Dan Jarvis has ruled out himself out of the Labour leadership contest, insisting that he wants to put his children before his immediate political career. The ex-paratrooper, who gave up his military career to become an MP in 2011, was seen by many in the party as an ideal candidate to give the party a fresh start.
While I disagree with him on most things political (we’ve had some limited internet interaction) he has at least had a job, some experience of the real world. Really rather what Labour needs, someone who has that life experience outside that SpAd to MP bubble. There’s very much more to life than the concerns of the SJWs and the party would do much better led by someone who actually understood that.
Of course, if they were led by someone like that then they would do better which isn’t to my benefit or taste. But it would be better for the country…..not that they do better, but that they not be led by hte gurning moron tendency.
