Prepare for a real insight:
I can’t help feeling that Labour have spent the last however-many-years-in-power trying to clean up after some people, most notably the Tory government that preceded them, and placate others, most notably the US; and that for doing this they’ve actually been blamed for the mistakes said other people (Tories/US) made, or they’ve been blamed for the things they haven’t got around to sorting out yet, or they’ve been blamed for things that are actually way out of their remit or control.
Yeah, told you it was insightful. And when I say ‘insightful’ I really mean unoriginal/massively generalising/late-night-thinking/possibly-actually-wrong; but that is what I think, from what shamefully little I know. It would be good if I could have my entire desktop taken over by the front page of the guardian/bbc website or something.
Anyway. This is why I’m still happy to say I support the Labour party. They were basically dealt a number of bad hands. Yes?
