Of course, Shami Chakrabarti is just using Andy Burnham's rather unfunny comments (I'm amazed if people see them as anything other than that) to gain a few newspaper columns and airtime for herself and her cause. Fair enough, that's the game.
Anyway, she has certainly given the comments a good airing. Everyone would have read this edition of Progress magazine eventually because everyone does. Good then that the comments were so powerfully rebutted or what might people have thought?
This is all rather silly.
