Disgruntled at the Labour party

I noticed that the 'disgruntled radical' has summed up the feelings of most of us when he reflected the behaviour of the Labour Party.

The antediluvians of the Labour Party have wrecked any chance of a progressive alliance, confirming what an archaic, conservative force Labour is. David Blunkett and Jack Straw, two of the worst Home Secretaries ever, can't cope with the idea of a government that actually represents the majority of people instead of their own prejudices.

There are many others he could have added to his list of Labour wreckers not least another reactionary Home Sec John Reid. It is amazing that Hurd and Whitelaw turned out to be better Home Secretaries than most of the New Labour holders of the office. I mean Charles Clarke.....

David needs to do some work on his photo shop skills but not withstanding that his picture does make the point.

Polly Toynbee makes the same point in today's Guardian:

So what made the Lib Dems sniff at the feast and walk away? The company at the table was not enticing, as the worst of the old Labour party, the knuckle-dragging neanderthal tendency, emerged to roaring opposition to the guests. David Blunkett, John Reid, Jack Straw, Diane Abbott, now unleashed from government, reminded the world how backward, how unprogressive, tribal and sectarian much of the People's Party still is.
