Former Tower Colliery boss Tyrone O'Sullivan expressed his disgust over the findings, saying it was Lord Kinnock's reward for failing to support the miners during the 1984 strike. Former deputy Labour leader of Liverpool City Council Derek Hatton said,"nobody should be surprised by the findings, as Lord Kinnock had set the party on the road to embracing Thatcherism.
Mr Hatton went on the say,"He paved the way for Tony Blair, who simply carried on in the way that Thatcher had carried on. He created the launch pad for the greedy and selfish society and nobody should be surprised that he has done the same".
Labour MP for Anglesey Albert Owen said,"the political shift under Lord Kinnock from old to new Labour was necessary otherwise we would never have got back into office.
The real stitch up!
