MPs demand Labour apology over sale of Hutton report

Tory MPs are demanding a public apology from the Labour Party after it emerged members, including ministers, took part in an auction for a copy of the Hutton report into the death of Dr David Kelly which was autographed by Cherie Blair.

According to a Commons motion tabled by Peterborough's Stewart Jackson, the event took place at the Arts Club in Mayfair last week and raised £400 for party coffers.

The motion says the event was "in appalling bad taste, arrogant and crassly insensitive in seeking to make money, albeit indirectly, through hawking, as a novelty item, an official Government report into the death of a public servant".

It "regrets the distress caused to the family and friends of the late Dr Kelly; and calls on the Labour Party to apologise for such tasteless and offensive conduct and to donate the money raised to an appropriate charity".

A Labour spokesman meanwhile said it had not been a party event. "We know nothing about it," he said.

What effort did she, the red witch, make to stick up for Dr Kelly's 'human' rights?

Please don't call her a witch - a religous minority persecuted over the centuries due largely to misunderstandings and spin...............

The term parasite may be more apt. Also blood sucker, leach,

Surprisingly not a lot of people commented there either.

I suspect its because we are that used to the politicians (and wives/mistresses) of this country being such low life scum that it has become the norm not the exception. Personally looking forward to all the press having a field day and somebody asking Bliar a question in the house.
