The Guardian has very kindly printed my letter in today’s paper:
I’m ashamed that Tony Woodley, the joint general secretary of my own union, has made an outrageous personal attack on John Hutton, one of the best cabinet ministers for business and enterprise that Labour has ever had. Hutton isn’t afraid to tackle the real issues and make the difficult and often unpopular decisions that deliver for Britain. Witness his recent announcements on nuclear power, which will do far more to tackle climate change than Cameron’s publicity-seeking bicycle stunts. While Hutton is working to improve and safeguard British workers’ jobs by grappling with the challenges that face UK enterprise, Woodley appears hell bent on returning to the 1970s and 80s.
