Why it is necessary for Michael Howard to fail
There are times when I think I should rename this blog, "I read the Guardian so you don't have to".
Today's edition, however, has an outstanding article by Timothy Garton Ash on how Michael Howard has denied his immigrant heritage and the trouble this denial would cause were he to succeed.
In order that Britain should continue to be a place where the children of immigrants can rise to the highest places in the land, in order that thousands of future Michael Howards should be able to succeed, it is necessary for this Michael Howard now to fail.Although the one immigrant I'd be happy to send back is Lynton Crosby.
