The Labour Party have missed so many “open goals” that people have to wonder why. Why have Labour not hammered the Conservatives (or the Coalition) when they have set themselves up to be knocked down with ease. It’s like watching a toddler at the bowling alley – the inflatable bumpers have been set up, and then the child insists on them being taken away.
Now there’s a chance that Labour might get a leader that actually takes the fight to the “enemy”… and a faction within Labour are terrified. It seems to many people that this is probably because those MPs & hangers-on actually *like* what the Tories are doing. Plus the party have had a huge influx of members (not just “supporters”, actual members) and rather than be thrilled and shouting loudly about it, they seem embarrassed & looking for ways to remove as many as they can.
Dear Ms Harman… I became disgusted with the Labour Party in 2003 (well, slightly earlier, but you know what I’m talking about), the fact that I have joined since the end of June should tell you something about why. Don’t touch my membership!
“It is December 2013. Iain Duncan-Smith, Work & Pensions Secretary, attends a hearing in front of the Parliamentary Work and Pension’s Committee. He is surrounded by armed police officers, and even has a personal bodyguard protecting him. They are there to keep him safe from ‘frenzied attacks’ he is apparently expecting from a small group of disability activists. Three of the activists, let it be noted, are in wheelchairs.Now that tells a story of a man who is really scared. Easily scared.”
