A row has begun about whether Conservative Welsh Assembly candidate David Millar was promoting discriminating against homosexuals or just making an observation that homosexuality is a sin in the eyes of Christianity. It is now a claim and counter-claim between Millar and his Labour counterpart Alan Pugh.
But entering into the debate, which calls for David Cameron to dismiss Millar, is Peter Hain, Welsh Minister, candidate for Labour Deputy leadership, the man nicknamed the hatchet man (right) and a man with 165 Myspace friends. He gives us a fantastic soundbite in making a dig at the Conservative rebranding under Cameron:
"This is a real test as to whether your public relations respray job on the Tories means anything at all,"
Whether you agree with the comment or not it's a good line, perhaps though more widely applicable in modern British politics than Peter suggests or would like to believe!
