Five years?

Posted on

I gather our new government is to last for five years

I give it the proverbial snowballs chance in hell of lasting that long.

Why?

Well take the aggrieved list of shadow cabinet members without seats.

And the Lib Dems who will defect to Labour before too long.

Two years I buy. Five, no way.

And by then do the Lib Dems seriously think there would be an identity left for them to present to the electorate?

I didn’t want a Tory government.

But now we have it I’m entirely confident it will be a disaster.

And because now there is just one party in opposition Labour cannot fail but win next time.

It won’t be fun until we get there.

But get there we will.

Now, time to move on.

The radical and international agenda beckons.
