Ah the poor old Labour Party. Was it only a year ago we were heartily sick of their spin doctoring and slick presentation? Now confronted with a leadership racing about, shouting at random like angry toddlers I cannot help but think they should have.....oh Christ I don't know...at least given the appearance of speaking to each other occasionally.
Good Lord if the British bit and Scottish bit of a unionist political party can't even agree on their strategy to defeat Scottish nationalism, what hope is there for the union? Well actually there's stacks of hope. Both sides underestimate the Scottish love of whining. It's a curious thing but the most staunch unionists I know spend their two weeks in Spain fighting the English for being arrogant cunts, yet suggest they might not wish to be part of a political alliance with a country they despise and they start panicking about being economically ruined. Suggest that they should then be grateful to the English for helping them out and they become homicidal. It's a funny thing the old unionism.
In fairness I can understand it in Scottish politicians, it's only the union that allows them to swank round London with bags of money. London has it's attractions not least amongst them several Vivienne Westwood outlets, though clearly that is not foremost in Wendy Alexanders mind. I don't know if it's intentional but she looks like a woman who'd be chuffed to bits with a BHS voucher and a lunch at Jacket Junction. I hate to be rude but she's a bit 'shopping centre' isn't she?
I did plan to go on to mock Gordon Brown but really all he's done is treat Alexander with the contempt she deserves. Look at her, listen to her, observe her 'strategy' and really you can't blame him. Let's face it, it's the first bit of good judgement he's shown since becoming PM.
