    Republicans ban Labour MPs
    By Helen Rumbelow, Political Correspondent

    LABOUR MPs have been banned from the floor of the Republican National Convention for the first time because President Bush’s party says that their views are not conservative enough.
    The decision has caused uproar among Labour MPs given the support that Tony Blair has given to Mr Bush over Iraq. A cross-party parliamentary delegation traditionally visits the convention, but only Conservative MPs will be given access to the floor in New York next month.

    “This is the first time this has happened and we are far from pleased,” Alan Williams, a Labour MP and chair of the British-American Parliamentary Group, said. “I find it singularly strange that Labour MPs can be welcomed on the floor of Congress but not at the Republican convention.”

    Although this week’s Democratic convention had no objection to accrediting Conservative MPs, the group has sent two Labour MPs in an attempt to be fair.

    But their presence has been overshadowed by the Liberal Democrats, who have been exploiting Mr Blair’s awkward relationship with the Democrats. Charles Kennedy has travelled to the convention for the first time with several leading members of his party.
