Old Labour. New Labour. Blue Labour. GEER. Next Generation Labour.
All seeking to represent the real views of the people.
Well, you know what?
This real person would like you all to kindly shut up.
I am sick of all the posturing and shouting amongst the Labour Party at the moment – no real person gives a damn who the ‘go-to’ think tank or group of the party is, or whether you’re to the left, right or north-east of the rest of them.
Do you know what they see? A bunch of political nerds trying to oust each other as nerd overlord – and they hate it.
I hate it.
They don’t care about factions or fractures, colours or collaborations – they care about life. You know, that rather important thing we are all finding rather difficult at the moment.
So – here’s an idea for you all – how about we all go knocking on doors or picking up phones, and ask the people what the problems are. How about we ask them what they’d like to see, and not each other.
That’s why I joined – why did you join?
It’s crazy I know, but hey … if everyone else can spend their time hypothesizing and bigging themselves up at the expense of the lost electorate, then why can’t I?
