Labour is hard work

Labour is hard work.

This is not exactly in line with my feelings on the matter, but is pretty close – in particular the lovely statement, ‘the centre is not the centre because you call it that’. I do admire the clarity, honesty and eloquence of this, when I grow up, I’d like to write as well as this.

I do share the pining for politicians with the courage to be publicly passionate, angry, driven by their ideals and beliefs, demonstrating integrity above the need to hold onto power and money. That is what I crave more than, almost, anything.

Come on all you Lions and Lionesses of the leftish, get bloody angry. We are… and we’re  waiting for you to catch up.
