My message to Luke Bozier
P.s. Tories only like Blair because he stayed in power for so long. In fact he’s not the only person they love for that reason. If I didn’t have principles, I’d probably like someone on that basis alone, too. But, alas, I want to challenge the political class, their lobbyists and the toxic press – not give in to it. You go ahead though, cool handed one, it’ll be good for you. And of course you can come back anytime. Perhaps when your love of politics is based on more than just winning the election, but winning the debate. I mean sure, Blair won all those elections, but do we live in a better country? Got to ask yourself, did I join the Labour party because I’m massively into short term bursts of power for my mates, or do I want to change the world. For all your posturing on enterprise this, and I want this for children that, what it really boils down to is you want to win elections no questions asked. Well, that’s not for me. I want to win elections because I’m doing this country good, and I’m making sure the best is pursued for it, and the most vulnerable don’t suffer in spite of it. Yup, you join the Tories. It’s just a game to you, isn’t it, er, Luke. That bloke what’s off twitter zzzzzz.
Statement to follow.
