No Alternative, Sadly
Alpaca is really quite nice. Llama and camel are, too. The Save Geronimo lot no doubt eat beef all the time, but have never tasted camelid. They should. Still, it is very sad that Keir Starmer has called for Geronimo's death. He would have been one of the highest calibre additions to Starmer's Future Candidates Programme.
In the Corbyn years, the media types who snorted and cavorted with those who had passed along the conveyor belt from right-wing Labour student hacks to nondescript Labour MPs were forever complaining that talent was going to waste in the Parliamentary Labour Party.
But Labour is now led by just such a middlebrow with a silver spoon sticking out of it. Yet even he thinks that the PLP, or at least that great majority of it which he does not consider politically impossible, has all the intellect and charisma of Geronimo after the shooting.
