I wrote an honest opinion that suggested that the policy options that I have long proposed on this blog will not see the light of day under the current Labour leadership, whose views they seem to have influenced. As a result I suggested that leadership should now stand aside to give someone else the chance to deliver on those promises. Knowing that this choice would ultimately rest with the Labour Party membership, who seem inclined overall to share some of the opinions that I promote, I thought that an appropriate and measured suggestion since no party leader has any hope of winning an election without the backing of their parliamentary party.
I am sorry to say that many seemed to not read a word I said on policy, and appeared to only note any personal comment.
Others never got beyond the headline and declared I am now a Blairite.
I had hoped for better. I had presumed reasoned argument might be of benefit, and that policy was more important than person if it had become apparent that a person could no longer deliver, whether that was fair or not (and politics is not fair). Clearly that was a mistake on my part.
The reason Corbyn must go is because he hasn’t delivered my Curajus State.
Maybe it’s really just that the peerage didn’t turn up? And yes, there’s good grapevine evidence that he was expecting it, even boasting of it.
