Not All Right

When did Neil Kinnock come to be treated as a serious figure?

Until this year, no one, absolutely no one, had ever regarded him as any such thing. He was joke. A universal joke.

Even Oliver Kamm despises him, a view of which Kamm could do with being reminded this week.

Go to any former pit village, and see Kinnock's only legacy.

Well, apart from the fact that he ruined politics for the Welsh.

Before him, having even as heavy a Welsh accent as Bevan's was no bar to anything.

But it certainly was after him.
