Current Labour politics are very interesting indeed, the Brownites have routed the Blairites and put their man, Ed Milliband, in the leader’s chair. However he is proving to be spectacularly ineffective and obviously must be removed before Labour face their next general election, otherwise it will be a Conservative rout. Now the prospect of Labour continuing to decline is very appealing to anyone who has seen the immense damage they have done to this country through a mixture of their misplaced socialist dogma and their gross ineptitude. But will the party let it happen?
It looks just now like there is a lot of jockeying going on in the Labour party as to who will replace Ed Milliband. Ed Balls has ruthlessly manoeuvred himself to be the top Brownite candidate and this is not something the Blairites like or want. So it is hardly surprising that a whole pile of documents that incriminate Balls have been leaked to the Daily Telegraph. The Blairites obviously want him to become damaged goods.
Of course from a human personality, loyalty and morality point of view it was despicable that whilst Tony Blair was Prime Minister and leader of the Labour party there was a cabal of his own colleagues seeking actively to undermine him and stab him in the back. Obviously we know that they succeeded and a truly terrible Prime Minister, Tony Blair, was replaced with an even worse Prime Minister in Gordon Brown, possibly the most financially inept Chancellor of the Exchequer in history. Just look at the immense financial hole that he has dropped this country into.
Personally I am enjoying seeing Ed Balls being hung out to dry, it couldn’t happen to a nicer man.
