Life in Blair's Britain

The BBC has smuggled this story out of Brighton:

The Labour Party has apologised after an 82-year-old member was thrown out of its annual conference for heckling.

Walter Wolfgang, from London, was ejected from the hall after shouting "nonsense" as Foreign Secretary Jack Straw defended Iraq policy.

Police later used powers under the Terrorism Act to prevent Mr Wolfgang's re-entry.

I think the scariest thing about the Labour Party these days is its singular lack of a sense of irony. People with no sense of irony are capable of anything.
