So what about Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, can they help? Er, no. They’re busy tearing themselves apart. A leader with no authority to lead, insisting on hanging on because he claims he has a mandate from the grass roots of the party. Unless something really spectacular happens in the next few days, either the Labour Party will split into two or more parts, or it will somehow manage to hang on, emasculated. Either way, it is condemned to the political wilderness for a generation.
It’s like a Greek tragedy; our friends in Europe, America and elsewhere can only look on in despair, while our enemies must be rubbing their hands in glee. Whatever did we do to deserve this?
