If all these moaning Labour MP's who've just got voted out had have spent more time getting behind the leadership instead of spending most of their time back stabbing, having several votes of no confidence and trying to stage little coups they might still be in a job. Has that occurred to them ? I think not. The MP in question is a right wing member of " The Labour Friends Of Israel " so obviously she won't have an axe to grind will she ? The one good thing about this election is the number of right wing Labour MP's and ex MP's that have been fired. Are you reading this Tom Watson, Caro;ine Flint, George Mann, Chukka Umunna, Ruth Smeeth, Ian Austin etc, John Warburton etc. Off you pop to the dustbin of history.
I'd no confidence In Jim Callaghan, Neil Kinnock, Tony Blair etc but I voted and agitated for all of them. Neither did I stab them in the back for my own personal gain.
Speaking of Neil Kinnock, like most stopped clocks he was right now and again, for me his finest hour, still very relevant today. Just change the name.
" If Margaret Thatcher is re-elected as Prime Minister on Thursday, I warn you, I warn you that you will have pain- when healing and relief depend upon payment.
I warn you that you will have ignorance- when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right.
I warn you that you will have poverty- when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won't pay in an economy that can't pay
I warn you that you will be cold- when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don't notice and the poor can't afford ....
I warn you not to be ordinary, I warn you not to be young, I warn you not to fall ill and not to grow old "
Well he was right about that. 36 years ago and not much has changed has it ?
