Interesting times. Last night, Labour won a by-election off the LD's in Liverpool. I think the LD's are making an almighty hash of things at present locally, and their national profile is non-existent.
But what of Gordon? The lunch with Thatch was a bit of politics, I suppose, and designed, I assume, to enbarrass cameron. I'm not sure it was wise. It will simply remind some of how vile the Tories were, but could even make cameron look nice in comparison. Basically, Labour are undoubtedly going to lose some soft Southern votes to the Tories next time. They may well win a few off the LD's , on the other hand. But actually, Labour can win a decent majority without many more Southern seats, as long as they don't lose a shed-load in Scotland and take a few more northern and Midlands marginals. Dallying with Thatch won't help. Also, Labour need to win back some of the Guardianistas and this won't help in that regard either.
So far, there's nothing which Brown has done which makes me think - yes, I must rejoin the Labour party. I really want to see a change in foreign policy. And personally, I'm not really into all that dour protestant work ethic shite. I'd prefer a bit of fun!
One think I do feel strongly about is the drift towards referenda which i utterly oppose. the Government must not be swayed. The EU treaty should be a decision for parliament, like any other.
