Yet Here We Are
Andrew Rossindell has put in the hard work, but there is no denying that a commitment to allow tenants to keep pets was in the Labour manifesto. Indeed, it was cited as an example both of policy-heaviness and of a lack of realism. Yet here we are.
On a much larger scale, and to give credit where it is due, the Biden Administration has suspended arms sales to Saudi Arabia and to the United Arab Emirates. Calls for that from Jeremy Corbyn and Emily Thornberry were screamed down by the head-choppers' hired help on the benches behind them. The biggest rebellion of the Corbyn years was a mass abstention rather than condemn the British arming of the genocide in Yemen. Yet here we are.
