Is Michael Connarty Listening?

I read an interesting article in today's Sunday Herald relating to the fallout in the Labour Party following Dunfermline. It was made all the more interesing my the following comments from my opponent in May last year Michael Connarty the MP for Linlithgow and East Falkirk:

"Tony Blair’s 'illiberal' views cost Labour the by-election. There was a general feeling that people wanted to tell Labour they were getting it wrong. The Iraq war, sending troops to Afghanistan and civil liberty issues were all coming through."

It will an interesting week for me watching the Parliament Channel. If he really believes that Blair's civil liberty issues are wrong and illiberal as he seems to imply in the article then he should be with Willie Rennie and the 62 other Liberal Democrats in the same lobbies on Monday and Wednesday nights. First for the Lord's Ammendments on the Identity Cards Bill then the Lord's Ammendments on the Terrorism Bill.

I look forward to this week with interest.
