely remind him of this omission. Well, I say write to him, Since the Royal Mail have been legally instructed not to deliver anything I send to him I have had to make do with posting a comment on the Guardian website. You can read it here at 8.37am on the 11th January, underneath the original piece.
