About right

And so Labour’s terrible dissipation continues. This is the summer the UK lost its opposition party: once the vanguard of the working class, to use a hilariously outdated term; now a sort of vast and imbecilic student union at a recently upgraded poly.

But that’s not the important point, is it?

What is important is which faction will give Ritchie his peerage?

  1. How does a peerage fit in with his role as a campaigner for ‘equality’ and ‘democracy’?

    Nothing says ‘unearned undemocratic privilege’ louder than a peerage.

    Of course he isn’t interested in equality or democracy, just power for himself. The peerage would just confirm this.

  2. Murphy is still a WGCE but his criticisms of the left actually seem pretty accurate, whatever’s motivating them.

    I’m not sure; it looks like he’s more interested in money than power. Didn’t he turn down a post on McDonnell’s advisory board because it didn’t come with enough cash?

  4. “now a sort of vast and imbecilic student union at a recently upgraded poly.”
    A nice turn of phrase.

  5. Good grief, the cappuccino analogy makes a comeback. This is Murph trying to do thinking again. He is better when he sticks to self-important revenge fantasies
