Winning the Argument

There's a Will Hutton article in the Observer today called "Don't Call For His Head. Respect his leadership". In this article, he says "the issue, as always in politics, is about winning the argument, both within your own party and with your opponents".

Well, Blair's refusal to participate in genuine open debate is one of the reasons why people from all sides are calling for this resignation.

Fortunately, Hutton's article is also available on the Guardian's Comment is Free blog. Goodie. I'll be able to engage in a debate. let's see who wins the argument.

Oh. Comments are disabled.

Hee hee. Way to go Will. Practice what you preach and all that.

I've just checked the point of Comment is Free:
The aim is to host an open-ended space for debate, dispute, argument and agreement and to invite users to comment on everything they read.

The blog is updated regularly through the day, with best blogs featuring on our pick of the day. We also carry all the comment from the Guardian and Observer newspapers, giving readers the chance to comment on these articles directly for the first time.
A good idea it is too.


Thanks to Sunny for pointing out that I may have been a little harsh on Mr Hutton. It seems that a technical problem may be to blame for the disabled comments. I withdraw the accusation of hypocrisy and offer my apologies.
