"The acme of respectability" are the words that my mother would have used in referring to Mrs Duffy. The account given of Mrs Duffy's exemplary life and family in the Mail on Sunday is an account of how much New Labour has resentfully devalued and derided.
Mrs Duffy will be voting for the local elections' candidates in Rochdale. As her father always said, she noted, if you don't vote you can have no say afterwards. But not for the national elections; the Labour leadership has lost her support as they have lost the support of so many they took for granted, and Labour will not recover that support until the Party recovers its conscience and repairs its reputation.
