Hain Watch #1

The Secretary of State for Wales and Northern Ireland has apologised for a centrepiece of NuLabour hubris- the imposition of all-woman shortlists on constituency selection meetings. According to Mr Hain,
"The first law of politics is you listen to the people"

Strange then, when back in Belfast the same Peter Hain can state
"the government remained committed to the abolition of academic selection"

My understanding of the situation in Northern Ireland was that the people
supported academic selection.

Not so much NuLabour double-speak but rather Hain double-standards. I await his apology when wearing his NI hat.

Comments:
Perhaps we'll also get one for the 50/50 discrimintion
