The BBC is carrying a story about political co operation in Liverpool.  We yearn for Bootle Labour Party to be as constructive and sensible. Instead they have chosen to be opportunistic and to play to the gallery of each and every protester. The BBC story begins:

The two main political parties in Liverpool are to unite to tackle the £100m government funding cut the city faces over the next two years.
Ruling Labour and the recently usurped Liberal Democrats are planning to devise a joint budget and "put aside" any politics.
"We are facing the biggest challenge in our history, it's like a war time spirit," deputy leader Paul Brant said.
Lib Dem leader, Warren Bradley, agreed: "We need to protect the vulnerable."
The two party leaders have agreed in principle to work together on the budget, and Mr Bradley expects this to be ratified by his cabinet on Friday morning.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
