In the 1970s, if the National Front had applied to affilate to the National Council for Civil Liberties, would you have opposed them?

As pressure mounts on Harriet Harman, there is one way of noting when the pressure is really telling on Patricia Hewitt. When she was struggling as Health Secretary, New Labour windmill Andrew Marr took to refering to this most haughty of politicians as 'Pat' Hewitt, in a vain attempt to make her seem just like the rest of us.
We will know this issue is really squeezing Patricia Hewitt's neck when she starts to become 'Pat' again.....
