Andy Burnham was daft to suggest that something inapproriate was going on between David Davis and Shami Chakrabarti. The Labour Party should stop sniping and put up a candidate if it has the courage of its convictions.

I disagree with David T on Harry's Place who says Shami is also being daft in threatening to sue. I think Burnham should have just issued a gracious apology. But his posting on the matter is very entertaining.
