Angela Eagle reveals she is unfit to be a Deputy Leader of the Labour Party

I am rather incredulous at a line Angela Eagle MP has written in an article for LabourList:  http://labourlist.org/2015/07/the-political-elite-need-to-lay-off-jeremy-corbyn/

She tells us "...replacing the politics of fear which dominates the debate on immigration with a more hopeful narrative that celebrates our diversity. These are the issues that people have wanted to talk to me about as I’ve toured the country..."

I am willing to bet NO-ONE (real people, not activists) wanted to talk to her about a "hopeful narrative that celebrates our diversity".

All the doorstep conversations would have been about curbing the rate and pace of immigration, not coming up with a "narrative" that magics away the consequences (with the usual menacing implication that if you disagree with the official narrative you are a racist and a bigoted person).

Same old lies and out-of-touch analysis of the problems facing ordinary working people.

In this one line Angela Eagle reveals she is unfit to be a Deputy Leader of the Labour Party.
