breaking bad

Rumours of change

I welcome the rumours that Charles Kennedy might defect to Labour - it's obviously his decision, and I still like him whether he does it or not.

I think David Milliband is wrong for saying he wants to make the Lib Dems extinct. I think the current Lib Dem party is doomed. But it's not Labour's concern whether right wing opinion is represented by one party or two parties, but to win on their own merits. Similarly I despise the comments from the current Government that they will tweak the electoral system to make it impossible for people to elect a Labour government. Both sides should cut this bullshit out.
