Absolutely brilliant. Going to print it off and laminate it and stick it up in our Labour party rooms.

I am awe inspired. Sarah Field has articulated what thousands of us have felt but been unable to express coherently. And with such grace and clarity. It feels like someone just opened the curtains and let in the sunlight. Thank you Sarah. Thank you Graham for being the messenger.

This is a fantastically well written speech. Such extensive points in (depending on reading speed) such small time. Does anyone know if this was filmed? I would love to see the speech, though just reading it was powerful enough. ♥

Sanity on the internet? Go figure ..... thank you for this bracing and unabashed analysis of all the reasons self ID can’t be allowed to happen. Sadly we have it in Canada.

Brilliant, if only more high-profile people could (would) speak out this BS would be consigned to the bin where it belongs. And does it mean that Leeds City Council is operating outside the law seeing as the govt has dropped plans for self ID?

I don't understand how they're blatantly getting away with breaking the law, especially nearly 2 years down the line.
