Blair apology to ejected heckler!

Tony Blair, obviously shaken by yesterday's events, has now said sorry for the brutal assault on Walter Wolfgang. The prime minister told BBC Breakfast, "I am really sorry about it, it shouldn't have happened." Mr Blair said "it is difficult for stewards who are volunteers" when someone is interrupting a speech. But, he told the BBC, there had to be better training for stewards in the future to ensure such incidents were handled sensitively. Umm!? No mention of the right of free speech. He seems so hell-bent on his terrorism laws and his control of the party that he cannot bring himself to state categorically that there will be no more of this kind of activity. Shame, I say!
