In obeying the optics driven demand that government must be seen to be unified, the Labour Party is setting itself up for the same fate as the Greens. By Philip O'Connor.
One of the great soccer strike partnerships of the late 90s was between Andy Cole and Teddy Sheringham, who, when they played together, averaged a goal between them every 85th minute.
In other words, putting the two of them on the field together was more or less like giving Manchester United a one-goal head start; it marked one of the most successful periods in the club’s history.
The pair despised each other, and never a single word was spoken between them.
They despised each other, yet they put that aside for the good of the team.
Contrast this with the behaviour of the Labour party in government, where what used to be the worker’s movement now simply shores up the idea that this crisis should be paid for by the weakest in society.Add a comment
